anarchists oppose hierarchal relationships and social structures
February 2, 2014
okay. so like, they oppose hierarchal relationships and social structures.
and, even if this weren’t a sort of regular thing that people just do
it irritates me beyond being unrealistic
because they rarely consider that there are some tangible benefits to how hierarchies distribute labour within social groups.
it is that basic fallacy
just because some hierarchies are oppressive, it doesn’t mean that all are.1
And look, this isn't me being theoretical or abstract. we have evidence to support this. evidence of various kinds. ↩
