This feels more like a statement rather than a question. It would seem that in Institutional Oppression vs. The Female Florynce Kennedy is arguing that consent to oppression is implicit rather than explicit, for the most part. It reminds me of arguments for the "social contract" stuff wherein one doesn't have a choice on the matter. I found a pdf of the article where the random quote came from if anyone wants to read it. https://gallery.mailchimp.com/a84b2619f737ac1cec0f75881/files/kennedy_institutionalized_oppression.pdf
i agree that individual (personal) relationships can have much more nuance and depth. but the question specifically refers to "system of oppression", which to me points to a more institutional meaning of the word. (i'm not saying individual relations are not impacted by systems/institutions, only saying that i can see them as distinct from each other, even if often interrelated).
to imply that institutional oppression derived from force - say, chattel slavery - requires consent of the enslaved is beyond a stretch to me. that is what kanye west apparently thinks.
or take human trafficking... while no doubt some may begrudgingly submit to such horrors in the effort to save their children or families or lives or whatever, i'm guessing many/most of them do not give consent of any sort.
but of course, the definition of "consent" probably becomes the major point of contention here.
funky: "but of course, the definition of "consent" probably becomes the major point of contention here."
as well as the definition of "oppression" and "exploitation"....not to mention the yes/no phrasing of the question....
for example, if "oppression" exists in terms of compulsory schooling today (including the "institution" of the school system) , most people give "consent" in terms of agreeing to go to school or willingly sending their daughters and sons to school, even without any physical force present. of course, the indigenous people around the places where i've lived, at one time got physically forced (or otherwise killed) to attend school, and even some young people today first arrive at school kicking and screaming with their parents dragging them into class.....so yes, and no....
