Colonialism is fighting to strengthen its domination and human and economic exploitation. It is fighting also to maintain the identity of the image it has of Algerian and the depreciated image that the Algerian had of himself. Well, this has long since become impossible.
The Algerian nation is no longer in a future heaven. It is no longer the product of hazy and phantasy-ridden imaginations. It is at the very center of the new Algerian man. There is a new kind of Algerian man, a new dimension to his existence.
The thesis that men change at the same time that they change the world has never been so manifest as it is now in Algeria. This trial of strength remodels the consciousness that man has of himself.
