That describes well how my parents taught me to think. (Maybe we're brothers, Bob!) Failure to see something good in everyone was just that: failure. Similarly with the failure to notice that everyone has weaknesses and makes some mistakes. But I have been assured by well-meaning friends that I suffer from a kind of moral blindness that hampers my ability to see things as pure black and white.
