How is this good?

If people are stealing from and killing one another, what right do Western capitalists have to deplore such things? For we have been teaching each other to do these very things: To take the land by force (whoever owned land before the kings and bullies, land the gift of the earth to humans?), to enslave the serfs, to invade the lands of others (think of the North American first peoples), to kill and maim and worse. We dare to hold over it all the name of a god of peace and love! To this day we expand the conquest, with soft sounding things like patents and intellectual property rights: patenting living beings, even humans. Taking our very lives. How is this good?
