Understanding the 10 Most Destructive Human Behaviors
Source: Live Science

Self-destruction
Compared with most animals, we humans engage in a host of behaviors that are destructive to our own kind and to ourselves. We lie, cheat and steal, carve ornamentations into our own bodies, stress out and kill ourselves, and of course kill others. Science has provided much insight into why an intelligent species seems so nasty, spiteful, self-destructive and hurtful.

If one can understand the "HUKAMu" as envisaged in SGGS ,Then one should be able to understand any human behaviour .

I wish it was that easy!
We can't explain how hukam dictates the rapists and paedophiles ..etc..
We have free will that governs this behaviour, but hukam still overules all of that as free will itself falls under the umbrella of 'hukam'.

Therefore we can't blame 'hukam' for terrible acts commited by self-will.

The FREE WILL is a great obstruction in understanding the "HUKAMu".
And Due to the influence of Free Will it is not that easy to recognise
"HUKAMu".
That is why the recognising of HUKAMu is subject to IF.

Let us try to understand what does this Quote from Jap Ji Sahib means
"HUKAME ANDER SAB KO BAHAR HUKAM NAHi KOEE "

Sikhi is all about understanding oneself rather others for their behaviour.
From Gurbanee one should learn this from a Quote as
"Manda Jane Aapko Aur Bhalaa Saisaara" or
"Hum Nahi Change Bura Nahee Koe ,Pranwat Nanak Tare Soe"

I think understanding the behaviour of other Human is against Basic principls of
Sikhi.
