Masochistic West?


British media must truly be in masochistic mode to be promoting a book like that. Sometime I wonder if those guys have really begun taking pleasure in this intellectual self-flagellation ... Anything gone wrong with their former colonies has to be their doing ... All historical tragedies in those societies must be their handiwork ... and when facts fail them, they love falling for half-truths and plain lies ... And this is the way they want to continue to be involved in their former colonies ... I mean it's kind of a peculiarly perverse kind of self-obsession!

One must find a way to define this strange streak of residual imperialism

I haven't read this book but a lot of contemporary writing from the west about erstwhile colonies is fictionalized and exaggerated so much so that they want to create an alternate history which keeps them constantly at the center.

The White Man's Burden was helpful somehow, but the White Man's Guilt is not - neither now nor in the long run...
