Is the Colonial era over?
Is the Colonial era over?
What Was Colonization? A phenomenon in which the self-appointed God-ordained Western Supremacists set out to ‘civilize’ the world.
Two main aftermaths followed. One is depicted by what was talked about in Africa – They handed us the Bible and told us close our eyes, when we opened our eyes, our land was gone.
The second one was Financial Double-exploitation. They purchased the raw materials from the colonies at a throwaway price and then sold the finished goods manufactured from the same raw materials to the same colony, at an exorbitant price.
Then there was also infinite political oppression and cultural suppression in the name of civilizing the barbarians or less-evolved backward cultures as per them.
Look around today, are two main aftermaths of Colonization still not around?
Are the Western powers still not considering themselves as self-appointing Supremacists? Are we still not seeking validation from them in everything from ratings to our lifestyle patterns? Are we not being told that the products and practices of the West are modern and ours are backward? Are we not giving up all of our culture to adapt their practices, aping them to no limits?
Yes, Colonization is still around, only the format has changed with the changing times. Now they don’t need to enslave you physically by tying you up. They don’t need to rule your country by capturing it. They don’t need to do double exploitation by coming to the forefront. They are doing all this more subtly, more systematically, without being noticed.
Few things to ponder :
What daily lifestyle products are you using?
What brands you are wearing?
What car you are driving ?
What phones you are using?
What apps you are using?
How much are your dependent technologically on the West?
Who is deciding the worth of your country’s currency?
Who is manipulating the politics in your country?
Who is setting the narrative of everything around you – what is right and what is wrong?
Correct, You got the answer.
The Western Philanthropists, families and power centers of the world are still deciding how others will live and think, you like it or not.
They silently interfere in your economic policies through their stooges sitting around you. In name of doing business in your country, they are again selling their products to you at exorbitant prices. They capsize the political narratives in your country and steer it to their benefits.
They are again making you look down on your religion and culture, encouraging you to own what they preach is modern. You have been fully mentally conditioned to eat from their hands. Dressing like them, talking like them, working like them, behaving like them, is normalized.
The only way to come out of this colonial rule is shunning the colonial slave mindset. A journey of thousand miles begins with the first step. Each one of us has to stop seeking validation or assistance from these people and their stooges. Become aware of people and phenomenon around you, learn to oppose things which you find wrong for your family, society, country.
I am not saying that we should shun the modernity and go back to stone age. I am saying that we don’t need to be mental slaves to embrace the modernity. Take pride in your roots and embrace the modern developments. You don’t need to call your customs and culture bad to be modern.
Start recognizing the stooges and opposing them. The colonization can only thrive when our people support them. We will take only what we want, not what they give.
We are a sovereign nation and we have every right to think and act the way we want, no one, I repeat no one, gets to decide for us in any matter whatsoever. Let us keep it this way.
This will entail a price, we should be ready to pay the price. They will hit back with their fat egos, we will give it back to them. Enough of hiding.
