I believe that some sense of morality is natural to humanity and later it’s further developed by society standards. Based on the article we had to read it would be a logical conclusion since according to the studies described in it, even sociopaths understand what is right and wrong. I’m not entirely sure what the movie contributes to the question at hand “is morality natural” as it just make us face a moral dillema that soldiers have to face, meaning we can’t say if they were moral as kids or not. I’d say a video we’ve seen in one of our lectures about how babies between (I believe) 1-3 years old showed signs of realising that certain behaviours are bad and should be frowned upon and others should be prised.
