Human Nature

“Human nature is dualist: human beings kind and nasty; they’re avaricious but they have a capacity for self-sacrifice; they’re endless cowardly and lying, but also have a penchant for courage, and glory–that’s what we ARE.

“The great religions have actually always KNOWN what we are, [hence] they shift Utopianism and the desire that we can be different from what we are, to another world.”

–Jonathan Bowden, New-Left Marxism & the Frankfurt School
