When you look at the graph on the right you may feel compelled to jump on the negative bandwagon. But when you read more into it, these words describe the public opinion of the economy, race relations, media coverage and politics. Yes, these are important and they do impact us, but they are easily fueled by controversy and strong ‘left’ or ‘right’ opinions. It’s the hatred, violence and prejudice that get so much attention because they are so much louder and much more visible.
I believe most people regardless of their race, religion or gender want to be kind. Go and talk to people and you will be amazed by their kindness and generosity. We are predisposed to act cooperatively and to help others even when it costs us.
