Patagonian, Chaco and Fueguian peoples, as a systematic practice of the State and as a "private" activity protected by it, are difficult to separate from pessimism regarding the real possibility of integration of these populationstwo.Once this impossibility was publicly expressed in terms linked both to the body and to the way of life, the deployment of mobile phone number list extermination technologies and forced assimilation had convergent meanings that were difficult to distinguish in their effective development. The difficulty or impossibility of assimilating the native peoples could be presented in the "language of culture" and refer simultaneously to the identifiers of mobile phone number list the body and of "race".
The "success" in the assimilation enterprise, likewise, was followed by the suspicion about their true integration, bearing indelible marks on their mobile phone number list bodies that underlined their incomplete character. I am not writing anything new when I point out that the work that best supports the right of "progress" over "backwardness" is that of Domingo F. Sarmiento, himself ambiguous about the possibility of integrating non-Europeans into the national project, but determined and systematic in postulating the need to correct those moral traits that mobile phone number list were conceived as an obstacle to development.
The civilization / barbarism polarity, which circulated in his time and was masterfully collected and elaborated in Facundo , attributes the production mobile phone number list of barbarism to the «desert»3. A modern nation could only emerge on the defeat of the desert: neither the values, nor the institutions, nor the character of "civilized man" could germinate there.
