Are humans born good ,evil , or neither?
What are qualities that makes us human? Freedom? Sexuality? Self-Awareness?
My personal opinion is that humans hate being controlled which is why it's difficult to control someone.(ie They long for freedom)
What are some of your opinions on human nature?

Beyond the body/mind is a consciousness that longs to express and to share unconditionally.
And the evil is when the mind becomes greedy to make that spiritual expression happen. That is out of the scope of what the mind can do so in the "pursuit of happiness" lies a long trail of destruction as people and things are consumed for a happy moment.
The greed is instinctual...no one can eat, sleep, drink, reproduce for you. There is stuff in life that only you can do for yourself.
When that greed is turned into a pursuit of happiness, then again, the evil happens.
One thing the mind gets greedy for is the answer to "who am I?" and the end result is the destructive ego. Ego destroys the moment, prevents love from happening.
Greed isn't bad or good. What's behind the greed determines that.
