Pros And Cons Of Seeking Out Uncontacted Peoples

The recent death of a U.S. missionary trying to visit an isolated group living on a remote Indian island reignited debate over whether uncontacted peoples should be integrated into the rest of the world or left alone. The Onion breaks down the pros and cons of seeking out uncontacted peoples.


PRO

Huge new market for pharmaceuticals.

Getting killed trying to preach the Gospel sure ticket to Heaven.

They’re probably sitting on top of some valuable untapped natural resources.

If we don’t get to live in an isolated island paradise, no one does.


CON

Not fair to drag them into all of our shit.

Already enough languages to learn.

Dollar pretty weak against seashells right now.

Don’t need any more Christians.
