Outsiders like Nobel misinterpret the dysfunction of the lonely Inuit community in response to the modernizing world as the strangeness of their culture.
This shows how the Inuits are getting alienated from their own traditions over time. Despite its loneliness, the Inuit community has not been left unaffected by globalization. Nobel did not find adventure where one would expect to. Globalization has increased the dependency of Lonely Places, destroying their self-sufficiency, harming their ability to continue on their own.
Reliance on external factors harms them both economically and culturally. Nobel hints at an idea to counter the vulnerability of Lonely Places: promoting traditional practices through tourism with specific needs of each Lonely Place instead of a laissez-faire globalization that threatens cultural resilience.
Therefore, there are ramifications to the inability of Lonely Places to comprehend their own loneliness. It makes them vulnerable to intervention by the majority:. Tourism facilitates growth in a way that strengthens cultural resilience. The vulnerability of a Lonely Place will decrease if its inhabitants are consciously involved and considered in any change by foreign intervention.
The impact of multiculture on cultural resilience is indefinite. It may or may not promote preservation of minority cultures depending on how it settles in with the Lonely Place.
This brings up the question of whether the loneliness of the Inuit community will decrease with the homogenization of its culture or increase with the external disruption of its traditions. Is destroying minority cultures and traditions the only way to eliminate their loneliness?
