@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
