ABSTRACT
The article informs that the New City of Fez is a model protectorate in the classical Roman sense, a dream without culture. It gives one an idea of what the world would have looked like if Germany had won the war. A mere 14,000 French, have created for their exclusive use one of the most lovely and modern cities ever built. But the white European comes for profits and profits are made from a cheap, non-unionized, inferior race labor, market. Force may be legitimatized into right through time, but the French started their occupation of Morocco in 1907 and only completed it in the middle 30's. Their arguments are particularly farcical now that Libya has received its independence.
