One of the worst things that happened was the complete and deliberate breaking-down of cultural patterns among the suppressed peoples. "Europe was staggered at the Leopoldian atrocities, and they were terrible indeed; but what we,who were behind the scene felt most keenly, was the fact that the real catastrophe in the congo was desolation and murder in the larger sense. The invasion of family life, the ruthless destruction of every social barrier, the shattering of every tribal law, the introduction of criminal practices which struck the chiefs of the people dumb with horror-- in a word, a varitable avalanche of filth and immorality overwhelmed the Congo tribe.   By W.E.B Du BOIS
