Here, We see the Akha people facing the same ends in
The old are not happy but the young are happy in that they can now function outside their group and have better incentives offered to them.
The old Akha people say they are losing their young because they are being offered opium to leave the tribe
but the Christian groups in
With civilization comes pollution. You cannot eat or fish or gather as before. Progress changes life from all directions.
In order to survive one needs to be able to adapt, to learn, to grow and to understand.
Some areas on the planet do not like change and we are always questioning whether it is right to interfere and
force them to change their ways but in the end, these tribes will not have a choice anyway.
No matter what we do on this planet, we have to understand that there was a beginning and one day there will be an end.
If man is to survive as a species, he has to grow and learn at a tremendous rate so he can do things we only dream about today.
If politics and wars interfere in this progress then we doom ourselves as a people of the human race.
There are no winners in war.
So opportunities people receive in cities of the civilized world, should also be available to tribal people so they also have an opportunity to document their culture and ways for future generations. Its important to know your roots and who you are.
Otherwise, all will die along with the past.
So in as much as I love studying and learning cultures, I also see the benefit of moving on
because to not move on, could result in total annihilation of a species called man.
I also believe in the importance of being self sufficient.
People should not depend on systems as much as on themselves.
Systems are to promote self sufficiency, jobs, creativity, enlightenment and mankind has to help
mankind in achieving this for himself.If the system stops helping man and instead helps only itself,
then the system is not working
the way it should.
We see in
A good system would replant what it destroyed continuing to provide jobs and a future to the people.
If the system does not do this then what use is it to the people? It is there only to help itself.
