9781330861196: Portugal of the Portuguese (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Portugal of the Portuguese

Since the murder of King Carlos and of the Crown Prince Luis FeUpe on the 1 st of February, 1908, Portugal has been in the limehght. A swarm of writers have descended hke locusts on the land, and the printing-presses of Europe have groaned beneath the mass of matter concerning this unfortunate country. Yet most often the matter has been necessarily superficial, and a few outstanding features, a murder, a revolution, the methods of a secret society, have laid hold on public attention. The Portuguese is, therefore, apt to be regarded less as a poetical dreamer, heir of the glories of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, than as a political schemer, with a pistol in one pocket and a bomb in another. And since in the matter of political disturbances the end is not yet, and a strident minority is likely for some years to come to impose itself in Portugal and attempt to impose itself on pubhc opinion abroad, cr5dng out that all criticism of it springs from hatred of Portugal, it is of importance to distinguish between this minority of misguided, unscrupulous and halfeducated persons, and the true people of Portugal. We do not usually mistake a little yellow froth on the surface for the sea, and only the ignorant will saddle the Portuguese people with the words and deeds of a pohtical party with which it has no connection whatever, not even that of the vote.
