Do you do the work experience and volunteer work because you want to... I guess so - but is that to make yourself feel good about doing it??
Spoiler:

I know, I saw this coming...
I won't lie I like doing it so yes it makes me feel good.
Do you think that there's ever something that's a selfless act?

There is no such thing as a truly selfless act, I've written essays on that too.

Why? I do acknowledge that humans are innately self-centred and really human nature is a vile thing.

Where does this apparent need to specify human nature come from?

Wow, ok!!!
But the thing is we came together in groups as social animals because we are better as a collective. And we do have the ability to empathise which isn't a self-serving emotion. In fact empathy is seen as one of the biggest signs of intelligence in animals and often comes with self awareness and religion. So the chanses are all the animals we know are self-aware actually have their own religions. Anyway I've become side tracked...

I think we should fight human nature not just accept it.

You. Think. Animals. Have. Religion.???

Well, in that case, in their eyes, I'm a psychopath.

Friends the tv show not my actual friends, haha. There's a bit where Phoebe tries to perform a selfless act by letting a bee sting her "to make it look cool in front of his bee friends."

In the balance of probably I believe that all self-aware animals have religion, we know that religion came in to humans when we became self-aware and I believe that religion is a natural part of evolution. Thus dolphins, whales, octopi, corvids, elephants and the great apes all have religion.

Well, you declare human nature specifically to be vile, as if we are the only things in existence that exhibit the properties you claim we do that make us vile.

We call ourselves educated right? We say we are evolved and yet at our core we are still tribal. We are no better then animals at all yet we claim to be.

I'd argue we are still superior to other animals. I dont see Elephants building rockets, for example. But we are still animals in the end.
