Some kinds of coercion are clearly recognized, and are equally clearly resisted, but in many cases the distinctions between coercion and persuasion, collaboration and resistance, and phenomena that may be none of these things, are much less clear. For example, in the presence of hegemony, social pressures may blur distinctions between persuasion and coercion. Acquiescence to domination in the context of social sanctions on non-compliance does not necessarily mean persuasion, so situations must be critically analyzed for the kinds of pressures that potentially load people’s choices.

According to Torgovnick, modernity has required the primitive ‘as a precondition and a supplement to its sense of self’. Primitivity is both exotic and familiar to moderns, an opposition that explains us (Torgovnick 1990: 8, 11, 246). Kate Manzo (1991: 10) used ideas from Derrida to describe modernist discourses as ways of thinking about the world in terms of hierarchical dichotomies. One of the most important of these dichotomies has been to place the modern world above ‘other areas of the globe which remained “traditional”, that is, less cosmopolitan, less scientific, less secular, less rational, less individualist, and less democratic’.

Some kinds of coercion are clearly recognized, and are equally clearly resisted, but in many cases the distinctions between coercion and persuasion, collaboration and resistance, and phenomena that may be none of these things, are much less clear.
