  • We are savages by default

    We are savages by default, the only factors that allows us act civilized is the rules of the land and availability of resources (food, and the ability to mate at will). You take that away and it will be mad max or worse. Let not lie to our self's, look at history, look at the Indians, the maya empire, those are relatively new society yet they were by today standards savage. As civilization progress it allow the best to be kept in check just waiting for any chance to surface.

  • We be savage AF

    We do things that make us savage. Our thoughts make us savage and our actions make us savage. We kill, hurt, destroy, break, just violent in general. We hurt other people, we kill other people, We break things/people, we do things that are savage AF. So that makes us SAVAGE/CRAY!

  • Human Predator or Prey

    All of us have something savage within, it's what drives us to fight for what we believe is ours; even if it isn't. I believe any man or woman is capable of stabbing, shooting, or murdering someone in some other variation so long as the situation properly presents itself. I think savagery is only a negative concept to those who have yet to use it for what it is, a way to protect that which we "claim". Though some people are born without the capacity to reject the "animal within", those who are able to reject it will only continue to do so till they break. This is still a kill or be killed world, some people are just too sheltered or have too big a false sense of faith in humanity to recognize what a human carries with in him. Embrace the predator and keep what you own or live as prey and lose what you thought you deserved.

  • Yes more so than not

    Humans need the inherent violence to live. "Survival of the fittest," it still applies now and always will. Take war for example, you can't win playing nice or showing mercy. If one is deprived of what they need, they turn into a different person. Take mobs for example. Some go into a mob and come out not knowing why they did what they did. If a person is stranded with a few others, no help in sight. They will eventually care for themselves as time goes on. Lord of the Flies is a perfect example for this.

  • The definition of savage means fierce, violent and uncontrolled.

    Although I don't think that (in the US at least) we are uncontrolled, we are to some extent. We all don't have a guard at our door to make us directly controlled, but we have laws to abide to so we can say that we are controlled. The world is a very violent place. Between the middle east going through these wars, north Korea being assholes, and the US and the daily violence on the streets of cities, rapes, drugs, and shootings, I can strongly say that Human nature is violent. With all these wars going on, human nature is fierce. On a smaller scale with regular everyday people, we can have anger issues and fights. So for the most part, I would say Yes, human nature is savage... Very, very savage.

  • Lord of The Flies

    Well, it is quite hard to picture ourselves as being "savage" in this age in time because we have become very civilised. However, the savage nature is innate in all human beings because we are born in this world to survive. This concept of "survival" is for all organisms on earth, and they would do anything to survive. In the Lord of The Flies, Golding clearly depicts this idea throughout the novel because he understands that savagery is inherent in all human beings as it is the natural instinct to survive.

  • Not at all

    Human nature constantly changes, but it has developed to the point where our race is not built upon natural savagery. Of course, violence still happens throughout our race, but those are choices which are instilled by our own minds and teachings, not that which we are naturally taught to do.

  • No not at all...

    We as humans are no "beast" we are not animals. The majority of us anyways. Just because someone does a small crime does not make them savage. As humans we make mistakes but we are not all savage. Some of display the savage lifestyle but the others act humane and know what's right and what's not. Just because someone messes up once doesn't make them inhumane or savage.

  • Torn between Yes and No

    I chose no because it has less votes. Most humans have a natural instinct to be savage, but not all humans. People won't always use war as an answer. There are so many people who hate violence, yet the others cheer it. I wouldn't call the entire human race savage, a lot of use just do what we need to survive, and that isn't savage unless we go beyond doing what we need to.

  • Not savage; well, not entirely.

    There was once a distinction between "barbarians" and "savages," without which there is practically no difference between the two. All civilized societies began in barbarism and rose above it, in stages, toward highest civilization--both on their own and by external influence. Savages, however, never rise above savagery in their natural surroundings, however may attain certain levels of civilization when immersed in it from birth.

  • 'Savage'. Bit of an extreme analysis on human nature

    If we were Savage then we'd live exactly like the people before us, with primitive lifestyles and going on murderous rampages to aquire land or be dominant. We have progressed a lot since those times and find that we can communicate with others through civilized, mutual understanding. The term Savage would possibly apply to those who understand the laws of humanity, but breach them knowingly. Such as becoming a notorious serial killer etc.

  • Yeah we're greedy and selfish and cruel at times

    But that doesn't mean we're savages, does it? Human nature is what we as humans make it to be. What does savage even mean? It means to be uncivilized or barbaric state or condition; barbarity. Are we uncivilized? And are we barbaric? Well i don't think we're uncivil, we have governments and stuff, were not barbaric because we don't go smashing everything we see, we maybe angry sometimes but then we forgive and move on. So what are we? WE ARE HUMAN

  • We are not savages

    Survivng doesnt mean you are savage, if you kill an animal its ok, if your rip off their head than pour the blodd out of the animal for no reason than yea we are. People dont do that kind of stuff though, unless they are on something or they are like this in the first place.

  • I don't think all humans are savages

    To start off with, humans have evolved furthermore there is a difference between our ancestors and us today. We are not savages. There are many vegetarians if that is the case. Let's look at the book "Lord of the Flies". Nobody denies that many children traded savagery for civilization, however not all characters did. This brings us back to the real world, where many of us are violent and the desire for power and finances is common, yet not everyone is like that. There are many people who live in happiness without money, in fact those are the true happy people. I do not agree that ALL human nature is savage, because there are many exceptions that are seen in the real world and are also portrayed in many novels.

  • Only sometimes

    Human nature, and the nature of all organic creatures, is constantly changing as organisms adapt to their environment. As most of you know, this is called evolution. As to whether human nature is currently savage, I would say for the most part no. We have come to a point where we as a species adapt to our environment through cooperation and non-violent means. Of course violence is perpetuated by a small minority, but most people are not that way.
