okay so to be more clear this is on fredrick douglass and I'm trying to get a word that would match the situation a slave felt when they thought about running away because they didn't know where to run to and therefore thought it better to at least be somewhere where they are fed and have shelter rather than try runing away which could lead to their death.
Friedrich Engels coined the phrase false consciousness, which he and Marx believed was the proletariat's inability to recognize (or outright denial) of their social position. I would say that is a term you could look into.
