Amazon Tribeswomen Escape Back to Forest After Rejecting Civilization

Two women from a "non-contacted" Amazonian tribe contracted tuberculosis while living in a village. After treatment and recovery, the women wanted only to return to the forest, which, sadly, is threatened by loggers.

They had the right idea. Our corrupt and destructive excuse for civilization is in desperate need of overhaul and reform.

Better to be closer to nature, than be part of the concrete jungle.

If all of us should live like we do in "Civilized" countries, we would need 4 planets Mother Earth... I say no more...

Are we ever going to stop encroaching on these lands and disturbing the uncontacted tribes? It seems like we are going to keep doing this until there are no people left who are living a healthy and sane life, free of all the ills of what we call civilization.

Judy stated it all very well in her above comment. Yes, there are so few areas left on this planet free of the harmful intrusions of Corporations and profiteers. We must keep 'sacred lands' untouched.

Many Thanks for this posting Judy!! Who could blame them--I so agree, it's high time these tribes were shown RESPECT and be left alone, to live their lives in peace. "Sacred Lands" are to be exactly that ="SACRED"~~~ If only our society could return to some good basic values and live some of the healthy "Normalcy" they thrive on.~
