Even by capitalist standards defending landlords is questionable:
If the Indians did owned the land, they were rich ultra-reactionary pigs and were deservedly expropriated by poor workers and peasants. Remember, the property belongs to those who need it.
If the Indians did not owned the land, then there was no theft.
“The interest of the landlords is always opposed to the interest of every other class in the community.”—David Ricardo
