Harvard scientists now say Mr. Rogers was right: People are fundamentally kind and decent | INC

Fred Rogers had a unique perspective on natural human behavior. Going against evolutionary ideas and Christian theology, both of which say humans are inherently bad despite being on opposite ends of the spectrum, Mr. Rogers believed people were kind and good. Researchers at Harvard and Yale decided to test his theory with a recent study. During the experiment, participants were asked to comment on how they would react during a certain situation during and afterwards during reflection. The results yielded that during the reflection phase, more people chose to do the right thing or be kind. For example, people were more likely return a lost wallet they found after they had time to weigh both decisions on their conscience.
