Thought For The Day: Mark Twain

'There are many humorous things in the world; among them, the white man's notion that he is less savage than the other savages.'

Maybe when we criticise and slate, say, Russia or Uganda for being 'backwards', 'uncivilised' etc, it is just to feel smug, while being politely racist, and let ourselves off the hook?

Maybe that's how hegemony works?

Fagburn loves Mark Twain so much....
