“France has given in. Now there’s no turning back. The rest of the world will learn what has happened. Some will revel in our fall, some will suffer along with us. On the banks of the Amur. On the banks of the Limpopo. In Paris, New York, London. In the Philippines, in all the stifling Third World ports – Jakarta, Karachi, Conakry, and again in Culcutta – other huge armadas were ready to weigh anchor, bound for Australia, New Zealand, Europe. Carpet-like, the great migration was beginning to unroll. Not the first time, either, if we pour over history. Many a civilization, victim of the selfsame fate, sits tucked in our museums, under glass, neatly labeled. But man seldom profits from the lessons of his past.” (Jean Raspail, 1973)
