Senseless expansion is slow genocide.

Why is this tribe person wearing a jean skirt? Some times I wonder about the compulsion to protect "lost" tribes. I guess I understand the reasoning, but who really wants this protection? For thousands of years humans have discovered one another and interacted and integrated in a new society, but now we wish to keep some of us like animals in a natural zoo. True, the integration of these tribes has been for the most part a disaster with the tribal people getting the worst of it. But is it really wise to try to keep them "pure?" I just don't know.

Why must we open all the secret and wild places to invasion. These people are happy with out our interferance and should not have to try to endure this.

Once again "progress" is going to do much more harm than good.

If rainforests are the lungs of the planet what happens when the planet can't breathe?
