In postmodern society, real and physical feelings are often forgotten while concept of consumption and exchange constitute an important foundation to our life as a part of the society. The boundary between the oppressed/oppressor has became ambiguous as we frequently switch between the boundary to fulfill our different roles in the society and in the subordination relationship. Emancipation is against the dilemma that we may become a thing in various social systems, production relations and forms, and an important reference for individuals seeking self-identity in the world. The lack of critical ideological life is an accomplice in the form of collective oppression. When people observe, reflect and treat themselves and their dissidents in social relations, this is a sincere and reciprocal mutual response, and also a belief in life.
