Holiday in Lavalleja – Lavalleja Travel for A false consciousness is like a pernicious hypnotic trance in that it causes the victim to partake of a system designed to exploit him. It keeps the worker from actively pursuing his own good, which according to Marx would be best served by fomenting revolution.

To be positively free one must not only be unhindered by external constraints from doing what one wants to do. One must also be unhindered by internal constraints from pursuing one’s true interests.
