I think most humans have a desire to do good for others and themselves.
We've come a long way but we have a long way to go and it is all stupidity born of ignoance.

Human's are self-driven. We do what benefits us- always have. The only exception is masochists but even then they ENJOY being harmed. An innate sense of "good" in people I think greatly depends on your definition of good. Many people commit evil acts under the impression that what they are doing is for the greater good. Also, must it be altruistic? Can a person be good if the act was kind but selfishly motivated?
ya i believe in..
Goodness is a value judgement. Spartans believed they did good by killing children they believed weak. It is observable that human beings are capable of believing they are doing good even or especially when killing other humans. In war for example there is a suspension of critical thought in favour of the war effort and the greater good of victory takes over.<br />
Optimisim is not a delusion.
