Should We Save Endangered Species?

Ooops I mean, societies. 
Interesting read and not really something I have thought about before. 
I can see the pros and cons of either argument.  We cannot interfere to "save" them without ruining their society, yet if we let them pass does not a small part of our collective human soul die?
What say you?
Should we save endangered cultures?

The Critics of Islam Are Right

The critics of Islam were right
We who have carelessly thrown around the Islamophobe label including Glen Greenwald, Reza Aslan, and Karen Armstrong should lower our heads in shame and guilt. Few things are as morally depraved as attacking someone who criticizes Islam (Ayaan Hirsi Ali) rather than attacking the Islamic apostasy and blasphemy laws teaching Muslims they should kill her. We must now live with the knowledge that we've abandoned and betrayed our principles. Though we claim the mantle of human rights, free speech and equality, we lack the courage of our convictions when it offends someone. We make the cowardly lion look like Churchill.

Slowly Slowly the awakening begins.....
