Idealism or realism?

Sure we all want to believe we can all change for the better and that everyone can have a heart and help each other out. But the realism is that we haven't changed the way we act since the dawn of man. We are all in college not for the benefit of society but so we can work jobs we are interested in, make enough money to live comfortably. None of us want to work at McD's the rest of our lives. Our actions are determined by self interest. Man by nature is greedy, if it were possible to change than maybe communism would have worked but as we can see, it didn't do so hot. If we want people to change there has to be something in it for them, and for most people that something has to be have real value, not emotional value. We need to appeal to self-interest to breed motivation. Instill morality behind the movement so that it sustains itself into the future. To think we can get the world to change on morals than we are just hurting our own progress, people living paycheck to paycheck in an old beaten down apartment in a nowhere end of town don't care about the beauty of the woods and what might happen if we cut them down, they care about their next meal and if they can live through a medical bill. Appeal to man's innate being and plant a seed to grow into the morality of our minds.
