The there is if the nation aims to truly

The book The Wretched of the Earth written by one of the greatest anti-colonization liberation movements’ influencer Frantz, is written to embody the violence that faced Algerians who were seeking to be decolonized from France in the year 1954 after 100 years of living under blood-stained colonization. The author describes the relationship between both the colonizer and the colonized in new light and emphasizes on how the ideal and ideologies were being shoved in the minds of the colonized by exercising power on the less powerful which is in turn bottled up until freed only and only when decolonization gets its way through. He, in short, implies that indeed to colonize and in return to become decolonized, this substitution of humans and their identities needs a tremendous amount of violence. Hence, violence is the only proposed weapon there is if the nation aims to truly be liberated from colonization once and for all. The author also calls for further protests for the rights of the colonized that were forgotten as the years went by in contrast to when compensations for damages were demanded from the Germany for the crimes in WW2(p.58). The author moves on to argue that the violence evolves starting by the majority of the colonized in most rural areas rather than from the Western-ideas-fed urban settlers. But again, he suggests that the first conflict doesn’t arise from a normal division between urban and rural but rather between the colonized people who are more privileged and hence benefited by the colonization and the less privileged of them. And because the colonizer is able to divide people using this theory itself, the author suggests the rise of the so-called “national consciousness”. At this stage of the book, the author calls the nation to negotiate and educate rather than strictly authorize a leader and act like a “bourgeoisie”. The author then talks in detail on how the colonized think of their past as evil and the intellectuals of them try to reshape a new culture which is, in his opinion, a son of national consciousness. He uses as evidence of this, the poem by Rene Depestre, “Face a la nuit”. The author analyzes the psychological effects of colonization, how the colonized world teaches aggression and embeds hatred in the heart of the nation as in to say that the whole physical mass of the people are involved. Since the aggression is directed toward the public, those people then share a common enemy, in other words a common reason to unite and fight against the colonist. And if and only this violence implanted is directed towards overthrowing colonization will the nation be free from not only the colonizer but also the psychological effects caused by the agony of colonization.            This book is a wakeup call for the nations of earth to stand up against colonial domination. The author throughout the book begins by stating what it needs to be decolonized then goes about the means to this end. It provides an insight on how the psychology of the colonized is affected after they’ve been dehumanized and constantly humiliated. In short, Fanon preaches that the only weapon that’s good enough to flip the table on the enemy is violence. He writes a revolutionary lecture and addresses other colonized nations to follow his step by step analysis on how to rise from being colonized to being free.            The exceptional author Fanon writes from a perspective of a colonized person, He speaks in the language of “us” who are in a fight against all sorts of colonization. He speaks of personal experience about the cold war. It’s a book that discusses the reality of the concept of freedom and liberation of nations on the individual as well as on a societal level. The author being a scientist and a fighter himself, was able to blend both stories merged along with experience with theory. He uses theoretical evidence in his discussions throughout the book. There was a sense of pulling purpose in between the lines. As someone who has hardly read any history-related book in their lifetime, I can easily say that this book indeed is able to provide a good comprehension of colonization. The injustice and the agony portrayed in the book against humans who were just “objects” of colonization is painful. It convinces the reader that it is the struggle to overcome the evil that frees humans from it. A fair interpretation of this book requires multiple readings of it. This is considered a bit of a disadvantage for the easily bored and distracted as it’s very easy to miss a point and get lost at the intensity of the style the book is written in and the density of the theory behind the stories it tells. For me, this book was not easily read due to this factor as well as my lack of knowledge on the Algeria-French conflict. The only piece that can honestly be criticized is how much of an advocate of violence the author seems to be, however it can also be reasonably justified as it’s rational in war. But this book is an evidence that there’s a huge impact made by revolutionary writing on the people and that this type of writing is not limited to text about the revolution only.
