It seems like you’re saying a couple of different things in this message; the main one I’m getting is that you are frustrated that you’ve realized oppression in western culture is real - and it makes you angry. Some people liken that oppression is something far away, way off in this fictional “middle east” (because we are taught so little about what other cultures are actually like, and believe harmful stereotypes). It’s thousands upon thousands of miles from where they live - out of sight out of mind. Except that’s not true at all. And you get that - frustration and all - when you open your eyes.
My point is, part of liberation is being pissed off. It’s one of the first steps, I believe.
