"How is that a reasonable position for a species that's supposed to care and have empathy towards other human beings?"

I think you'll find that that is a developed/learned behaviour, as opposed to what we really are by nature - an intelligent and extremely adaptable animal that got to where it is today by pursuing a programme of aggressive expansion at any cost, especially towards anything, including members of our own species, that got in the way.

The meek won't really inherit the earth and people are generally going to put their own interests ahead of some unknown's.
