Oh, no, don’t delete it. It is kind of dark, yes, but I agree with what you said. I do believe all humans are capable of horrible things.
I also agree that a lot of us are good judges of character. However to judge a character you do have to get to know the person a little bit. By then it can already be too late.
An other problem here is that humans do make snap decisions on others based on their appearance. And once such a first impression is made, it is damned near impossible to change. This snap decision is made on things we already learned in our lives. And the one thing we learn a lot from, since the beginning of society, are stories. Doesn’t matter if we’re talking about fairy tales, or religious text, or the latest block buster movie, stories shape the way we view the world.
That’s what my blog was partially about, how the stories we tell are working against us.
