if you think "serious political discourse" will accept the use of the word "hierarchy" to mean "any act of violence whatsoever" then you're wrong, and i'm not surprised the only scholar you can find to agree with you is noam "what's anti-semitic about holocaust denial" chomsky, i mean, this is what happens when you fail to distinguish between power and authority

shoplifting as hierarchical? seriously?? so the fact the corporation possesses formal legal protection over its property and can have me arrested is incidental to the question???? so i have authority over corporations i guess. the fuck is wrong with you

i'm not having this conversation anymore because you've proven on multiple occasions that you're not really interested in listening to anything i say but if you think the definition of hierarchy you gave is the "classical" academic one then i'll just leave these links here

Hierarchy, in the social sciences, a ranking of positions of authority, often associated with a chain of command and control.

lmao you denied hierarchy had anything to do with a chain of command (which would predicated on the right of command, y'know) and when i used the word "authority" you asked me what it meant

why are you reviving threads that are almost a month old?

especially when you've tried to get all snooty about "giving me the last word" more than once

anyway when i defined hierarchy as a "chain of privilege, status, and command" you basically told me that was a dumb idea so i'm not sure what your point really is anymore. are you just arguing semantics for no reason or what? i mean if you aren't going to stick to your own definition then a semantic dispute is kind of pointless
