When I read this article I couldn't help but think of discussions on this board about Western influence on fundamental Islam.
At what point do you let a culture be.
When is it right to say "your way of life isn't as good as our way"?
Letting the pygmies sleep outside in the cold when warm beds were available seemed inhuman and caused public outcry.
However, when there is an outcry to stop the oppression of women for example, it is argued that it is a cultural thing and should be left alone.
I guess what I asking is ...when should one culture intervene and perceivably "help" another culture in the name of humanity.
Or in other terms ... should the pygmies have been left outside?
