Frantz Fanon, 1961
The Wretched of the Earth
For centuries they [Europe] have stied almost the whole of humanity in the
name of a so-called spiritual experience. Look at them today swaying
between atomic and spiritual disintegration.
Europe and Capitalism
Europe undertook the leadership of the world with ardour, cynicism and
violence. Look at how the shadow of her palaces stretches out ever farther!
Every one of her movements has burst the bounds of space and thought.

excites me the most that I will come home to you! My wonderful girl. You will knock
on the door and I’ll be running like Sookie to great you and hug you and kiss you
and because you are my home. The only thing that gets me through school is that I
will one day forever be with you, forever and ever!!!!! We can have movie nights
and have dinner and drink wine and snuggle and go to bed together. Only us
