So I guess Nkrumah was right, who’s ready to fight?
Last stage of imperialism, I ain’t kiddin
Kwame Nkurmah (1889-1979), was the leader of the Gold Coast’s movement toward independence from Britain during the 1940’s and ‘50s. He headed the new nation of Ghana following its independence in 1957 until 1966, when he was overthrown by a coup. Kwame Nkrumah wrote 'Neo-Colonialism, the last Stage of Imperialism,’ that M1 is most likely referencing.
Imperialism is the act of extending a country’s power and influence over another country or group of people through diplomacy, or if need be, through use of military force in order to create and/or maintain an unequal economic, cultural, and territorial control, based on domination and subordination.
