Oppression and Free Will

Is oppression a natural state? How can our choices be constrained and our will still be free?

Is it possible to have a system which doesn't oppress, or is the question more of the nature of *who* gets oppressed?

Personally, I don't believe in an oppression-free state. If you're going to have a system, someone's going to be in control. When control isn't overt, it's covert and therefore more dangerous. When consensus is demanded, you lose the right of dissent. When obedience is required, you lose the right of choice.

What is oppression? When is it necessary? What does your religion say about it?
