Scientifically, someone would have to be completely devoid of the ability to produce dopamine in order to be totally devoid of self-interest. Even someone like Mother Teresa gets a shot of dopamine for doing something that makes her feel good.
It's basic animal nature to be self-interested.

"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism." -Ronald Reagan
