Buried Bones Unearth Debate
A group of college students on a camping trip to the outskirts of NATIONSNAME stumbled across an ancient mass grave site. The proper treatment of the remains has become a hot button issue, as various groups have staked their claims.
I’ve encountered with 4 choices
1. “These bones belonged to our ancestors! Or, at least we called dibs first!” shouts Dana Kelly, a representative of the Violetstone tribe, close enough that you can feel the spittle flying from her lips. “How would you like it if we poked and prodded the remains of your ancestors? We deserve – no we have the right – to take these bones back to our land and ceremonially burn them as our cultural heritage dictates.”
2.“You can’t seriously consider giving up such valuable information, can you?” gasps Hugo Rhodes, a Professor of Anthropology at CAPITAL University. “The information from these remains is invaluable. This is a rare opportunity to learn about ancient CITIZEN culture and where we came from. Let us put these bones to the test, so to speak, and place our national knowledge first. We need to send these remains to the university, along with some grant money, for research and testing.”
3. “Burn them? Letting them rot in some dank university closet? You can’t let these travesties occur!” demands Minerva Yeltsin, the curator of the Maxsonian Museum Of History. “These bones are in pristine condition and deserve to be seen by the public! Imagine the revenue and tourism that would be brought in if you allowed me to display these bones, bared for all to see! Who cares if it upsets some smug know-it-alls or overly sensitive descendants? This is preservation! This is money, err, culture!”
4. “Hey, what’s the big idea trying to pick and choose who gets what?” questions college student Tom Ephron, followed closely by his peers. “We found those bones, so we should get to take them for ourselves! Our right to the claim is firmly supported by the case of Finders Keepers v Losers Weepers. Plus, I really need to pass my thesis. I’m running out of time and these bones would really put me over the top!”
5. Dismiss the issue
Option 2. sounds nice so I choose it.
The result saids ‘Graverobbers claim they’re acting within the interest of ‘scientific preservation’.’
In result, my nation get a boost of this qualities.
