    Week 2- Understanding Colonialism and Post-colonialism Colonialism and post-colonialism is a demanding understanding of different indigenous cultures around the world. The idea of colonialism and imperial are like-minded which can be compatible. In the English dictionary, colonialism is defined as ‘a farm or settlement referred to the Romans who had settled in other lands but retain their citizenship’ (Loomba, 2015). Understanding this definition helps development in the community, but is unfair as it’s not a new process (Loomba, 2015).

    In this review, I examine existing literature on the nature of the relationship between colonial legacies and economic development. What the literature collectively points out is that colonialism did bring some benefits in terms of technology, peace and an access to and implantation of modern institutions. Yet little attempt was really made to make such benefits endure, and many were restricted to the colonial period. They also brought racism, discrimination, inequality (as a part of their…

    “An Outpost of Progress” entails a pithy illustration of Postcolonialism as well as Colonialism. In times past, European’s intention to disperse widely civilized progress was used to justify the brutal process of colonialism (cf. Peters 51). However, by means of crucial satire, the narrator illustrates the absolute opposite, since Kayerts and Carlier’s mental state deteriorates significantly, influencing drastically the decline of the Africans as well.

They seem to be a common target not only for Europeans but for many countries…
