Psychology/Colonialism/Fanon: Fanon describes colonialism as a divided society in which the colonized live in a permanent tension between envy and the experience of rejection. The tension regularly discharges into feuds as a "collective form of substitution". (1)

Violence/Fanon: as a consequence of colonial rule, Fanon describes a "psychopathology directly caused by oppression" (2). He also ascribes pathologizing effects to the use of force in the context of colonial wars - and thus to anti-colonial liberation struggles and the state reactions that such struggles evoke. This clearly calls into question his interpretation as an apologist of violence.
