Short Response

How does Rousseau explain the development of oppression and domination?  Remember that oppression and domination for Rousseau (contra Hobbes) are not inevitable parts of the state of nature, so how did the progress of society lead to oppression and domination?  Think about the development of property, ownership, the relations between the “strong and the weak”, laws/right, etc.  These will help you think about how oppression and domination became pernicious aspects of society.  Also remember to explain what oppression/domination are for Rousseau.
