|A Pace Odyssey
Across the planet there are several tribes of indigenous people who have never contacted the outside world. These natives have no understanding of the rest of humanity’s accomplishments and do not know that society as a whole has progressed into the future. With deforestation, rising populations, and continual exploration, our world is increasingly getting closer to theirs. With this, many of the accepting tribes become educated, welcome much needed supplies, receive vaccines, and gain the ability of choosing a new, potentially better, life. On the other side of these encounters is death from both attacks and the transfer of disease. Often times the passing of disease only hurts the tribes, who have never built up an immunity, while dramatically reducing their numbers. Humanity has always chose to avoid these tribes, but it has become clear that this is now nearly impossible. While taking these two immense options into consideration, modern society must choose which choice benefits both of us. Whether we want to try help the ones who have survived just as long as us, or try to improve their lives by welcoming them into our world, it all comes down to this question: should we interfere with the uncontacted tribes of our world?
