Why are people always blaming the present countries for their history that happened centuries ago?

Like for example, Europe colonizing americas, people blame them because they killed many in the invasion and slaved people. My response is because they are capable of it back in the day and because it is the norm. If the mayans are the super power back then, then surely they will also try to invade the world. And even them fought with their neighboring countries and invade them. And slave people too.. humans did not even own a land at the beginning, they just fought for it with blood. Can we not just be happy that we are living in peaceful times So none of it will happen again? Is my reasoning correct or not?

    It's psychological. People sare always looking for scapegoats for their unhappiness and problems instead of facing reality and dealing with it.
