Amazonian Tribe Makes First Contact With Outside World In Utterly Fascinating Video


The video shows indigenous people from the Panoan linguistic group carrying bows and wearing loin clothes making contact with the Ashaninka native people of northern Brazil along the banks of the Envira River, near the Peruvian border.

In one scene, an ethnic Ashaninka in athletic shorts gives bananas to two loincloth-clad natives who appear wary of approaching, quickly grabbing the fruit and then retreating out of arm's reach. 

Brazilian experts said the indigenous people likely crossed the border from Peru facing pressure from illegal logging and drug trafficking at home.

After the native people made initial contact with the Ashaninka on June 26, a team from Brazil's National Indian Foundation (FUNAI) traveled to the area and filmed a second encounter on June 30, according to news portal G1.

And so begins their loss of freedom. They lose their freedom because they take a benefit, but don't perceive that they actually are giving a much larger benefit in return. They don't see that the benefit that they are giving is future slave labor to governments.

If someone gives you a gift, don't you feel a bit obligated to give him a gift in return? These people feel it way down deep. They don't realize that they have given a gift simply by being videoed... simply by their existence. So, sometime in the future, they will feel obligated. But if they don't, some Government thief will make them feel that they owe something in return.

It's the same with us. We have loads of luxury in life. We have cars and houses that we didn't build. And Government tricks us into thinking that it was they who gave these things to us, and we owe something in return, taxes.

Well, it wasn't Government who gave these things to us. Probably our luxuries and enjoyments would even be greater without Government. In fact, because we are being forced to pay taxes, we are the ones giving a benefit to Government. Yet they offer us nothing in return, nothing that you can put your finger on, that is.

Oh, they tell us they protect us from foreign nations. And they give us roads, and schools, and medical, and all kinds of things. But it can't be shown FOR A FACT that we have these things because of Government. And it looks like Government people are receiving way more. Just look at the far greater luxuries they clothe themselves with at our expense. ISN'T IT ABOUT TIME THAT WE START RECEIVING PAYMENT IN RETURN FROM GOVERNMENT? Or better yet, isn't it time that they stop taking our property from us without giving something in return that you can REALLY SEE comes from them?

These poor people in the video. If they would only know to flee, to turn their backs and run, so that they and their whole little group don't get screwed by the same things that screw us in our lives... Government and taxes.
