I’m at your School of Applied Sciences, lecturing innocent students

Heh, chuckling to myself as I finish my lecture for tomorrow. I’ll be talking to a group of 50+ students at The Hague’s High School of Applied Sciences on Europe’s immigration policies. You know, introducing innocent (mostly White) youngsters to the wonders of Eurocentrism…

While the European Union project started in the late 40‘s/ early 50s as a post World War II antidote to the kind of nationalism that leads to intra European wars, Europe’s history, however, did not start then. Europe, as a philosophical ideal, started much earlier, with the history of colonialism, imperalism and expansionist projects that led the continent countries’ to travel half the world away to establish enclaves and colonies. One cannot think of Europe, one cannot begin to understand Europe and its policies, without taking the former Empires’ subjects into account. 

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
