    Sometimes, there are good reasons for Eurocentrism. I don't think this is one of those cases.

    I get what Yeekim means, Israel was the "big drain" on jews from Europe and the Middle East. I think they escalated confrontation with the arabs sometimes just to get more immigrants... And the post-USSR block during its hard economic crisis had many move into Israel. With sad consequences in the policies of the country!

    I hope they can safely be brought into contact with the rest of the world someday. They probably have very low life expectancy.

    In the 18th century there were approx 7000 indigenous Andamanese. Now there are an estimated 400-450 out of 180,000 people on the islands. Many are dependent on government handouts. Don't think they've benefited much so far.

    Old men do the telling, young men do the dying. God's will.

    I feel like I'll find a use for the phrase "hell-based ethics".

    I don’t see how civilization could be brought to these people without forcing it on them, which would be a violation.

    Their hostility to outsiders and communication issues would interfere too much.
