This guy isn't saying much that I hadn't already suspected

But Bill Tierny makes a very good point about this absurd idea that mankind is good. This is only a quote from an article here you should read concerning perceptions in the world opinion 'market'.

"Gun control and Arms control both arise from the “mankind is good” worldview.
If you control the environment, i.e. get rid of the guns, then man’s natural goodness will rise to the surface. I hope it is evidence after more than a decade of Iraqi intransigence how foolish this position is."
