Our Goal to Extinction [Indigenous People]

Blog History Human Rights

Societies and governments have achieved many wondrous feats, but for all its declared successes for mankind, have we moved a step of two closer to extinction? Have we truly moved away from on hatred and violence or have we made them the civilised virtue of the human species?

Genocide is the negation of humanity. Confrontation may be unavoidable sometimes, but does it warrant the violence and rampage of destruction? Genocide is terrible to contemplate, yet we remove ourselves from the obvious violence against indigenous people. Nowadays the killing fields are done in meeting rooms, amongst politicians and corporations. The deliberate and persistent propagation of hatred and greed is justified by plans for development, which gradually becomes the normal yet perverted habits of the society. Indigenous people living in suppressed conditions face a world filled with prejudice and stigma, from the Amazon jungles to Botswana, then from Tibet to West Papua. Discrimination and violence is fuelled by your ignorance, and your apathy. Oh yes, we are truly, and completely fucked.

It is harmful to be guided by apathy, for they limit and twist the soul and prevent it from perceiving truth. The truth that the sheer survival of indigenous people and their identity is spiralling in the piss-pot of your indecisiveness. The truth that civilisation, yours and mine, is merely the vile offspring of barbarism and butchery.

Welcome to Extinction.
