Do We Need Hierarchies?

A guy named Sig talks about why we don't need hierarchies in companies, and a friend of his challenged him with a few objections...

* Hierarchies are the natural, programmed organizational model hard-wired into our brains. Other models are not intuitive the way a hierarchy is to an average person.

Explain colors with a hierarchy. Explain the crop cycle, the water cycle, the weather, with a hierarchy. "Intuitive" is not where hierarchies live.

* Without hierarchies, how can you escalate issues?

Involve more and more people. Exactly the system Jesus suggested for resolving disputes. Bring the issue to the other party; if they won't resolve it with you, bring a friend, then more friends, finally, everyone related. Jesus didn't allow a hierarchy in his system for resolving disputes.
