What is good? It's decided by people's values and rules. If people create the rule that is difficult for them, they think they are naturally not good. If they create the rule that is easy for them, they think they are naturally good.
I would say that one must first define "good". For the purposes of this discussion, I would define it as something to the affect of "progress in society," in which case I would say that people are wired to be good for/to their tribe.
most are. I wouldnt say all
We're wired to connect. We're wired to be altruistic. We're wired to love and care for each other. It's maladaptive schema and power that corrupts everyone's inherent goodness.
