Cultural and Ethnic Fundamentalism: The Mixed Potential for Identity, Liberation, and Oppression

In this paper, Dr. Joyce Green argues that fundamentalism leads to rigid, exclusionary political processes that are likely to violate fundamental human rights, and so fundamentalism should be eschewed by Aboriginal liberationists as well as by post-colonial vanguards. According to Green, fundamentalism “cannot withstand intellectual contestation; it relies on its invocation of fundamentals in terms defined by its authorities. In this respect, then, fundamentalism leads to insularity and to exclusion of those who are not acceptable (or who do not accept) based on the assessment of the Knowers.”
