The Royal family saw the terror of the French Revolution, the Queens nephew by 1792 was now Emperor of Austria and felt no need to rescue his Aunt who he had never met before. When Portugal first colonized Brazil in 1500, Tupi or Tupinambá (a language of the Tupi-Guarani family spoken by natives living on the Brazilian seacoast) was used along with Portuguese as the general language of the colony. Similarly the Portuguese, although the first Europeans to establish trading settlements in sub-Saharan Africa, fail later to consolidate their advantage.

The fado, derived from the Latin word for "fate," is a popular urban song form that generally expresses sadness, longing, and regret. In French usage, Prince Albert of Monaco, as heir to Prince Rainier, is a "prince-heredetaire", and Prince Alois, the heir of Hans-Adam of Liechtenstein is, in German usage, an "Erbprinz". "Hereditary Prince" and "Hereditary Grand Duke" sound alien in English, but this is how they must be translated.

Senator Albert Beveridge was a leading light of the day and eventually joined Teddy Roosevelt’s third party when he ran for president in 1912.� In January of 1900, Beveridge gave a famous speech in which he called the Filipino people “children,” totally incapable of “self-government.”� It was a direct echo of Kipling’s sentiments.� McKinley told a group of Methodist ministers: “The truth is I did not want the Philippines and when they came to us as a gift from the gods, I did not know what to do with them.” [237] The invasion’s benevolence quickly became evident.� The Filipino people could not be kept from childish notions of self-government, and the USA quickly waged a war against them, in much the same way they prosecuted the exterminations of Native Americans, even using the same rhetoric at times.� In the Philippines, while many thousands of “militant” natives were killed, the USA murdered between 200,000 and 600,000 civilians, using starvation and other tactics, including torture.� The Americans called the Filipinos “goo-goos,” and waged scorched-earth campaigns.� It was a preview of what the USA did to Southeast Asia during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.� “Goo-goo” was a direct predecessor to “gook” and the same kinds of “kill-all-the-civilians” tactics were used in both wars, to “help” those people.� Tacitus remarked on the Roman style of warfare and subjugation: “They make a desert and they call it peace.”� One American o fficer in the Philippines justified the exercise with: “There is no use mincing words…If we decided to stay, we must bury all qualms and scruples about Weylerian cruelty, the consent of the governed, etc., and stay.� We exterminated the American Indian, and I guess most of us are proud of it, or at least believe the end justified the means; and we must have no scruples about exterminating this other race standing in the way of progress and enlightenment, if it is necessary.” [238] � There was little domestic dissent to that American adventure. [239] � When atrocity stories began trickling into the USA, Philippine hearings were held, but they were rigged by Henry Cabot Lodge, and Beveridge assisted in the whitewash, which has been a standard outcome in virtually every governmental investigation into its own conduct, and is a pattern that holds to this day.� Not everyb ody in America cheered the Philippine invasion.� There was a vigorous Anti-Imperialist League, and Mark Twain was its leading spokesperson.� Twain likely considered the last years of his life his most important, as he led campaigns against American and European imperialism.� Mark Twain wrote about King Leopold’s genocidal efforts, but because American corporations were investors in the rape of Africa, the publication of Twain’s King Leopold’s Soliloquy was almost completely suppressed in the USA and remains one of his least known works.
