    Culture has more to do with it than most people realize. In fact, the biggest reason we ask these kinds of question is because the majority of us were born in a country where the culture taught us that certain things are important and good and communism or fascism does not contain those things. If we were born in some Viking village in the year 600, we would be concerned with completely different things and these kinds of questions would never be considered.

    Exactly, we'd be prioritizing loot and women.

    And what would you consider a good reason to invade and eternally occupy a country?
