As it has been known to us, Man in nature is good. The Bible itself supports this idea. I have never heard of someone saying that man in nature is bad.

Also, the movie revealed to me the importance of leadership and the kind of ruling a selected leader of a certain group imposes to his followers. It is very important to consider the qualities of choosing a good leader.

Instead, every time they kill, they felt power and strength as compared to the other group. Thus, erroneous conscience was illustrated.
