That's a really good question that keeps coming up. The Hive's entire philosophy is that one proves their worth and superiority through conflict and that the one left standing is the one who deserves to exist.

What have we done as Guardians so far that is any different than what the Hive are doing?

Mostly our Guardians have streamed out from Earth and killed anything that isn't us. And grown dramatically in power as we have done so. We have shown very little compassion or understanding or willingness to find a peaceful solution to our various conflicts. If the Traveler and the Sky is all about creating safe places for life to flurish... where exactly have us Guardians done that?

About the only altruistic things we've done that I can think of is the time we entered the Vault of Glass to save the Vex from Oryx's Taken power. And even then, Praedyth warned us that the Vex won't thank us for our actions.
