Western intelligence, progress, and "civilization" always creates destruction, laziness, complacency, inequity, chaos, and death.
As one member mentioned, this intelligence is perfect for wasting not only natural resources but also making human life commodities on the road to progress. Quite a savage way to exist in my opinion.
These "savages" choose to live a life that is respectful to the earth and all its inhabitants.
They inherently have the intelligence of knowing that they are a part of this earth, this cycle of life, and respect their place in it. We humans are of the animals but unlike the animals in a very specific way. We are not born with the conscious knowledge of what food we can eat and not be poisoned or the knowledge of what our shelters are made from or how to make them. The entire animal kingdom has us beat in this regard. Indigenous people all over the planet know this and respect it. They revere nature and plants and animals as gifts and brethren.
