Aspettative di Prestazione e Presupposti Taciti
Di Cayce Jamil. Originale pubblicato il 14 novembre 2019 con il titolo Tacit Consent and Performance Expectations. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.

Status Hierarchies: Tacit Consent and Performance Expectations
What keeps all different types of libertarian socialists together is the belief that minimizing hierarchy generates more freedom and equality. Nonetheless, hierarchy is a word etched in ambiguity.
