Landlords and Leviathan, or "People Are Evil."

The eternal optimist is beginning to lose faith in people. I'm flashing back to my days as a poli-sci major discussing whether people are generally good by nature or purely self-interested. I've always believed that ultimately, people want to cooperate and help each other. This whole being-a-landlord thing, however, is leading me to believe that Hobbes was right.

It's a good thing I'm defecting to Europe, otherwise I might need to change my political affiliation to something less dependent on human nature as good.

(On that note, if you know anyone looking for a rental house: We can negotiate.
