"I'm inconsistent in my views, and accept hierarchy in that if I like it."

Anarchists, every Goddamn time.

The only solution to Capitalism isn't your Utopianism. It's to develop a class consciousness and let the workers rule themselves. Free from states, free from law, free from tax.

No. Anarchism is about abolishing unjustified hierarchies of domination and exploitation.

It would be best if all hierarchies are abolished but practically in some cases it might be needed.

I know plenty of cooperatives that have elected managers, and they rotate them every week. So every worker becomes a manager at some point, and they all discuss things.

Authority can be kept in check if there is democracy and the hierarchy is temporary.

The FAI zones in Catalonia operated on something like this. Some farms were managed like this, where groups of 10 worked on a farm and they rotated their leaders to avoid them entrenching in their authority.
