I think that most of us do, like others already said, under the right circumstances.
But i dont think that we all do.

I think we all have a dark side. Saying we all have a killer inside of us though IMO is a bit extreme.

One certainly does not need to be mentally unstable to kill another human. There is research that indicates that most humans are naturally loathe to kill something they identify as being "one of us". This is part of why most militaries use the training methods they do. They need to overcome that natural inhibition that can cause hesitation or prevent killing. For some humans, there isn't much inhibition at all.

I was once introduced to a friend of a friend with the following: "If you give him a machine that pops out a cookie when you push a button, but it will cause genocide for an entire race of people, as long as he doesn't know them, as soon as he's hungry he'll push that button." I can't say I'm anywhere near that bad, but I don't necessarily see human life as inherently precious. On the flipside I don't see it as something to end willy-nilly either. To take a life simply requires sufficient justification. Where that lies varies from person to person. If you're not someone I have any investment in (emotionally), that will certainly lower the bar for justification. While I may be a bit more extreme with regards to that last bit than most people, I think it holds true for pretty much everyone.

I expect it's not physically demanding, only mentally.
So anyone could be a killer, even by accident.

Am I a killer if I make people want to kill themselves just by talking to them.

I don't know... I feel I could kill now the question would be could I live with myself afterwards... I would have issues if there wasn't a good reason for me killing the person.. they threatened my family, terrorist, war.

Killed lots of flies and ants... with great prejudice. Hate those buggers.

Now if you're talking about murder, that's just wrong. Murder is murder. You seriously have to be a psychopath to just maliciously kill another human being.

Anyone is capable of killing. Killing is easy but it is hard to forget

I think every human on the planet has the capacity to murder and kill. I do not believe that being evil or brutish is within "human" nature per say, I do know for a fact that a little over 8% of our DNA is not from humans at all but from viruses if you take that in mind it makes sense to see some over hostility's some people play off the way a virus behaves more so then how we feel humans should act. if the earth is the body the human race is the virus and we treat the world as if we are cancer always feeling the need to invade and take over something that's not ours ...sorry I'm ranting I had a point....im just baked I will come back to this eventually ;-)

Everyone can kill if pushed to the limits.

The question is not if they can but what will make them do it.
