Use the document to answer the following questions. In 1893 Captain F. D. Lugard presented a justification for Great Britain's indirect rule of East Africa. “There are some who say we have no right in Africa at all, that it belongs to the natives.' I hold that our right is the necessity that is upon us to provide for our ever-growing population—either by opening new fields for emigration, or by providing work... In Africa, moreover, there is among the people a natural inclination to submit to a higher authority. That intense detestation of control which animates our Teutonic races does not exist among the tribes of Africa, and if there is any authority that we replace. It is the authority of the Slavers and Arabs, or the Intolerable tyranny of the 'dominant tribe.” —quoted in Civilization Past & Present. How convincing do Captain Lugard's arguments seem today?
