We Are Born With Evil
In the everyday life we always witness some sort of cruel act inflicted by a human on to another. Cruel actions range from people verbally to physically hurting others.

As you can see list can go on forever about things going wrong. That why we need problems in this world and that is why we should be born with evil in us so
