Quote: Colonized Minds

Imperialism, which today is waging war against a genuine struggle for human liberation, sows seeds of decay here and there that must be mercilessly rooted out from our land and from our minds.

-- Frantz Fanon


Written four and half decades ago, in Africa, by and to the colonized. Interestingly, relevant in a different way to those who benefit from colonialism and imperialism in twenty-first century Canada.

Great quote.

I just wanted to let you know that I just stumbled across your blog yesterday and I was so impressed with your Gramsci, Sesame Street and Thomas the Engine post a few years back that I wrote a pretty rave review of your blog here:

Well done Scott!

I told you that you should submit that piece for publication. Seriously.
