I was at a discussion about anarchism yesterday. A few questions about the need for leaders. One was "what about if there was a serial killer.. surely you’d need a leader to take control, surely?" Fair question about how does macro organisation occur, but the repetition several times of ‘surely’ was really interesting. Like capitalist realism, but for hierarchy. Seemed ingrained that a need for hierarchy is self-evident, that there is no alternative. Spanish Civil War was the end of history.
