"Encountering the Others examines how Oligarchs utilize energy to govern control over indigenous cultures. With this growth of civilization comes unexpected behaviors and new challenges such as environmental issues, tolerance and acceptance, as well as the intrusion of strangers instilling their beliefs which they perceive to be better than others."
