Abstract:Considers the problems of the return to the source and of identity and dignity in the context of national liberation. Return to the sources is a denial by the petite bourgeoisie of the country of the pretended supremacy of the culture of the dominated people with which it must identify itself. The struggle for liberation is possible when the return to the sources goes beyond the individual and is expressed in groups or movements. Identification of a section of the indigenous petite bourgeoisie with the mass of the people has an essential prerequisite: that the masses retain their identity separate and distinct from that of the colonial power. In what circumstances this retention is possible is decided at the end. Note.
