Thecycle of liberation is a model that describes the common patterns ofevents towards effective transformational efforts (Harper& Leicht, 2015).The design is well organized and is used to structure and identifyvarious processes that would have been hard to visualize usinganother technique. This scheme can be termed as a representation ofdynamic structures as it does not describe the main course of actionas people make different choices and decisions and react differentlyin various situations (Harper& Leicht, 2015).The design is, therefore, a representation of the possiblecombinations towards successful liberalization than a particularcourse of action. The scheme makes efficient use of theoreticalframeworks, analysis, and real-life experience to describe a stringof recurring event which happens during the most powerful socialchange initiatives (Zhang& Subasinghe, 2016).These efforts result in some level of liberalization among thosesociety members who face oppression irrespective of the roles theyplay in the process (Harper& Leicht, 2015).
Itis evident that liberalization commences when an individual start todiscover themselves and they begin to feel different in the sameworld (Zhang& Subasinghe, 2016).The waking up process is characterized by the intrapersonal changewhich means changes in the perceptions about one. This effect mayresult from a critical encounter or gradual evolutionary processeswhich shift our perspectives about the world (Harper& Leicht, 2015).During this phase, some things no longer make sense and people startraising questions due to a process called cognitive dissonance (Zhang& Subasinghe, 2016).These moments are marked by many feelings of discomfort because ittakes time for the human brain to adjust from what was previouslyperceived to be correct to another form of knowledge (Zhang& Subasinghe, 2016).However, the degree of discomfort may vary because individuals areunique and react differently in various situations. Some people wouldbe acutely affected while others would be able to adjust quickly(Zhang& Subasinghe, 2016).
