The above discussion makes the task of distinguishing social oppression from political oppression easier. Following my topography of spheres, political oppression is the formal deprivation of political liberties protected by political freedom and rights. Common examples include laws that preclude certain groups of adults from decision-making procedures and forums of debate. Voting legislation and requirements, precinct location, felony exclusions, and residency requirements are all examples of policies that can create conditions of political oppression.
These relations require more attentiveness than values like toleration permit but they do not further demand the intimacy of friendship proper. The friendship model does not require unfamiliars to treat one another as intimate friends, but there is room within it for the corresponding norms to be generalized. 1 If individuals aim to enhance social freedom, it is important for them to promote the values connected to friendship within their relations even if they do not desire to pursue actual friendships with those others.
Additionally, analyses of toleration do not clearly distinguish between hostility and indifference. This difference is significant because it helps the individual gauge how to engage the tolerant receiver. It is practically crucial and difficult to determine whether someone is hostile or indifferent to the speaker when toleration underlies the exchange, especially in oppressive relations. Supposing the tolerant receiver is actually hostile, too much interaction could be dangerous. For social freedom, the deciding difference between the values of friendship/friendliness and toleration is in the reception; even whole-hearted toleration can inadvertently shut one down, whereas something like a friendly rap session will encourage one to be (in multiple ways).
