What is it about the beast of human nature that requires many to tear down the beautiful and the good?
I believe the answer is it is easier to tear down beautiful things than to build them. Building beauty takes dedication, purpose and the help of others, while tearing down takes the trifling effort of a single person.
I believe it is more convenient to be bad than good. Being good requires caring about things beyond yourself, to volunteer your spirit for possible exploitation and to beg the same commitment from others who may not share your value system. One person with a singular bad intent can tear down empires.
