There is no right or wrong, only right and wrong. We have a binary perception of a dualistic reality. People who have a desire to prove they are good will find evil where none exists. That's because good can't exist in a vacuum. The problem humanity faces is that people live in denial of their shadow. The motivation to be good comes from the subconscious fear that you are not. It is why people hold on to beilef no matter the evidence. To go against is to admit to inadequacy. To face your shadow is to acknowledge the potential for destruction within yourself. Only then can you perceive your own bias and blind spots. Most people cannot comprehend the notion of having the potential to be worse than Hitler, yet that potential is within all of us. Unfortunately the the process of shadow integration is torture, for it can only be accomplished through the shattering of your ego.
People in the developed world are often naive that people in other parts of the world can have other attitudes and legitimately so. Not all of them are like that but I have encountered few too many like yourself. One would think that curiosity would guide people to get to know other parts of the world. But No! Prejudice is far more potent. And intoxicating perhaps.
