did european colonialism ruin our world?

“The mindset is the barbarians are backward and inferior and for their own benefit we have to uplift them, civilize them.”
Noah Chomsky in Uganda Rising (2006)

From an auto-critique I made to the European consciousness, I launch a question that deals with our own historical past. The goal is to reflect upon the impact of that colonialist past which, to our western culture, has a certain distance in time, but whose consequences are still extremely felt in the African Continent today. Europe left military and religious marks and created a profound division in this continent only due to an illusory notion of superiority; actions that the European culture managed to disassociate from its own identity through a discourse of dissemination of democratic values, plurality, and rights.
