Helpless Imperialists
Imperial failure, Radicalization and Violence between high Imperialism and Decolonization

„A white man mustn't be frightened in front of ‚natives’; and so, in general, he isn't frightened. The sole thought in my mind was that if anything went wrong those two thousand Burmans would see me pursued, caught, trampled on and reduced to a grinning corpse like that Indian up the hill. And if that happened it was quite probable that some of them would laugh. That would never do.“

George Orwell, 1936
