Man's nature at birth is bad or good? （ 人之初性本恶， 还是善呢？？？）
People are born naturally good ... and then his parents (who raise him up ) contribute with a big deal in directing him/her to be "bad" or "good" ... then when its time to make his own decision .. he/she choose to do what they see is "right " .
But the question is , what is "bad" and what is "good" ? Do you think everyone has same definition for it ?
I don't mean any offence, but in my opinion, there is no point in discussing whether man's nature is good or evil. Actually no one does good all the time. Neither does anyone do evil all the time. Supposing I heard that someone who gave a beggar $1 a week ago stole $1000 yesterday, I would not be suprised. The most important thing is to build a political/legal system in which no one dare do anything to harm others and no one can do evil without being punished.
