At first I thought you meant "why are we on this forum," but now I think I get what you mean. I've thought this just about every day of my life, and I completely agree with you. It just doesn't seem like my/our values are compatible with those of the rest of our society. And it doesn't help that we apparently make up 1-2% of the population. Sorry, I'm not feeling particularly articulate this morning, but we live in a society where those who get to the top are those most willing to stomp on and do harm to others. If you stand up for what's right you get ridiculed.
