Reading War Nerd | Clarissa’s Blog: “It’s people who self-identify this way. I am using a shamanic definition, which means how people set up their sense of self-identity in warlike opposition to other identies and in defence of their interests. Of course this means that the boundaries can never be fully plotted, because people can rise up in defence of their perceived interests at any time and they can even be wrong about the group of people they identify their interests to be lying with.

 In any case, my point was a fairly narrow one, in historically terms, although very broad in terms of what I understand as mostly an Anglo-Saxon phenomenon (but may be more extensive) to justify neo-colonialism behind a shroud of outrightly condemning the 19th Century colonial practices as evil and immoral.”
