Wow, this is incredible! I was just equating this sentiment with a form of ‘Stockholm Syndrome’, where the oppressed become so engrained in the systemic order of that oppression, that they begin to internalize, cooperate, perpetuate and protect that which oppresses them.
As long as they remain unenlightened, things stay as they are, children all over will continue to resign themselves and their futures as limited to right there in an oppressed state of being/ state of mind.

Oh yes! We internalize our oppression. And we transfer that internalized oppression to our children and communities!
