Man is a beast. A savage selfish beast. An animal that only respects in their heart what that one heart feels. A being that will fake consideration in the presence of gain or lose.
A man that is not blind to mankind's ignoble spirit will be a tough competitor.
Man only fears being struck down, not striking down. Not killing, but being killed. This being so; killing and inflicting pain become easy.
It is within that ease whether or not a soul can be found to be good or bad.
A question of whether or not the savage will be...savage!
