Colonialism is alive and well. Embedded within a politics of fear, racism and fossil fuel, colonial values situate the individual as an isolated figure within a hierarchy of power, privilege, and competition.

Perhaps it is useful to move beyond attempts to define colonialism and rather explore ideas which help us understand how colonialism defines us.
