Begging one’s oppressor to stop engaging in oppression is the logical equivalent of demanding a mosquito to kindly cease with the sucking of your blood. Regardless of your line of questioning, be it soft or ferocious, both creatures are going to proceed with what it is they do, for it is their nature.
