Survivor would be a great way to bring these people into our realm. They can see how similar we are to them and feel less threatened by our soul snatching devices with tiny colorful stars and shiny silver things.
They have a right to know about us, we do not have the right to push ourselves on them. They have lived this way for 10,000 years or so (not THIS specific tribe maybe) and while not set to overpopulate the Earth, are thriving. It is our duty then to protect them until such a time comes when a) they wish to know us and b) we can safely interact with them without harming them and their way of life.
Anything else is absurd and frankly - in my opinion - wrong.
Zach, you`re right when you say they have the right to know about modern technology, but they also have the right to reject it. When anthropologists first "discover" and uncontacted tribe they attempt to make contact. If the tribe rejects the contact, they may try a few more times, but ultimately respect the wishes of the tribe by leaving them alone.
And Aeladil, to say that those tribes know we`re he is a half truth at best. They know something is here, but since uncontacted tribes have not, by definition, been contacted, they really don`t know what is out here. As a civilized world, we have the duty to offer the wonders of our technology to these people, and we have to duty to leave them alone if they wish.
Just goes to show you that even environmentalists do this. And even though it was for a good cause, it by no means makes it any less wrong.
Not to mention that there has never been a time in history where encroaching on undisturbed tribes DIDN`T lead to disease outbreak, war, death, etc. It is -not- a good idea to try and integrate people like this into our society. It never - ever - works.
They know we`re here. We know they`re there. If they want anything to do with us - let them come to us. We`ve no right forcing them otherwise.
If that makes me a hippy bitch, so be it. I`d rather be a hippy bitch than a flunkie like yourself.
Screw whether or not they overstepped their bounds by calling the tribe "lost." This is still an amazing story and truly amazing photographs.
When I read the title of this post I thought the photos were staged or something. If anything was overstated, it was the title of this article.
Either way - the fact remains, there are still uncontacted tribes on the Earth that need to be protected. Whether this was truly a `never before seen` group or not matters little to me. The fact that there are still people like them, living the way they have for thousands of years, is amazing and we have a duty to keep them that way.
Yes, we were discussing it.
