db notes:The idea that we can impose American values on those who have no wish for, and may not admire, those values, is appalling.

I can't find my old college book, but to paraphrase:"As I pondered and prayed over what to do with the Phillipines, it came to me that we have no choice but to Westernize and Christianize these savage people."
