In his groundbreaking book Somebodies and Nobodies, Robert Fuller
identified a form of domination that everyone has experienced but
few dare to protest: rankism, abuse of the power inherent in rank
to exploit and humiliate someone of lower rank. It plays a role in
just about every form of social oppressionNracism, sexism,
homophobia, and religious intolerance all have a significant
element of rankism in them.Most everyone has felt the sting of
rankism--at the hands of a dictatorial boss, a condescending
teacher, an arrogant doctor, or an imperious bureaucrat. But,
equally, most everyone has inflicted it on someone of lower rank.
That we are, all of us, both victims and perpetrators of rankism
mandates a novel, multifaceted strategy for confronting it.Fuller
isn't proposing that we do away with rank--without it organizations
become dysfunctional. He's not advocating an egalitarian society
where all are equal in rank but rather a dignitarian one where all
are equal in dignity: a society in which rankholders are held
accountable, rankism is shunned, and dignity is broadly protected."
