I have made a poll on three message boards, with the following question:
Are individuals naturally good or evil?
A. On the whole, individuals are naturally good.
B. On the whole, individuals are naturally evil/corrupt.
C. I believe in blank slate: humans are not naturally anything.
D. Neither of these choices.
Here are the combined results:
Naturally good- 36% (21)
Naturally evil- 5% (3)
Blank slate- 33% (17)
Neither- 26% (15)
There were no significant differences between Market Anarchists, Left-Libertarians and Anarcho-Communists (with one exception: Anarcho-Communists answered blank slate far more often, which is not that surprising for a more utopian bunch).
Incidentally, my hypothesis was that no Anarchist would answer “naturally evil.” Apparently I was wrong, as three people did. One of them was a Christian, so that’s understandable (offensive and retarded, but understandable). I don’t know why the other two did.
