... koji su stvarali najveci imperij u povijesti covjecanstva (kojega je alkoholik Churchill srusio sa svojom malom grupom pristasa).
Men of ability and enthusiasm who find no suitable way to serve their country under the current political system; able youth recruited from the schools and universities; men of wealth with no aim in life; younger sons with high thoughts and great aspirations but without opportunity; rich men whose careers are blighted by some great disappointment. All must be men of ability and character. ... Rhodes envisages a group of the ablest and the best, bound together by common unselfish ideals of service to what seems to him the greatest cause of the world. There is no mention of material rewards. This is to be a kind of religious brotherhood like the Jesuits, "a church for the extension of the British Empire."
... take Constitution of the Jesuits if obtainable and insert 'English Empire' for 'Roman Catholic Religion'. (1875.) ----
Personally I have no political interest worth mentioning, except the maintenance of the Imperial connection, and I look upon the future with alarm. ... I can see no remedy or protection, under the present circumstances, except a powerful body of men---and it would have to be very powerful---determined at all times and under all circumstances to vote and work, regardless of every other circumstance, against the man or party who played fast and loose with the cause of National Unity. You can be sure that for my own part I shall always do that. ... (1904.) --------
Koliko mnogo vise od toga trebaju oni koji se zalazu za golu egzistenciju svoje nacionalne drzave!
