A people with long history decides what makes a sacred mountain

A good read is what I consider Elson Elizaga’s piece on MindaNews about “Selling a Sacred Mountain”.

This is a situation when development comes head on with respect for people and their culture, history, and traditions.

Surely, there are varying schools of thoughts that can articulate this issue

But not a theory can probably contest the universal value of mutual respect.
