Settlers are made by conquest, not just by immigration. Settlers are kept settlers by a form of the state that makes a distinction -particularly juridical -between conquerers and conquered, settlers and natives, and makes it the basis of other distinctions that tend to buttress the conquerers and isolate the conquered, politically. However fictitious these distinctions may appear historically, they become real political facts for they are embodied in real political institutions.
