Oppression…(a random thought)…
Oppression….I wanted to write something about oppression for the longest time, but never seemed to find the right time for it. anyway, I feel now is the perfect time. No particular reason though, I just thought of it randomly.
Well, the thing with oppression is that, its always a 2-way thing: Oppressing and being oppressed, and often times both can ocurr within one entity. Its torture, really! You being the oppressor of yourself which up with you oppressing other people.
Why does one do it? Perhaps, there’s something very addicting about it. Its like a drug, it consumes you, but then you end up being more oppressive, as a result, you oppress yourself more. Its like an imposing force. You impose something on another person because you think it unfair that its only you being oppressed. Well, I’ve got good news for you, buddy! Its not just you being oppressed. We are part of a chain reaction where each one of the 7 billion people in the world is involved. The moment one craves for power and recognition, that is the moment where one oppresses. When one oppresses himself, it always shows. He almost always oppresses another. ITS ALL ABOUT THAT!.
Is it vanity? ABSOLUTELY! Its about self-inflicted pain and self-gratification (i dont wanna use the M word anymore). ITS ALL ABOUT THE SELF. But then again, like with what arrogance does, it destroys you.What happens when oppression stops? The world will cease to exist. In the world we live in, there is always that brute force which implores us to be somehow, oppressed. OPPRESSION IS REALITY. —Dec 10 2010, 12:44 am
