Have the rich and powerful lost their altruistic instincts?

Have the rich and powerful lost their altruistic instincts?
 
Humans are the most altruistic and good of all the animal species, yet at present, our rich and powerful allow the poorest of us to starve to death by hoarding their wealth. This is unheard of in the animal world.

Generally speaking, in ancient days the rich and powerful insured that the poor were taken care of to the best of their ability.  In the past, the rank and file demanded that the rich and powerful live up to that good altruistic trait by revolting against them. The French Revolution is a good example of this. Have the rank and file lost their altruistic and good characters by allowing the rich and powerful to let people starve to death while doing nothing?
 
Are the notions of liberty, equality, and fraternity dead in the world?
 
Is mankind at the point of losing the altruistic instincts that has made us the greatest animal that the world has ever produced?

The claim that "Humans are the most altruistic and good of all the animal species" is unfounded, ignorant, and largely indefensible. Your post falls apart on your first sentence. A shame, really.

I'm sure I'm making a mistake by even wading into this discussion, but I reject the assertion that there is, or ever was, any correlation between a person being rich and a person being altruistic.

Believer: Black cats are bad luck.
Non-believer: It's just a cat.
Crackpot: Black cats are part of the New World Order government conspiracy.
Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.

Even if your entering the discussion was a mistake, your rejection of that assertion definitely wasn't. However, that doesn't mean that the ignorance will stop. It's just an unfortunate part of the reality that we live in with Gnostic here.
