In the essay "National Culture" Frantz Fanon remarks on the significance of establishing a National Consciousness. This notion of a consciousness represents the ideas, edifices, movements, as well as, past, that shape a Nation. Studying the idea of Post-Colonialism I see the many layers that exist in the Islamic groups I've been affiliated with. How the colonialist works to cripple the colonized. How leadership does not really work to develop the subaltern. Not just because of a lack of knowledge; but, too, a spiritual penury that exist.
