If this answer seems too abrupt,this one(thermlin),observes merely that the
'indigenous native' has been fighting this tide for the last 400 odd years and will ,in all probability, continue to do so into the forseeable future.
If nothing else,'he' has shown remarkable
resilience.Even now,the nations flourish.
How can they do otherwise?
However true this may be, many indigenous in the Americas are abandoning their lands and merging into the dominant society. Furthermore, many other groups which espoused to traditional values are abandoning those values. Make no mistake, I don't disagree with all the principals of western society, but the western model of life is so tremendously inefficient. A life based on consumption and no introspection is not worth living at all.
