It all depends on whose standard you are comparing people too. Yes, by the standard that maybe we don't break the law, at least very often, not like that guy over there who shot someone or that one who ran over someone with his car, by that standard we may be good. When greybeard says humans aren't good he is going by God's standard. What is God's standard? Look at the ten commandments- broken any of them lately? How many times in the last year? month? week? And remember, Jesus Himself said hating your brother is the same (in your heart) as murdering him. Same with looking lustfully at someone for adultery. Now how do you compare to God's standard?
