Frantz Fanon – Colonialism, Concessions & Compromise

“The people and every militant should be conscious of the historical law which stipulates that certain concessions are in fact shackles…The colonized must be made to see that colonialism never gives away anything for nothing…Whatever gains the colonized make through armed or political struggle, they are not the result of the colonizer’s good will or goodness of heart but to the fact that he can no longer postpone such concessions…The colonized, at the most, can accept a concession from the colonial authorities, but never a compromise.”

-Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth
