“The process of decolonization is a violent, brutal and involuntary act.”

Is not a “goal”.

It is an action, that in reality is the only means to remove all aspects of colonialism from a country that is led by colonial values.

When India extricated herself from Britain, did the peoples shake hands and call it a day?

When Vietnam extricated itself from the French was it peaceful? Was it rainbows and unicorns?

Of course not.

Colonization is nested in capitolism and the removal of one is a threat to the other- hence entilement and domination are promoted to protect colonial values through savvy propaganda and perpetual confirmation bias.
