Fun fact: original version of monopoly was invented by a socialist to show people how shit capitalism is

It warms my heart that there are likely many people like Will who are taking direct action against the concentration camps, and we just aren't hearing about it

Still I am sad that we lost a kind anarchist

alternate title that is far too long

Anarchist gets tired of concentration camps and the half-measures taken so far against them, decides to burn it all down with jouissance, knowing that nothing good will come of it, is gunned down

Don't chimps and baboons have dominance hierarchies?

I dunno, I was asking you!

hierarchy will tend to breed resistance

I think that there is always resistance to hierarchy because hierarchy is dehumanising and people like to be uncompromised beings.

Yes there's a push and pull of forces. But currently we're in a situation where hierarchy will end with catastropic collapse and mass extinction, so there is that potential endgame.

typical relations of dominance and hierarchy common in primates

Which primates? I know more about the more cooperative ones.

Maybe humanity (or any particular section of humanity) will be flipping between the most prevalent arrangement being hierarchy to being egalitarianism and back every few thousand years or however long, for as long as humans exist

The vast majority of human history we lived in largely acephalous societies with built in mechanisms to prevent hierarchisation, as hunter gatherers, so far as I understand. So it's more like civilisation(s) emerged sometime around the last 10 000 years and has slowly been infecting the planet.
