Examples from texts

It weakens and stupefies; the sanctimoniousness bequeathed by heredity produces humiliated, timorous generations, decadent and docile nations, who are an easy prey to the powerful of the earth.
Elle affaiblit, elle abêtit, les tares dévotes que l’hérédité lègue font des générations humiliées et craintives, des peuples dégénérés et dociles, toute une proie aisée aux puissants de ce monde.

Thus all progress which requires change of territory would be prevented, and the development of strong States would be stopped by the status quo—to the advantage of decadent nations.
Toute cour d'arbitrage empêcherait nos progrès territoriaux, et le développement des Etals forts serait arrêté au profit des nations décadentes.
