    "There is no such thing as man in the world. During my life, I have seen Frenchmen, Italians, Russians, and so on; thanks to Montesquieu, I even know that one can be Persian; but I must say, as for man, I have never come across him anywhere; if he exists, he is completely unknown to me."
    --Joseph de Maistre, Considerations on France

    Also from de Maistre:

    "A constitution that is made for all nations is made for none: it is a pure abstraction, an academic exercise of the mind, according to some hypothetical ideal, that should be addressed to man, in whatever imaginary realm he inhabits. Is not a constitution a solution to the following problem: Given the population, customs, religion, geographical situation, political relations, wealth, good and bad qualities of a particular nation, to find the laws which suit it?"


    This certainly helps describe the basic logic I've held against going to war for the purposes of exporting American-style democracy. What may work here may not necessarily work there. There are no one size fits all solutions in geopolitics.

    Quite true.
