#161, HALF OF THE UNITED STATES CAN BE CONQUERED IN TEN YEARS

Swami Vivekananda wrote to Mr. Alasinga Mudaliar, from London, in 1896:

"...Half the United States can be conquered in ten years, given a number of strong and genuine men. Where are they? We are all boobies over there!..."


BLOGGER'S VIEW :
*Did he conquer?
By 1899, he started begging dollars from American friends, for personal maintenance.
*See Post No. #045.

NOTE
In this context, 'booby means a stupid person. Not female breast.
