This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
The existence of the oppressor is that there are people who can be oppressed. I realized that its existence is so natural, like the day and night, the black and white symbol of Taoism therefore, the oppressor and the oppressed. As I observe the world and its event, there are two opposing force that always exist the positive and negative, cause and effect, the thesis and anti-thesis, but I noticed these are the only one with two sides, like a coin, I doubt to solve it because I never see it as a problem or an unnatural experience, I rather observe it and see the process as it goes.
The author stated “An act is oppressive only when it prevents people from being more fully human.” Then I asked, what is meant to be a fully human, who has the right to make proper criteria. The theory of subjectivism and objectivism.
What if there is no positive and negative or an oppressor or an oppressed, there will be no action on this. It will be a world of stagnant, no movement, no conflict, all are equal but God loves variety and complexity. He made all things different.
I realized that the existence of the oppressor and the oppressed are but natural as it is. They exist both for each other. There is nothing we can do about it. We have witnessed it since the day of Cain and Abel, since the war in heaven between good and bad angels, until now. I already accept it. To be truly humane is to accept the fact that it is normal and natural.
but Jesus replied that this is not His kingdom and will not fight for it. True humanity is to accept the existence of everything and accepting it. I have just prepared to live with the other world while experiencing the insanity of this present world. I believe we can never solve the problem of the oppressed as long as we are here on earth. as long as we are here on earth we will able to experience this phenomena. I believe that the education of the oppress is to enlighten all the individual that an oppression is just an illusion and an oppressor are deceived by themselves and by their ego.I remember what Jesus said when He was asked by Pontius Pilate if He is a king. True liberation is to accept the truth that earth is not heaven and everything here is an enormous possibility of evil happenings. This is the way enlightenment. Jesus said “I have overcome the world” May the oppressed and oppressor be enlighten! . Jesus did not promise a happy and fulfilling life here on earth but instead he prophesied war and tribulation that will happen. Jesus said that he will save the people not the world. All we need is enlightenment if this reality. we can minimize but we can’t dissolve it.
