Like is happening now inhundred of countries like Africa, South America, the Middle East, or India.In the movie, the Navi successfully defend their planet from the evil colonialists who woulddestroy their planet and their civilization. The movie had a happy ending but for me I left sadknowing that in real life there are no happy endings and the same thing is going on without any 2/4
  3. 3. happy ending right now in the Middle East and in so many other places.The political and ethical message of the movie was good. Essentially the idea is that you can’tjust go in and destroy an entire community because you want to kind of natural resource theyhappen to be sitting on. That is an important message, always has always will, and it isespecially relevant given the current wars like in the Middle East.Unfortunately most people don’t realize that America is doing this, and has been for a very longtime, first with the Native Americans and with third world countries all over the world. And evenfor those that are aware of the global implications of our consumerist lifestyle viable alternativesto global capitalism are not immediately apparent, at least not in any attractive form.The movie does try to present the idea that there is another way to live, a way that is more inharmony with nature, and therefore with God. The movie does do a decent job of this but Iwould’ve liked to see more depth of philosophical insight into social issues and an attempt tooffer solution.But I guess it is only a movie and we can’t expect and it would be unfair to expect them to solvethe social problems that humanity has been struggling with since the beginning of recordedhistory.One thing I would’ve like to see, which wouldn’t have been asking too much, would’ve beenthe Navi depicted as being vegetarian. There was one scene in which they go hunting, and afterkilling the animal they offer a prayer to the great spirit, which is what I had heard that nativeAmericans always did. But here on Pandora there wouldn’t have been any need for them to killanimals as the climate was tropical and they would’ve easily had adequate food year round.Vegetarianism would’ve fit perfectly into depiction of the Navi as a race of people totally inharmony with nature. And it would’ve actually offered a tangible solution to the devastationbeing caused around the world due to the over consumption of fossil fuels.Industrialization is the number one cause of deforestation and fossil fuel consumption.It is seems like it should’ve been a no brainer to portray the Navi as vegetarians. But thatreveals the basic flaw of the movie, although it was well intentioned it fell short of providingsolutions to the all too real problems that face us due to a lack of insight into the problems.The Vedic literature provide so much information about the ideal form of human civilization andwe need to get it out there because there is such a desperate need for the knowledge.The Vedic civilization actually contains a working model, philosophically and practically as tohow humanity to can live peacefully, prosperously and happily.Thank you for your patient and tolerance.Ultimately what was missing from the movie, and from all of Western civilization and thereforeWestern philosophy is a clear idea about God and our relationship to God.Thank you for your patient and tolerance.Hunting In South Africa History best answer:Answer by Anthonyyour an idiot, america does not do this, people do this. yea the vedas are cool im going toschool to study the vedas and vedic philosophy but one thing the sages that wrote the vedaswould say about this cut litle question right ere is that maybe u should get ur head out of ur buttand not blame the civilization you live in for not being a civilization that died out thousands ofyears ago, and stop tryin to get your ideas out on yahoo answers because noone cares whatyou have to say, maybe you should right a book or something, oh and by the way its a movie, i 3/4
  4. 4. seroiusly doubt the write of it had any intention of making a big political/ethical statement. All it was was a conflict and conflict sells, maybe you should have origanl thoughts instead of working like a robot with metal rod on the top of ur head just picking up signals from the world around you about what u should do.
