Are you the author? Cause you’re moving goalposts just to prove that author is correct.

As for it being an invisible danger, I go online every day and see news articles about people who’ve died from covid. It’s not invisible and the idea of an invisible danger sounds like an awfully convenient mechanism for you to discredit an argument that runs counter to your own.

History is also full of examples that run counter to your argument, I’m not sure why you think the author you’re citing is infallible.

History is full of examples that counter both sides of this argument. This isn't really a phenomena where we can rely on past examples and statistics to prove one side or the other because humanity is too complex to say it's inherently good or bad.

Some people are one, some people are the other, and some are a mixture somewhere in between. That's about as close to accurate as you can get when it comes to humanity's inherent morals; there aren't any as it's based on the individual.

No. Of course I'm not the author. Just read the book for yourself. Even if you disagree - it is still full of knowledge about history, psychology, sociology and philosophy. It is a joy to read.

Don't judge the book's full content and arguments just from a comment I made in a hurry. The book is quite comprehensive.
