    Is hierarchy in work and society there so you can keep on striving for the carrot dangled in front of you? So you get motivated to do well at work or run your business, so you can get promoted (eventually perhaps to board level though this is rarely the case due to the few places available.) Or become wealthy/rich?

    Hierarchy exists because someone has to tell everyone what to do.

    Ironic. Ants are dumber than humans but they don't need leaders to organise themselves.
    Whoever negged me should ask any entomologist about the above assertion. It's true. Ants have no leaders. neither do slime molds.

    That. Society is simply more efficient that way. Hierarchic societies survived to these days because they were fitter. Nothing more to it.
