Frantz Fanon: Removing Imperialism

Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief.

Imperialism leaves behind germs of rot which we must clinically detect and remove from our land but from our minds as well.

- Frantz Fanon
