  • 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.

  • Yes, humans are savages.

    Throughout time humans have caused harm to themselves and other things near them. They were born like animals, it is just that they have a little bigger brain, to try and be civilized. Most humans can be civilized or "tamed" as they grow up. But you do still have the ones who are driven as animals. They are driven to provide for their family or just provide for themselves, whether it be for food, fun, or game. We are all truly evil inside.

  • Yes human beings are savages

    Through the centuries various forms of social control have been used to restrict and check the inherent savagery and wildness in humans. Religion has sought to do this in the past and the state, in more recent times. But it's like trying to tame a wolf or a tiger. Every so often the wildness in us breaks out and creates havoc.. So war games are devised and encouraged to channel this wildness and when those fail, real wars are fought so the thirst for blood can be slaked in an 'organized' manner. This is preferable to members of a society tearing each other's throats out when overcome by blood lust. This is why every society, every country, has an external enemy. We are a damned, doomed species. We're not just savage and wild, we're also incredibly cruel because we're cursed with the instincts of the beast combined with imagination. There's so much more to say but I'll leave it here.

  • Yes human nature is savage.

    As nature tends to keep revealing to us, human nature has always be savage. In history of humans, one human had always wanted to be on top, and it seems they are willing to kill and destroy in order to achieve it. Just like animals humans are bound by their nature no matter how far evolved they become and will still play by their instincts at times.

    Governments have laws. Here in the United states and almost everywhere there are laws, or rules, that people have to obey. All governments have laws. We, the people learn to follow rules as we grow up.

  • 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.
