Comment Re:Profit from language? (Score 1) 472

Your parents likely didn't speak latin or greek either. These people speak the language today. Many speak spanish as well, but I feel the issue here is that Microsoft and the Chilean government's interpretation of their language could easily fall short, and including the Mapuche people in the process wold have been much more considerate.

I feel that using the word 'barbaric' is merely a way of demeaning another way of living. It's entirely possible that people from other cultures may view your way of life as barbaric. Money, urban development, social separatism, and a disconnection from nature must be shocking to those who live in cooperative, sustainable communities in harmony with the earth.
