Do you agree or disagree, and why?

What is our nature? Is it dependent upon the person and/or his genetics?
If it isn't, I'd assume that one could change it, as it isn't "hard-wired."

Are characteristics part of our nature?
Hitler- If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

Stalin- Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.

Machiavelli- It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.

Ivan the Terrible- "I will not see the destruction of the Christian converts who are loyal to me, and to my last breath I will fight for the Orthodox faith

I agree. I changed my self destructive behavior and learned to control it. But the inclination to travel down that road is always my first choice.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
