He is simply offering a description—given these conditions, here is what happens: "Decolonization is always a violent phenomenon." But is it any use? The hinterlands must be integrated with the city. It is an African, a man from the Third World, an ex-‘native’. This is a defence, but it is also the end of the story; the self is disassociated, and the patient heads for madness. The proof is you are holding this book. Yes. Of course, Fanon mentions in passing our infamous crimes at Set if, Hanoi, and Madagascar, but he does not waste time condemning them: he makes use of them. Fanon reminds us that not so very long ago, a congress of psychiatrists was distressed by the criminal propensities of the native population. The former had the Word; the others had the use of it. One dead man did I say? He discusses those involved in the colonial situation in terms of singular, ideal types: the settler, the native, and the native intellectual, to name just three. The wretched of the earth Frantz Fanon , Richard Philcox (trans.) In this chapter Fanon cites actual cases from his work as a psychiatrist. For this reason his book is scandalous. Everyone can think what he likes, provided however that he thinks: in a Europe shinned by the blows it is receiving these days, the slightest distraction of thought in France, Belgium, and England amounts to a criminal complicity with colonialism. How come he can't see his own savagery as a colonist in the savagely of these oppressed peasants who have absorbed it through every pore and for which they can find no cure? These learned men would do well today to follow up their investigations in Europe, and particularly with regard to the French. Everything will be done to wipe out their traditions, to substitute our language for theirs and to destroy their culture without giving them ours. After that, when it is their turn to be broken in, when they are taught what shame and hunger and pain are, all that is stirred up in them is a volcanic fury whose force is equal to that of the pressure put upon them. Sometimes the Left scolds them ... ‘you’re going too far; we won’t support you any more.’ The natives don’t give a damn about their support; for all the good it does them they might as well stuff it up their backsides. Ultimately the liberation of colonized peoples will benefit all of humanity. For two reasons; the first is that Fanon explains you to his brothers and shows them the mechanism by which we are estranged from ourselves; take advantage of this, and get to know yourselves seen in the light of truth, objectively.
