verb

To bring under total control or subjection; to conquer, master, or enslave.

To ask strength not to express itself as strength, not to be a will to dominate, a will to subjugate, a will to become master, a thirst for enemies and obstacles and triumphant celebrations, is just as absurd as to ask weakness to express itself as strength.

—Friedrich Nietzsche “First Essay” On the Genealogy of Morals (1887)
