(*A*narchie) (anarchism in the postive sense and as far as power
relations are concerned).

a broad consensus. In particular I understood the term domination
(Herrschaft) quite differently than most leftists. Nonetheless I
thought and still think that this is a *very* important field we
definitely need to *understand* if we talk about anything like
society. This is why I invented a new term which is less prone to

Today I'm not sure of what a OHA system is actually but I know it at
least helps regulation in groups of people of any size. It has a lot
to do with power relations, culture (in the sense of things commonly
done without being much questioned), organization, finding decisions,
