    as a whole, make a general statement, are people for the most part honest or hishonest? ok, make it easy: you are abducted by beings from another planet, they are doing a study on earthlings. they ask you many questions, one of them is, "are human beings, as a whole, honest or dishonest?" what would you say?

    Honest. It's those few bad people that make you think twice, but as a whole I feel people are honest.
