From Clyde Dinkins:

Re: Almost “uncontacted” tribe revealed (May 30): Unfortunately, these and other such tribes are on their way to extinction. It’s a lost cause. The governments, developers, loggers et. al. want their land and by hook or crook. One disease put in their community could wipe them out.

One must wonder why they didn’t develop technology-modern-wise etc. ? To the Utopians who praise their simple life, etc. I say: But, they’re vulnerable and should modern societies decide to enslave them, exterminate them, take their land, etc. there’s nothing they could/ can do to stop it, which is exactly what’s happening to them. Humankind’s inhumanity to humankind yet exists. And ‘Aspectual Darwinism’ is a reality we all face.
