Frantz Fanon's The Wretched Of The Earth is a tour de force though the horrors of 20th century colonialism. Fanon's thought provoking observations still resonate. This is always a sign of well written history.

I have recently come to believe that Fanon's conclusion urging humankind to collectively do better than the heinous horrors imperialist european colonialism has inflicted on the world improbable but possible. One could argue that it would be difficult to do worse. However that is not the source of my minuscule optimism. ie The Singularity is made indomitable by virtue of the very greed that it will destroy.
