Picard would have been arguing that the volcano was "meant" to destroy that civilization or some similar nonsense.
That's typical of written characters _and_ real-life people, though: changing a "will" into an "ought".

But I'd like Picard to explain to me how letting an entire civilisation die off forever is better than allowing them a chance to reach the stars one day, if the price to pay is them seeing some magical technology.
And that's my opinion.
