This is the third and last part of my BLOG on evil. An article, Interaction between epigenetics and genetics by Michael Ragland states “If people (perhaps mainly males), with the gene grow up in an environment in which their emotional needs are negated they more likely than other people tend towards antisocial behavior, but if these needs get fulfilled (if people with this gene grow up in a loving-enough environment) no such behavioral effects eventuate.” Nurturing our young seems to be so important to their well-being and maybe to ours if they are left un-nurtured. Certainly parents that don’t nurture their children are causing a serious travesty but maybe we are as well to allow these conditions to exist. Eventually they affect all of us. What do you think?
