A flabby devil

Colonialism - a tale of slavery, plunder, war, corruption, land-grabbing, famines, exploitation, indentured labour, impoverishment, massacres, genocide and forced resettlement - is rewritten into a benign developmental mission marred by a few unfortunate accidents and excesses...

Behind such the institence that we are being offered gutsy truths that the "politically correct" establishment love to suppress. This is the neo-conservative as spunky rebel against liberal tyranny.
