AbstractRonald Creagh, Deference : Postmodernity and Anarchist Dissidence The anarchist critique is not primarily aimed at people or organizations, but rather at the social structure, the system and the elitist mentality and hierarchical relationships that it reenforces. This critique aims to, on the contrary, reenforce different loyalties, other life styles and other types of behavior. The anarchists are not opposed to the state because it is not perfect or because it is controlled by a particular social class, but because the structural conditions necessary for its existence are unacceptable. To accept the idea that the state is inevitable is to accept the idea that the people are to be inevitably alienated from the decision making process. This is an epistemological bias that raises ethical questions, misperceives the phenomenon of postmodernity and falsifies understanding of decision making.
