Hierarchies are overrated. Bureaucracies are hierarchies. Hierarchies are Old World. We need to move beyond hierarchies to synergics.
Heirarchies are under-rated.
I'm not gonna buy the assertion that everyone thinks in heirarchies. I don't think of things in heirarchies.
But heirarchies are under-rated. They are a proven tool for organising systems, governments, churches, and, yes, bureaucracies. But just because a bureaucracy is heirarchical doesn't make their concept of a heirarchies bad. Being "Old World" shouldn't be a value-judgment either.
Heirarchies are a mature technology. Use where appropriate.
smooth space and striated. the intertwingular crystallises, is chipped away in places, dissolves elsewhere, persists around a central core. but to deny the co-existence and the ebb and flow (it's a polarity that's a polarity between 'polarised' and 'unpolarised') is to deny the possibility of Kuhnian revolution, of productive degeneration and reformulation.
