Consent: Not liberation

What liberals don’t understand is that 90% of oppression is consensual. People withstand oppression through 1) denial, 2) accommodation and 3) consent

Do not conflate consent with liberation. Consent is accommodation to unjust conditions that we do not control. Liberation is the overthrow of those conditions.
