So your philosophy is - why bother? No reason to even think about being the change you want to see. Cool.
Well, yes, the most important thing is that you feel bad. Feeling bad is the mark of the righteous. It doesn't matter if you actually do things to try and make it better, as long as you feel appropriately bad.
In my experience it is easier to be altruistic if you feel good. For one thing if you feel shitty, that means it is easier for your ego to get wrapped up in your attempts to do good. If you otherwise feel good, it is easier to leave your ego at the door and not just make it about you.
