Sida 44 - It is impossible that the allied powers should extend their political system to any portion of either continent without endangering our peace and happiness; nor can any one believe that our Southern brethren, if left to themselves, would adopt It of their own accord. It is equally impossible, therefore, that we should behold such interposition, in any form, with indifference.

Sida 491 - The bourgeoisie during its rule of scarce one hundred years has created more massive and more colossal productive forces than have all preceding generations together.
