Large parts of the world need to be walled off and left alone for a few 100s years.
Does that include to stop
- exploiting their natural resources, especially their oil?
- selling modern weapons to dictators?


If I for a second assume your theory of them being wild savages is correct… well, we should probably not sell them guns then, no? Quite some of the poorer parts of the world would do better if we actually left them alone...

Now it's your turn to provide examples of Arab countries whose Oil is being exploited by the west.

Oil and weapons are connected matters. If we stop paying them for oil then noble savages would have no money to buy advance weaponry. It is a problem that takes care of itself...

So where do we get oil from instead? Or should there be more research into alternative fuel sources?

It is perhaps a problem of consumption, we really don't need all that oil. All of us have everything what we would ever need right where we are.

Side note, if some of us still must fly to Indonesia for vacations or cannot survive without exotic fruits, we have ; USA - the largest producer of oil in the World , Norway is doing good, Venezuela has the largest reserves of any country and then there is Arctic oil.

Maybe a decision to not feed any trolls is in order. Yes, some are for real.

Saudi Arabia carried out a state sponsored killing of a dissident, and then dismembered his body with a bone saw. It's a country that carries out judicial corporal punishment and mass executions. Noble savages is too kind, I'd just call them savages.

How dare you call a member of the UN human rights council and the UN women's right commission "Savage" ? Are you saying the UN supports savagery ?
