I agree whole with my whole heart. Our drive to imperialism of the oldest cultures in the world have cause real damage. The realization that our influence comes with strings attached is what causes the resentments that are the makings of war. The facts stand up when you look at them. You can not help where it is not wanted or requested. Sure our culture is bound to the seven missions of mercy but that is but a kind myth to deal with the guilt of knowing we think we have the answers. If those people lived for thousands of years they will find a way to keep going without our help. If they ask we should do just what they ask and nothing more. I could go on about the wells we built so the natives could have water but we never gave them parts or the training to repair them now they just rust away. Technology may not be the gift we think it is.
