6. Sharing knowledge should be an act of love.

I also don't necessarily have a problem with people who are "stuck in their ways" as long as they aren't hateful or controlling.

I know the article touched upon that aspect of it, but I'm referring to some negative comments that I've seen about them not sufficiently "adapting" to the almighty, capitalistic global markets.

Just like I don't care if the San Bushmen want to maintain their way of life. They'll continue going about their business like nothing happened if the Earth is struck by a huge coronal mass ejection from the Sun (which we've thankfully avoided since the electrical age), looking up at the beautiful lights in the night sky while our electronics-dependent, "civilized" society will be screwed.
