Human nature bothers me.

My whole novel is about how cruel and lazy human nature is. ¬† The whole thing I’m grappling with is,¬†basically, is how did people let Stalin happen? And the answer is, people let Stalin happen the same way that you pass by a piece of litter on the street without throwing it out, or see a car stranded on road and don’t slow down to help.

We are a planet of assholes.
