I am always surprised that many think you (researchers) have no right to meddle with local’s beliefs and way of life.

When I lived in rural Russia I have seen first hand the damage caused by all manner of ridiculous beliefs. Many won’t confront them because they might cause offence or a fight, but that’s the only way to drag them out of the dark ages.

Educating communities you work with must be taking so much of your time, and I don’t understand why so many ‘westerners’ are unsupportive of your efforts.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
