Why not let nature take it's course? I do not know if any of you here watch Star Trek "The next generation", but if you do, you will know what I mean when I state the "prime derective". The prime derective was a rule set in place by the star trek enterprise, that they would not interphere with any culture, even if they deem it unfit, and inhumane. Ofcourse the purpose of this rule, is to allow nature to evolve in it's own way, irregardless of the outcome.
That being said, I feel that continous bickering on one culture's movement on another is useless. Nature is going to take it's course irregardless of what we do, say, or think. Even in the animal kingdom, what we see as barbaric, is nature's way of working things out.
Are not Semis a part of nature? Therefore their behavior and culture is as every bit NATURAL to this planet as the ressesive nature of Maat. Nature deals in balance. If their is a Matriarchy, then there must be a Patriarchy. That is just common sence. Anything that happens on this planet is natural. Why...because it is either perputrated by humanity, or the natural elements. Anything done on this planet is an act of nature.
Even your fighting against it is natural. It all ties in. The same way you see faminie killing millions of Africans, as a bad thing, is the same way you see semis moving in and killing your culture. Once you realize that nature, and natural thought spurns these rythms in the universe, the sooner you will be better able to cope with mother nature.
