The ‘Old Adam’…what to do with him?

Most of us agree that this scoundrel the ‘old Adam’, or ‘old Eve’, needs to be dealt with in some fashion or other.

What should we do with him/her?

Should we work to clean him up? Should we try and improve how she acts in public and smooth off  her sharp edges?

Should we forget about him, ignore him, and hope he won’t cause too much trouble?

Or should we kill her/him off?   If so, then how?
