Comment on The Rise of the Arabs, the Fall of Colonialism by Simone
Honestly, I get a little bored by hearing that everything is the West’s fault. My god guys, your future belongs to you, and always has. It’s your problem if it took you decades to assert yourself.
I also find it deeply irritating that on the one hand you ask the West to step in in Kuwait and now Libya, and yet punish and see conspiracy when you do manage to convince them. Damned if they do, damned if they don’t.
Please, liberation comes from within, and that means allowing yourself to be liberated from the past. Today is your world. Stop whining and sieze it.
