It was terrible. It denied the local elites the chance to lord it over the local underclasses. The local elites were worse off under colonialism, whereas the plebes were better off. Smart local elites figured this out and got the local plebes to help them evict their colonial rulers. After which many of the plebes had to go into exile to make a decent living. But at least the local elites got to advance their interests.
