  By Alaric Tokpa   Counter-hegemonic Discourse and the Crisis of the Liberian State The above framing of subject heading is in no way intended to suggest that counter-hegemonic discourse preceded the crisis of the state in Liberia. In fact, it was the crisis of the state that generated and gave fertile grounds to militant activism which, in turn, provided greater public exposure to the crisis of the state and induced popular opposition.
