Unit III Discussion Board Question
Essential to understanding and managing people are the underlying assumptions about the human condition--
These questions are timeless and can be found throughout human history in the literature of every era:
 
Perhaps you read some of those books that were assigned in high school and can extrapolate the position of the author from the view of the world presented in the book/movie/story/song. 
Trading Places.  Simple nature versus nurture;
Lord of the Flies, What happens when well-bred English boys are placed into as situation without societal rules;
Sleepers/ Count of Monte Cristo, revenge/justice/restitution/retribution?;
Moby Dick, obsession and selfishness;
Paradise Lost, fear of success;
the Divine Comedy, roadmap of behavior and the long-term outcome and consequences;
The Prince, the ultimate manger's handbook;
The Great Gatsby,  moral character ;
Every play by Gilbert & Sullivan (Pinafore, Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado) , about honor & duty;
most of work by Shakespeare Romeo & Juliet, MacBeth, anything with Henry in the title) humans handling suffering;
most ancient Greek works—relationship between character & fate, how one's own choices produce the inevitable outcome (karma?)
These are presented as stories about a person, but are written as commentary on all humans.  One could argue that the New Testament of the Bible subscribes to one of these three positions.
 
What is the inherent nature of a human?
 
Humans are inherently good, and will choose to do the right thing unless corrupted;
Humans are inherently evil and will devolved to acting badly unless corrected or controlled by some forces—family, religion, government, education, etc.
Humans are inherently a blank slate—tabula rasa—a Latin term that refers to the epistemological idea that individuals are born without built-in mental content and that therefore all knowledge comes from experience or perception, so too, there is no predisposition for behavior and therefore all behavior is learned as a complex process of social interaction starting at birth.
 
 
Choose one of these positions and ONLY one—don't try to say all of these are true. The inherent human condition has to be one thing, and inherent means, that like instinct in animals, it would be present in all examples of the species, and shape (or drive) the life of the individual.
 
 After making your choice, explain why you chose this with specific examples.
 In a separate paragraph, taking the position you explained, what are the natural and logical implications for  maintenance of order—essentially the criminal justice system—
 
This is an exercise and is not about being right—there is no right, only logically consistent explanation that are rationally connected to the position taken.  Take the position, embrace the underlying assumptions that go with your choice, and follow through with "so what?"—meaning if I accept your position as factual, and your assumptions about the human condition as correct, then what does this mean for the way in which society should be structured, and how we should respond to these who follow and fail to follow the rules for society.
