facts, if it is consented to it’s not hiearchy

They let Ancaps in there?

This is such a tired and honestly boring debate, because Chomsky is clearly not saying that abusive power structures are legitimate. He’s saying that power must be held accountable, and when they’re not held accountable is when they are hierarchical.

POWER DOESN'T HAVE TO FUCKING EXIST

This is one of those cases where if your ideology is opposed to common sense, change your ideology. Kids absolutely need authority. If your kid is running toward a busy road, are you going to beg them to stop while you jog alongside them explaining why getting hit by a car is a bad idea? Or are you going to (authoritatively) grab their arm and pull them back? I know which one I'd do, and if that doesn't make me an anarchist, so be it.

SHUT UP

SHUT

THE

FUCK

UP

It doesn't matter if a hierarchy is "justified" or not. I'm going to want it to die.

It's fine, I made a hierarchy with myself on the top, so I'm a justified authority.

As the official representative of The People™, I officially approve your justified authority.
