Democracy in America

If we reason from what passes in the world, we should almost say that the European is to the other races of mankind what man himself is to the lower animals: he makes them subservient to his use, and when he cannot subdue he destroys them. Alexis de Tocqueville
Doesn't sound like much has changed in over 150 years, huh? Except that we've branched out. Now America is not just about subduing or destroying indigenous people of the North American continent and the West Indies.

Did you know the entire text of Alexis de Tocqueville's
Democracy in America is available online?
