There is nothing wrong with oppression in the service of happiness, and there is not a soul on earth, moral or not, who wouldn’t accept it with open arms—keeping in mind, for the moment, that happiness in part consists in the absence of any sense of being oppressed. To attempt to engage in such oppression is thus a risky maneuver since oppression that fails to produce happiness (and that thus leads directly to misery, which has heretofore proceeded from oppression) is a crime that ought to be punishable by death and that, historically, always thus far has been.
