You could feasibly build a justified hierarchy out of consent and antecedent mental states. It’d just be so strict that a justified hierarchy wouldn’t be a hierarchy at all. Like BDSM, but the relationship ceases to have a hierarchy the moment one party doesn’t consent (i.e. a mechanism of some sort causes the dominator to remove the restraints).

Agent-based theories are boring though.

BDSM is just an authority fetish tbh

Do you think that BDSM is inversely or directly proportional with how authoritarian a society is?
