Obama, The Last Anti-Colonial

Dinesh D’Souza, native of Mumbai, India, with a plausible theory on why the Obama administration acts the way it does. Obama is fulfilling the dreams of his father, who was an anti-colonialist.

Anticolonialism is the doctrine that rich countries of the West got rich by invading, occupying and looting poor countries of Asia, Africa and South America.
. . .
Anticolonialists hold that even when countries secure political independence they remain economically dependent on their former captors. This dependence is called neocolonialism, . . .
. . .
For Obama, the solutions are simple. He must work to wring the neocolonialism out of America and the West. And here is where our anticolonial understanding of Obama really takes off, because it provides a vital key to explaining not only his major policy actions but also the little details that no other theory can adequately account for.
