Gens sont intrinsèquement honnêtes ou malhonnêtes ?

Je pense qu'il est difficile pour dire si les gens sont intrinsèquement honnêtes ou malhonnêtes. Je dis ça parce que quand gens grandir ils ont vu leurs parents ont fait. De là, la personne a appris choses et parfois les personnes voient que c'est mal être malhonnêtes. Ou ils ne s'en soucient pas assez donc, ils restent malhonnêtes. Depuis, c'est la seule vie, ils connaissent, et peut-être qu'ils sont peur de changer.

Honnête ou malhonnête

Je ne pense pas que les gens sont honnête ou même malhonnête. Cela dépend sur la société qu'on vive. Une socéité est très importante pour notre épanouissement, elle nous forme ce qu'on est, nos comportements, nos croyances, etc. C'est aussi une protection de soi, on choisira si on ment ou on dit la vérité, tout dépend sur les conséquences on va rencontrer après. En conclusion, les gens ne sont pas nés honnête ou malhonnête. Cela dépend sur la société, l'environnement qu'on vive.

¿La gente es honesta o deshonesta?

Considero que las calidades humanes son como espectros de colores, con el blanco en una extremidad, en negro en la otra, y sombras de gris entre ambos. Pues, pienso que hay una minoridad de la gente que es por naturaleza honesta, una otra minoridad enteramente deshonesta, pero la mayoría es más o menos deshonesta según las circunstancias. Sin embargo, a mi modo de ver, la humanidad de manera general tende a ser deshonesta. A los humanos la verdad les chupa un huevo. Quieren más bien sus proprios egos y sus proprias creencias (que sean buenas o malas). A veces, mienten para evitar que asuman sus responsabilidades, o mienten para jactarse. "Embellecen" la realidad, proclamando que tienen dinero, un alto estatus social o tales cosas, porque por desgracia, son los valores mediocres por los cuales la gente se define ahora. No debemos olvidar que hay situaciones en que la honestidad no sirve a ninguno. Un caso típico: si su mejor amigo le presenta su nuevo corte de pelo pidiendo su opinión, y que piensa que es feo, decirlo no va a hacer nada sino herrir al amigo inútilmente. Deberíamos poder ser honestos con nuestros amigos, es verdad, pero todo el mundo no puedo soportar la honestidad brutal todo el tiempo. Por tanto, en algunos casos, es necesario hallar un equilibrio.

The Evil Seed

There is a science fiction movie named "Voyagers" that talks about this topic. Well, not, but it is look like. The topic that talk is about wickedess. Is does the evil inherent to human being or the man is good for nature? Is a good question. Usually the truth is not white or black, is in a grey tone. The genetic could bring the evil seed? Could be, but in my opinion, a traumatic and hard life could also affect, to worse, in the normal behavior of a human being.

People are honest or dishonest?

Usually, I think people are honest because that is just how I think, positive. And there is also a reason why I think positively about others. It's because people are prone to laugh more, and think you are more compatible with them or more fun to hang around. They'll think you won't think bad and talk behind their back. Let's consider the opposite side of the coin if you think negatively about a person but it's not true. They will oftentimes get really angry, or just straight up think you are not the fun person to hang around. Of course, this is all my speculation :))

Writing Practice

First, this question itself has something wrong. You can't say people are honest or dishonest, and can't say they are inherently. Every person can be honest or dishonest, and it completely depends what outcome they will face if they are being honest. If people face unfavorable situations when they are being honest, then they will choose to be dishonest. When they won't face unfavorable situations if they are being honest, I believe they will choose to be honest. Being dishonest, in my opinion, is just a kind of self protection, so if being honest would never cause any unfavorable situations, why do people need to be dishonest? That everyone wants to be a good person is always my belief. If people understand this, the so-called "are inherently" is not worth debating.

Social factors of honesty or dishonesty

I don't think it is related to inherency but it is a matter of social circumstances of the society in which people are born to. Starting from the childhood, the social environment we live in can shape our core values, beliefs and subsequently, our behaviour. If a society's core values, where themes and effectiveness of the education about moral concepts are usually unadequate, are mostly based on social prejudice and hierarchy. When coupled by public trust issues, it is inevitable that most of the people feel insecure about their life circumstances, and thus, this may lead to trust issues between individuals of the society as well. Justice is also a crucial point in sustaining public trust among individuals. Personal dishonest or honesty is depend on whether public trust is ensured by the government that built up a strong judicial sytem or not. If most of the people feel insecure in a society due to economic, social, moral and ethnic factors, and usually don't trust the objectivity of judicial system, then it is reasonable that why people are often dishonest. In the opposite version, this time, the degree of honesty on a personal scale may be observed.
