Are we GOD/GODs?
A: Technically YES & NO. and practically NO.(not me saying)
Detailed: We are Atman inside the body which made of the Five Elements are Earth, Ether, Fire, Water & Sky.So, Atman's are parts of Param-Atman. God himself is Param-Atman and we are his parts. Like droplets of an Ocean or Sky where they both are infinite. God lives within us, we are not GOD/GODs. There is a life full of difference between GOD and man.
Q: If we are God, then why are we, the human race, so corrupt, violent and confused?
A: We are not GODs. We are humans(Our Source is Manu the first Self-Create man by the grace of one of the Trimurti Lord Brahma. We humans are great by the way, we have limited time to live in here. We love we cherish we fight we die. We are blessed by the Gods for numerous reasons. But we have got our dark sides, we all do karma, some stands as good and some bad because of ignorance of bodily believes, because of we believe we are this body. And find ourself in karma Bandhan where in reality we are are parts of Param-Atman and we will unite again, which later extends our time in this earth. We fail we learn and the end of Purpose in Creation.
There is a lot of sacred texts explaining why we have darkness. But also, we were cursed by severals that humans will carry Asura Nature and fight-kill to death even for a piece of bread.
later questions can merge with the first one.
I suggest you read the Holy Srimad Bhagabat Gita,which contains the
Divya-Gyan(Divine Knowledge) of Atman & Param-Atman & sacred
more, Which Bhagwan Sri Krishna himself (read Param-Atman Himself)
gave knowledge to Arjuna in the Greatest Epic of Mahabharata.
last Q: If we are God, why do we have to obtain moksha? If we are God, we should be moksha all the way, all the time.
A: Atman can only learn consciousness while staying in the human body, but our karma Bandhan makes relation with this material world and material matters. We get lost in luxury and comfort that we deny seeing the pain we are causing to others. The real karma is that "which is done for the wellness of Srishti (Creation). Not only for mankind for all creatures, nature, and related everything comes with it.
There is a purpose of all Atmans, once it is done the Atman will merge with Param-Atman. But we all are in between, our story starts with season 1 episode 1 or pilot and ends with the end of our Purpose. And there is a lot to understand in this very complex and easy knowledge of the Creation.
Holy Gita, Hold Veda's, Holy Purans and Sanatan Dharma(what Hinduism in real) researchers scripts are your paths to knowing the void.
