Homework Help: Social Studies

Posted by Jenn on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 at 2:19pm.

"Spreading light...without taking part in the affairs of the world...seeing as a trap...all expantion into Africa or the Orient-for a great nation to live this way, believe me, is...in less time than you may think, to sink from the first rank to the third and fourth."
-Jules Francois Camille Ferry, speech to the French
Chamber of Deputies, March 28, 1884

QUESTION-What activity is Ferry referring to when he speaks of "spreading light" into the world?

I believe he was talking about the Enlightenment. Please explain why my answer is right or wrong.

Thanks!
