This constituted an obstacle to any grassroots anti-colonial mobilization and deprived the subaltern of their voices. The civilizing mission conducted by the Soviet state has led certain sociologists to regard socialist modernization as internal colonization (Gouldner 1977), whereby both colonialism and anti-colonialism can both be regarded as important logics within the Soviet project.
