To him, the illegitimacy of colonisation is a double one. The coloniser finds a place to settle into by taking away that of the inhabitant (Memmi, p.9). If the coloniser refuses his role and shows sympathy to the colonised, other colonisers will reject him. If he accepts it, he will enjoy its privileges and will be accepted in the colony. Ronny realises the illegitimacy of the British presence in India.

Mussolini tried to downplay the ideological ambiguity of Fascism, arguing that labels like “conservative” and “liberal” were mere empty terminologies. For Mussolini, who was likely aware of his own opportunism, a political doctrine did not have any value in and of itself, but only in its usefulness in practice. It didn’t matter which means were used for the fulfillment of important ends: “The machine first of all must run!” In early-20th century Italy, Rightist methods happened to be the most useful, in Mussolini’s view, for effecting the political change he desired. It just so happened that the 20th century was “a century of authority, a century tending to the Right”—a century in which people preferred order. Mussolini accepted that Fascism
TALLINN 2015 Defenders of modern imperialism and colonialism long pleaded their case in terms of the white man’s burden, they reasoned that it was the obligation of advanced nation to help the people of backward nations. (Perkin, Palmer. 2007). Imperialism has a wide range of meaning as different people have varying levels of understanding, some definitions of imperialism are as defined by Moritz B. “ imperialism is a policy which aims at creating, organizing and maintaining an empire (which is a state of vast size composed of various more or less distinct national units and subject to a single centralized will”.
His writing has been exploring of the painful psychological impact of colonial cultural decline. Comrade Mzala rightly opines that “Art is an important weapon in the struggle; it either reinforces or undermines the power of the oppressor”. Through the novel Petals of Blood and Matigari we see Ngugi writing as a strong social satire. Both novels portray the life after colonial era but the common thing is the same situation and problem faced by natives during colonialism. Ngugi works are characterized by criticism against European unacceptable law and injustice.
from a postcolonial perspective under the guise of homogenising, national stability, and federalism the coloniser perpetuate the oppression of the marginalised . Besides the coloniser is aware of his ‘double illegitimacy’ because the foreigner creates a place of his own and takes away the place of the inhabitant .He legitimates this usurpation by substituting local laws with his own. It is not quite unnatural that the narrator’s mind indulged such notions or may be his mind nurtured the concept in a repressed state. In case of repression an individual psychologically attempts to repel desires or impulses by excluding it from the conscious and subduing it in the unconscious .Albert Memmi , in his nonfiction work The Colonizer and the Colonized, vindicates the fact that all racism and xenophobia consists of delusions about oneself including absurd and unjust aggression towards others. This is applicable for
This incident raised the following moral question worldwide: “How did we let it get this far?” The refugee crises have made us wonder whether we have always had cultural phobias such as xenophobia and hate. Or is it perhaps that globalization and digitalization have caused problems in regard to cope with cultural heterogeneity. Hence, it has raised an even more important question: “In global communication, how do you cope with cultural heterogeneity?” Global communication is the flow of people, money, goods, and stories of people. It is the carrier of cultural expressions (Hamelink, 2015a). Matei (2006), states that cultural heterogeneity is the exchange between different cultures, where regional and local ethnic identities are embraced even when global connections across regional and national borders become stronger.
Postcolonial literature attacks the colonial empire from the point of view of the marginalized, rendering voices to the stereotyped and quieted and establishing a claim to cultural identity. It seeks to assert the richness and validity of indigenous cultures in an effort to restore pride in practices and traditions that were systematically degraded under colonialism. It restores a disregarded ontology that applauds everything that is indigenous and cursing everything that is colonial. Jean Rhys’(1890-1979)Wide Sargasso Sea (1968) is celebrated as an excellent postcolonial deconstruction of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre and is appreciated for its subtle and sympathetic portrayal of a Creole madwoman caught in an oppressive and patriarchal society, struggling to find her own identity, in a society that belongs to neither White Europeans nor Black Jamaicans. “It reinvests its own hybridized world with a provincially authoritative perspective, but one which is deliberately constructed as provincial since the novel is at pains to demonstrate the subjective nature of point of view and hence the cultural construction of meaning.” (Tiffin, 24) By recreating Bronte’s colonial text from a postcolonial point of view, Rhys
How has colonialism affected our world through its own propagation of stereotypes? In today’s present, images of stereotypes are ubiquitous as they are distributed again and again by the media. The media in itself hands out these caricatures of colored women and men, while presenting complex shows of the white man. We see it in the three works of “Alright” by Kendrick Lamar, “The Danger of a Single Story” by Chimamanda Adichie, and “Pearl of the Orient” by The Jam Handy Organization. In this, stereotypes recur as an overall theme and its interaction with the “white man” or the oppressor.
