western alphabet characters are one bit, whereas other alphabets have
characters which need 8 bits of information.
there is perhaps a more complex explanation, but this is the one i have
been told, and i think it simple enough to go by.

To the States or any one of them, or any city of the States,
Resist much, obey little,
Once unquestioning obedience, once fully enslaved,
Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city of this earth,
ever after-ward resumes its liberty.

-Walt Whitman, 1860
