“Royal Road a Sea of Mud”March 5, 1904, Jack London
The Korean has finer features, but the vital lack in his face is strength. He is soft and effeminate when compared with the strong breeds, and whatever strength has been his in the past has been worked out of him by centuries of corrupt government. He is certainly the most inefficient of human creatures, lacking all initiative and achievement, the only thing in which he shines is the carrying of burdens on his back. As a draught animal and packhorse he is a success.
