if i have to read the phrase "justified hierarchies" one more time my body will transform into snakes

@Cyclideon It always frustrates me so much. If you respect someone and frequently follow their advice, that's not a hierarchy, that's just agreeing with someone. If they have no power to make you do something you don't want to and you're free to disagree with them, then how much you respect them makes no difference!

It's *coercive* hierarchies, y'all. "Justified hierarchies" has so much fucking wiggle room, especially when you realize that authoritarians think *every* hierarchy is justified


@socalledunitedstates one of the latest threads on the r/debateanarchism subreddit is basically a couple of ancaps and a bunch of ancoms shaking hands over the idea that hierarchies can be good and the only person that gave any meaningful pushback was a 50+ year-old mutualist (shaun wilbur)
