Winston Churchill - Imperialist

"I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the
manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not
admit that right. I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has
been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of
Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by
the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise
race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place."

Winston Churchill 1937

"It is alarming and also nauseating to see Mr. Gandhi, a seditious
middle temple lawyer, now posing as a fakir of a type well known in
the east, striding half-naked up the steps of the vice-regal palace,
while he is still organizing and conducting a defiant campaign of
civil disobedience, to parley on equal terms with the representative
of the king-emperor."

Winston Churchill, 1930
