Page "belles_lettres" Paragraph 14
from Brown Corpus
The two main charges levelled against the Bourbons by liberals is that they are racists and social reactionaries.
Most of them sincerely believe that the Anglo-Saxon is the best race in the world and that it should remain pure.
The Bourbon economic philosophy, moreover, is not very different from that of Northern conservatives.
They believe that if the South had been let alone it would have produced a civilization superior to that of modern America.
As it is, they consider that the North is now reaping the fruits of excess egalitarianism, that in spite of its high standard of living the `` American way '' has been proved inferior to the English and Scandinavian ways, although they disapprove of the socialistic features of the latter.
