ELI5 justified hierarchy? Like pseudo-laws or something?

Like 'voluntary' positions of power. They usually say it's justified as long as the power is given to the person freely by the people. Which of course is no different than liberalism except perhaps it's (temporarily) contained to a smaller scale (community leaders vs national leaders). But all power corrupts so it'll rapidly degrade into a bureaucratic nightmare.

Except they also view relationships like parent-child as non-voluntary justifiable hierarchies, which opens the door to all the other paternalistic forced hierarchies. ie. all the liberal ones.

Yeah that's another common one they always bring up. Any others you can think of?
