And the alternative to Western Civilization is what? FREE STUFF?

Not free stuff, rather, buying things on a collective level. Much like a married couple share an income, but you wouldn’t say one is stealing from the other. They have combined their finances and now make more than the sum of their individual parts. A mixed economy is one where some things are bought collectively (like infrastructure and healthcare) and others are bought individually (like toothbrushes).
