“It is a great tool of dictators and tyrants, who want to get masses of people to do what they want, to make sure there are no libraries...The fact that there was no public library in Rwanda is one reason why genocide was possible.”
Stephen Kinzer

“Americans had to choose between permitting them to become democracies or maintaining power over them. It was an easy choice.”
Stephen Kinzer, Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq

“Expansion presented the United States with a dilemma that has confronted many colonial powers. If it allowed democracy to flower in the countries it controlled, those nations would begin acting in accordance with their own interests rather than the interests of the United States, and American influence over them would diminish.”
Stephen Kinzer, Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq
