Medical, healthcare, education and protection
so was the guy going to their island just to tell them that god loves them (which, they probably didn't understand what he was saying) bringing
healthcare, education (outside of education about how they need HIS god), or protection???
Didnt you say these people are already being exploited
no, it's you with the reading comprehension problem. I was describing what has happened on a nearby island that has been opened for some developement
and how it has affected a different tribe (although it has similarities to the Sentinelese as far as them being pretty much isolated for most of
history, arrived at the islands about the same time, and lived in about the same primitive state.) It's the jarawa tribe that is being exploited,
they don't even live on the same island!!!
the law that says to stay away from the Sentinelese is there to protect them. My guess is is that if they ever need medical care, it will be because
some idiot decided to ignored that ban and manages to pass the wrong germ to the people. And, while was are talking about healthcare, do you have any
idea just how many medications have come from the amazonian herbal folk medicine?
On what basis, outside of your own arrogance and possibly dollar signs if you are a land developer, do you base the idea that our way of life is so
much better that we should force these people to join into it?
They occasionally kill the outsiders? How many native americans did we kill off, through our diseases and with our guns? oh ya, we "educated" the
natives. have you ever met anyone who was taught by those kind nuns?? I have a friend who was, the nuns didn't sound that kind and she really
didn't feel that we were doing her a favor.
