The Wretched of the Earth by Fanon

Fanon in his book The Wretched of the earth urges colonized nations to rise up against colonization through violent reactions. On the other hand, violence played a vital role in the decolonization of the African states which commenced in earnest in the 1960s. Fanon asserts that forceful demand for change after gaining consciousness of the self is the key aspect of decolonization. This process is not a negotiated diplomatic process but a forceful occurrence pitting two forces opposed to one another. He gives violence preeminence over dialogue and diplomacy approaches (Fanon and Philcox&nbsp.&nbsp. 38-40).
To complement the African decolonization process, Fanons brings in the concept of change in order. An order where the colonized rise up against the colonial masters and taking over. This was witnessed in several African countries with Ethiopia being a good example. Ethiopia through violence resisted Italians surge into their territory. After many years of political oppression, Africans get united with a common course to drive out colonizers out of the African continent. This wave sweeps through the entire continent that led to most countries being decolonized in the 1960s (Fanon and Philcox 80-85).
Violence begets violence. the harsh rule of the colonialists does not elicit obedience but violence in return. Furthermore, violence is the only way the colonized reclaim their values which they regard not as a favor but their fundamental right.
