This is inspirational Freedom Essay 4

 

Anne Frank’s beliefs in the fundamental goodness
of people and of the ultimate rehabilitation of
the human race are confirmed and fulfilled by
Griffith’s treatise

 

 

In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart… I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.

(Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl, 1947)

Despite facing unimaginable horrors brought about by our species’ capacity for destruction and depravity, the extraordinary diarist and Holocaust victim Anne Frank’s faith in the basic goodness of all humans remained intact.

 

In fact, in writing that “people are really good at heart”, Anne displayed the hope, faith and trust in our species’ goodness that has allowed humanity to carry on throughout its turbulent history a faith that, as astonishing as it sounds, has finally been borne out in biologist Jeremy Griffith’s ground-breaking explanation of our seemingly ‘good-and-evil’-afflicted human nature. While not condoning ‘evil’ in any form, his explanation of why our species has been capable of such ruthless behaviour reveals that despite all the horror and suffering we have caused, humans are fundamentally good actually the heroes of life on Earth!

This is the explanation we have been waiting for, the explanation that represents the end of the need for ‘faith’ in our goodness, because we can now know we are good at the most fundamental level.

 

And most wonderful of all, this redeeming understanding actually brings an end to our insecurity-driven horrifically selfish, competitive and aggressive behaviour. It is the insight we have needed to rehabilitate and heal our species’ underlying psychosis. As the great psychoanalyst Carl Jung was fond of saying, “wholeness for humans depends on the ability to own our own shadow”.

 

Yes, at last able to understand and love the dark side of ourselves, we humans will no longer be angry, egocentric and alienated. Understanding is compassion, the truth sets us free from our psychosis. So this is the fulfilment of Anne Frank’s awesome vision that “this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return” to humankind.
