We, in this “civilization”, need to keep in mind that our laws are not universal.

What we call corruption is what our capitalist system calls the profit motive, perfectly legally.

No, it isn’t. The key difference here is that there is a system of laws that enforces property matters such as depicted in that article. The builder who tried to lead an armed band against land-use regulators in the US would find himself in prison and his band dispersed by the police. In Afghanistan, the builders threaten force as a matter of routine and between them they have enough armed men to do the police major damage. Moreover, the idea of the ‘rule of law’ enjoys broad respect here, not so if Afghanistan.
