democracy is still a -cracy and therefore an inherently stratified system that operates on the binary of civility against incivility. it's all law and order and therefore only a leviathan that masquerades as friendly and enacts genocide at a slower pace and through a smaller scale.

No it is not. This is a complete misinterpretation of the author’s theory. They aren’t advocating for a bourgeois democracy like in North America or elsewhere. They aren’t even interested in mindless majority rule. We want a democracy that keeps all involved satisfied. I posted a link to this in reply to Defasher.

As for the rest of ‘your’ points… none of us supports genocide, rulers, law, political parties, or other such nonsense. It’s really a question of whether these features are integral to civilisation.
