all of us without exception have profited by colonial


Stress on the “all of us” — it is not y/our freedom that is envied. Anyway envy is not hatred.

All of us without exception are prepared to deconstruct the demonizing “they” or the oft enforced solidarity of a too easy and untested “us”. Some of them and some of us, did. And do.

There are ways of profitting that do not partake of the economies of exchange. If I learn, I profit. If I profit, I make myself ready to seize the occasion. Or in this case to be seized by the occasion.
