There are some scientific ideas of what is human nature as in '6 things we all do' https://www.newscientist.com/round-up/human-nature/
But I agree that generally it is used as an excuse to do what you want, or do nothing.

Same with 'it is the way of the world'. No, it is the way we make the world.

To be true, we are group animals and influence each other, but we are also individuals and can think for ourselves. If we choose.
