    What is right and wrong is subjective. Always has been.

    Do I need to go on?
    We have human rights watch groups among others, such as the United Nations to make sure human beings are not "killed" in such ways.

    He wasn't saying that you were literally 9 years old... He was talking about your mentality...
    I merely pointed that out since you seemed to miss it. I was not attempting to criticize you.

    So no, I don't have a problem. Well, I continue to talk to you, I guess. That is criticism...

    I believe it's pretty much collective opinion that killing people for their gold or riches is bad. Except for a few outliers.

    So until it is 100% agreement on an issue nothing can ever be right or wrong? Is that what you are trying to say?

    Nope. Even though there were laws for thousands of years making murder illegal, there were no laws pertaining to those specific natives that made it illegal.
    That means that it was legal to kill and torture the natives. Get it now?

    That is not a Universal morality.
    And it wouldn't be wrong to the person who was doing it.
