A Late Night Thought on Oppression

To one extent or another, all hierarchical societies oppress their members.  That’s to say, some degree of oppression has so far proved necessary to create and maintain every hierarchical society we know of.  Most of us deal with the fact by largely ignoring it.  Then again, some of us flat out deny it.  But no one escapes it.  Civilization is a devil’s bargain.
