Lord Curzon's advice
We must remember that the ways of
ArabsOrientals are not our ways, nor their thoughts our thoughts. Often when we think them backward and stupid, they think us meddlesome and absurd. The loom of time moves slowly with them, and they care not for high pressure and the roaring of the wheels. Our system may be good for us; but it is neither equally, not altogether good for them. Satan found it better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven; and the normal ArabAsiatic would sooner be misgoverned by ArabsAsiatics than well governed by AmericansEuropeans.
Just ask France about that.........
