I can has hOED?

I don't know if the OED counts as a theorist. Maybe?



For those without access to the OED, the second definition given for colonialism is, "The colonial system or principle. Now freq. used in the derogatory sense of an alleged policy of exploitation of backward or weak peoples by a large power." I find the "allegedly" amusing in a sort of "Oh, is that where the Third World came from?" /sarcasm kind of way.
