Their implicit or explicit utopia is modernity, defined against a dystopia of backwardness. ‘Progress’ and ‘development’ are needed to attain modernity.
This obscures the fact that weaker groups are often aware of the ways in which they are being dominated and are ingenious in resisting, even while appearing to collaborate, and may adapt situations of dominance to suit their own ends (Hanlon 1998; Fry 1996). For example, a preoccupation with dominance in writings about Pacific Islanders has resulted in much victim identification, resulting in ‘despondency theory’ (Sahlins 2000) or ‘fatal impact theory’ (Howe 1984). Writers too busy looking for domination have ended up representing colonized peoples as being without agency and colonized cultures as fragile things that collapse in the face of much stronger colonizer cultures.
