Humans may not be so bad after all

"It's actually a quite subversive idea, because if we can actually trust each other, then maybe we don't need this really hierarchical society." This historian wants you to wonder: What if humans weren't so bad after all?

    Communist and dictatorial Humans have and are perpetrating the mass murders of multi-millions and the current world (so praised by Bregman as he trys to sell his book) DOES NOTHING! How is that for stomping and flattening Bregman's false ideas. AND the current group and gang and pack violence occurring all over the world shatters Bergman's nonsensical notions as proves beyond any doubt the thin veneer is real, is very thin, and very fragile. The barbarity of humans are easily found not far below the surface. AND everyone of us is bad to the bone as murders, rape, assaults, bullying, thefts, scammers, cheats, and liars prove beyond all doubt that Bergman is a charlatan at best and a liar at worst.

    Yeah..reality check. The rich got richer, the poor got poorer. If you 're in the top 2% of the "haves" in the U.S. , you're doing better and better. If you a white male, you're at the top of the food chain. Blacks, Hispanics, women proportionally less healthy, and victims of poverty, and police brutality. Lots of work to do !

    Intriguing & possible but only if there was a majority of people who respected themselves & others! I think most people are born w/the ability to give & recieve love but there are alot of factors that ultimately determine whether that remains!

    Who is “we”? I guess he means the human race in general? Or white males specifically?
