As a species, I think humans are cooperative. But I think we live so far from the conditions we are hard-wired for that most people make a lot of bad decisions through their lives. But people try their best.

Humans just are; their actions are often good...their actions are often bad...and that's just how it is.

Yes, there is truth to the fact that many humans can be a destructive force on the planet, yet there is no need to regard us only in a negative light, to view ourselves as merely a cancer or plague sweeping the Earth as that only sees one side of a complex coin.

As Edwin M stated, sometimes we see only what the media shines their light upon, focusing only on the most negative aspects of human behaviour. Good news is not often featured but is generally ignored.

It is intriguing when some believe that most humans are so destructive and somehow therefore unworthy of even life itself.
