If Victor Frankl is correct and we must expect the best in people how do we still anticipate the worst?
Our current economic and governmental issues relate very clearly to the nexus between expecting that which is best in people and anticipating that which is the worst in people and determining how to balance both. If we expect people to be honest and good they do not always prove us right. How do we establish a governmental or regulatory system which includes both? How does a society allow for freedom while balancing our freedom to behave as we see fit with our freedom from the behavior of others?
