Is there a collection of more examples of some of the key points of Integral? As far as I remember of the KW books I have read, there is only one example KW uses when writing about how it is important to distinguish between oppressive hierarchies and natural hierarchies. For the natural, non-oppressive hierarchies, the example is: atoms -> molecules -> cells -> … organisms -> … -> communities, etc.
I agree that many people at green get carried away with trying to reject hierarchy, but I think a lot of those people could acknowledge that organisms are made of cells, which are made of molecules, which are made of atoms, and that this is some type of hierarchy (haven’t asked anyone that I got the hierarchy-rejecting vibe from, though).
What are some good examples that show more clearly where the line is between oppressive and non-oppressive hierarchies which are less obvious / closer to the line than atoms, molecules, etc, on the one hand vs the caste system on the other?
I might have noticed other cases where it would be nice to have a variety of examples to use, but I do not remember them now. Please feel free to add other points that could use more examples. I will add if I remember.
