The world’s least remote family

The picture above comes with the story that follows: The world’s most remote family live hundreds of miles from civilisation.

The level of ignorance reaches a pitch of inanity I have seldom come across before. This family lives entirely embedded within our civilisation and whether they or those who read about them understand or not, they are representatives of our civilisation and could be members of no other. I have little sympathy with the grievance industry here in Canada or elsewhere who seem to think that were it not for the handful of Europeans who showed up in Canada at the start of the seventeenth century, they could still be happily paddling their birchbark canoes through their pine forest canopies in splendid isolation from the technological developments that have overtaken the entire world during the past 400 years.
