The short story Good Country People offers a valuable insight into the human nature. This story offers a good life lesson; People cannot be trusted. This may seem like a negative way to look at life, but that does not make it the wrong view. While Pointer seems to be a disturbed man in his collections he reveals that even people who seem that they are good cannot always be trusted. I'm sure most people one point or another in their life have been betrayed by someone who they thought was an good, honest person. This just goes to show that deep down humans generally only look out for themselves and are self-centered.
I would imagine that after reading my thoughts some people are going to be offended and probably angry. I would like to know how people feel about this subject.
