Yeah, I think everyone who is conscious is capable of harbouring the intent to kill. It's just that by and large, we understand that it's generally more beneficial for us, both practically and psychologically, not to do so. Because of that, we both resist violent urges when they do come up, and discourage ourselves from being prone to those urges in the first place. The less violence we have, the more likely we are to live longer and more rewarding lives, so unless a person likes violence for its own sake, they won't be naturally disposed to violence unless that violence is a means to an end that matters to them enough to overshadow the risks.

Do you think any of us can become a good killer? How do you think it may stem? (Aside from being criminally insane.)

Do you think the "feel for bloodlust" is a real and/or common practice?

I find it very difficult to take your statements serious because of your avatar profile lol... But yeah it's pretty rational this could occur to any one of us to express hostile desires. Thankfully this response doesn't linger on too much, or at least I believe so.

I don't know your definition of "good killer", but I know I'd be very fucking careful to cover my tracks if I ever did murder a motherfucker. So yeah, I think I'd be a good killer.

Simply put, killing is a natural part of survival.
We just never evolved poison glands because we invented the Internet.

Under normal circumstances, no.

Under extraordinary circumstances, I think we'll mow down hundreds. If someone comes between you, and something more valuable to you than life, then the part of you which may never had any desire to bring violence to anyone may lash out.

That is why most murders are in the "heat of the moment." You walk in on your SO power-bottoming someone, your adrenaline shot to the arm suddenly makes you into a very basic being, fight or flight. That's that.

So yes, there is a killer in all of us that thankfully most of us will never get to see.

I've met people who wouldn't kill insects, let alone another person. I'd say there is one in most of us, but not all.

I don't think everyone has the ability. Even in war with soldiers being shot at there are records of people never firing their gun, even to save themselves.

I imagine I could do it though.
