Human Nature

If human nature is ugly, then two particular circumstances come to mind that force it out, despite our best efforts to uphold pretensions of civility. They are (1) being in a group, and (2) being in a desperate situation where basic needs or desired resources are lacking such that transactional and competitive behaviour is motivated.

I'm quite keen to figure out if there are more circumstances that rear nature's ugly head.
