THe Beast Within Us?

"Maybe there is a beast… maybe it's only us."

September 14, 1953: On this day, William Golding submitted Strangers from Within to a publisher. The manuscript was rejected, but a month later a young editor picked it up from the reject pile. With some work and a new title—The Lord of the Flies—Golding's novel was published in 1954.

Perhaps it's true?  Man certainly can make a mess of things.... How simple to turn this first!
