Orwell reasoning presented in the question because

Orwell has similar feelings toward imperialism, toward the native peoples, and toward his own position in Burma. First, he states that “imperialism was an evil thing,” which displays his overall feeling of hatred toward imperialism. Although he hates imperialism, he also felt hatred toward to people under the imperialist empire. He states that “I was stuck between my hatred of the empire I served and my rage against the evil-spirited little beasts who tried to make my job impossible.” While he was working in Burma, he struggled with the idea that he hated imperialism, but also hated the people living under the imperialist empire. Basically, he hates the idea of imperialism and cannot get along with the people living under the empire. As for the native peoples, he feels resentful toward them. The natives mocked him and laughed at him and he “was baited whenever it seemed safe to do so.” He hates the imperialist empire just like the natives, but he is still treated poorly by the natives. Next, he feels confined and without hope toward his own position in Burma. He hates imperialism and the people of the empire. When the elephant situation occurred, he stated that “I was only an absurd puppet pushed to and fro by the will of those yellow faces behind.” This shows the pressure that he feels within the empire from the natives. Lastly, he feels like his position within the imperialist empire is pointless because he is pressured and forced to do things, like he is being ruled by people of lower status than him.Fanon Question 5 This circular reasoning can be connected to Fanon’s ideas in two different ways. First, Fanon explains how the people who settled in an area often think that the natives desire to take their place. The passage states that “for there is no native who does not dream at least once a day of setting himself up in the settler’s place.” This is similar to the circular reasoning presented in the question because the colonists who settled in the natives’ land had desired to move into that specific area before they actually settled there. The colonists desired to settle in the natives’ area first and then, the natives desired to take the position of the colonists. Furthermore, he describes how the soldiers and policemen “maintain contact with the native and advise him by means of rifle butts and napalm not to budge.” This displays the violence that the colonists used to move into the areas of the natives. This may also connect with the circular reasoning because in order for the natives to get the settlers out of their land, they might have to use violence just as the colonists did. In all, many of the ideas and actions of the colonists became part of the natives’ mindset after the colonists colonized a specific area.
