"The only efficiency to hierarchical structures is that they're more easily controlled *from outside*. If you're on the outside trying to gain control of a structure, hierarchical structures are more "efficient" at allowing you to grab them all at once. In every other way, distributed power is better. It's safer and smarter, more supple and sharper. Authority sucks." - mungojelly

"OK so let's imagine ourselves for a moment in an imaginary Anarchist world with no surgical training. This sucks, huh? Well, would you like to do something about it with me? This being an Anarchist society otherwise, no one can stop us. And I think there might just be other people around here who might recognize that the stipulated lack of surgical training is a problem-- we might even get some support. I'm motivated enough myself by how that's an interesting problem and how people will appreciate it and also in case I need some surgery myself. Pretty totally motivated. But if you don't want to help I'm sure there are plenty of other things to do, here in this imaginary Anarchist society. OK, now, back to real life, with the surgeons trained in this particular way by these particular institutions with this particular patronage. Do you feel relieved we have surgeons again? Or maybe more trapped in this particular way of having them? Because that's how I feel. :(" - mungojelly

"No, the downvotes are fair, you're on the wrong reddit. You're clearly looking to debate Anarchists. There *are* reddits for that, though I forget what exactly they're called. This reddit is for asking questions, sincere questions where you'd like information." - mungojelly

"> But I don't think any type of anarchism would allow for people to get rich from being a surgeon though. It depends what you mean by "rich" of course. It's fine under almost any Anarchist system for a surgeon to be very popular, and for everyone to like them and give them presents, and for them to have a very enjoyable life with lots of support and even lots of beautiful material things. The kind of richness that surgeons can't have under Anarchist systems is just the sort of richness that gives them the power to control people. Control people involuntarily, I mean! Most flavors of Anarchism would allow them a whole dungeon of people especially turned on by how they're a surgeon. They can have so many things! Just not that one disastrous evil toxic sort of power that's not very pleasant anyway!" - mungojelly

"> Monetary compensation is a representation of value. That's one story about money. That story is only superficially true. It's really mostly a representation of power. For instance if we gave surgeons vouchers that they could exchange for particular things and they could only use them themselves and not transfer them, then that would clearly give them all sorts of value, yet it wouldn't *feel* like money at all. It doesn't feel like money if it doesn't give you arbitrary power to control *any* person at random." - mungojelly

"> Okay, it's unrealistic because there would be no repercussions for violent acts. That's absurd. That's not even what you believe! You also talk about mob justice and lynchings and how that's unacceptable. So you know of course that acts have consequences under any system. You're saying that the consequences are messy somehow, or not the consequences you think they should be, or something, but I wish you'd say that instead of making me make your argument for you. :/ > NOT IN CHARGE OF THE CIVILIANS What us Anarchists propose is merely that this empty rhetoric be transformed into a practical reality. > If I had the answers to fix it, I would give them to you. But I don't. I do, here: /r/Anarchy101 We're actually trying to solve these problems, so we really do have excellent answers. You could ask us instead of just remaining willfully ignorant. Pardon my frustration. I do try hard to accept having this kind of conversation with statists perpetually, but it's just *particularly*..." - mungojelly

"> Elimination of police seems kind of unrealistic (but hey, shoot for the stars and you will at least hit the moon). You don't explain why you think it's unrealistic? I think it's very realistic and that your idea of giving particular people violent power over others without it being abused is clearly unrealistic. I'll explain why I think that's unrealistic: Human nature causes people to abuse power. Simple enough, eh? Your turn. > [...] as well as making commissioners publicly elected and chiefs elected by precinct, as in the civilians of the precinct elect the chiefs. If the local people are competent to select a chief, why aren't they competent to simply organize the process themselves without a chief, or with the *advice* of a chief rather than putting themselves under his command? What if the choice of a local people is to not have any police at all? What if the majority of people in an area select a racist chief-- you would give no voice at all to minorities???????????? > As..." - mungojelly
