People are generally evil

Yes. This is true. People are generally inclined to do wickedness and evil. Let's take a look at what Torah says:
YLT Gn 8:21 and Yahuah smelleth the sweet fragrance, and Yahuah saith unto His heart,  'I continue not to disesteem any more the ground because of man, though the imagination of the heart of man is evil from his youth; and I continue not to smite any more all living, as I have done;
As you can see, God Himself gives humans characterization. God says that our heart is evil from our youth. Can we control our evil inclinations? Yes - see Genesis 4:7. But it is a LIFETIME PROCESS. One has to be always aware of this evil inclination, or this "rat" that lives inside each and every one of us and we must constantly keep this evil inclination at bay so it does not get out and harm someone. 

This brings me to my second argument why people are generally evil...It is the sin atonement system that was immortalized in the Torah. Many of the sin offerings mentioned in the Torah are called "chukat olam" (eternal commandments), which means that even after the whole world will come to serve One God and live by the Torah, there still going to be sin. We will be subjected to this evil inclination FOREVER! So we must also be prepared to fight it forever!

According to the Torah all can sin, even the best of us. Leviticus 4:3 says that even Anointed Messiah himself can sin, meaning that even a Anointed High Priest could make a mistake. Princes of the tribes also mentioned in Leviticus 4:22. Even the majority can sin as I have discussed in my previous posts and as Torah tells us in Numbers 15:22-26. 

So as you can see, the sin is a natural phenomenon that is always present and we must be always on guard to not let it get out and overtake us.

As a side note I want to point out that personal appearance and impression is not an indication of righteousness. The person may look and act as a saint but have a rotten core at his soul. For example, those who call themselves "rabbis" are very evil people. They make good personal and social impression but this nothing but a disguise to feed you their agenda that has very little to do with the Torah. This can also be deduced from the Prophet's Test, which also tell us to watch out for compliance with the Torah and nothing but the Torah! So the prophet may do the signs or wonders but he still may have an intention to lead you away from the Torah. So watch out for this as well.
