  1. I'll tell you what I think.
    Self-sacrifice, or altruism, means a person's unselfish motives, which entail actions for the benefit of other people and sometimes to the detriment of oneself.
    Human nature, in my opinion, could not have changed since the time of Auguste Comte, the sociologist who introduced the concept of altruism. There is something good in every person, as well as something bad. This internal struggle is what distinguishes us from non-sentient beings.
    What I'm driving at-there will always be people,going over their heads for their own sake, there will also always be people who will share the last piece of bread with a stranger .

    The hunchback-traitor from the “300 Spartans” and Prometheus “who gave fire to people” no one came up with. It's all from our lives.

  2. Both the past and the future.�

    Human evolution passes stage by stage from less organized societies to more organized ones. Family, tribe, nation, multinational society. This will continue to happen. This is due to the nature of the tasks facing people. The greater the complexity of the task, the more resources you need to develop to solve it. Organized labor in such cases is many times more effective than isolated attempts. The very logic of progress works to unite people into more and more complex organized structures (cultural, economic, political, etc.), therefore, in the future, the concept of the interests of society, of a single humanity, as opposed to the interests of an individual will be increasingly strengthened. However, ideally these concepts coincide. At the very least, the interests of society coincide with the interests of the majority of people in this society. Under such conditions, the return of the idea of self-sacrifice of a person for the benefit of all mankind or a part of it (for example, his city, his country, his distant descendants) and the flourishing of this idea is the most likely scenario.
