In the following, the meaning seems reversed for "more darkly". If it describes "to cease being a servant", wouldn't it be more pleasurable? Does it describe "to stop being a lord"? What I'm saying is you prefer a lord to a servant, so if you get out of the status of servant, you are happier than you are out of lord. I need your clear answer.
ex)....In traditional societies, high status may have been extremely hard to acquire,but it was also comfortingly hard to lose. It was as difficult to stop being a lord as more darkly, it was to cease being a servant. What mattered was one's identity at birth.....
