What DON JUAN DONOSO CORTES said before the Spanish Parliament in 1849.

“The cause of your errors, Gentlemen, lies in your ignorance of the direction which civilization and the world are taking. You believe that civilization and the world are advancing, when civilization and the world are regressing. The world is taking great strides towards the constitution of the most gigantic despotism which men have ever known.”
