People write horrible things on the internet but what i think is becoming more and more apparent is A LOT of people write horrible things on the internet. Good people write them bad people write them old people write them children write them.
Do you think the internet encourages negativity or do you think this really what people are thinking all along and that we have an anger/cruelty problem among the human race at least in people's thoughts if not their outward actions?

No. Actually the internet is the direct opposite; most people are more willing to disassociate themselves from their thoughts and emotions over the internet than anything.
Negativity is not the problem but the disassociation. I can hope you die in a fire (and I do) with the worst penalty being something getting deleted or this account being deactivated. In real life however, even if I disliked you, I would not feel as such towards you.
Because here you are nothing more than a block of words or random images. In real life you have dreams, hopes, aspirations, feelings, etc.0
