in the concept of Development:

“The lead runners show the way; they are at the forefront of social evolution, indicating a common destination even for countries which had highly diverse trajectories in the past. Many different histories merge into one ‘master history’ ... the imagined time is linear, only allowing for progressing or regressing” (Wolfgang Sachs)

And yet we know the destination of this 'master history' already! This is an oppressive pretension and it is poison!
