This is even more troubling, for a variety of reasons, IMHO.
Is it so hard to believe that people do what is best for THEM then what is right?
Lets just suppose that Jesus was who he was, look what happened to Him:
Even after all he did and all he helped, healed and saved, he was killed and abandonded by the very people he was with.
Human nature can suck at times, this we know.
The HS speaks to us and guides us to what is right and just, but it is up to us to follow or at least listen.
I don't have any issues with it being the way it is because the alternative ( no HS or a dictator God) is far worse.
