Carlos quotes Fanon

An email from a colleague came with this quotation by Frantz Fanon:

I ascribe a basic importance to the phenomenon of language. To speak means to be in a position to use a certain syntax, to grasp the morphology of this or that language, but it means above all to assume a culture, to support the weight of a civilization.
