My view is that authority natural, rational, logical and necessary. Life without authority is impossible, undesirable, nasty, brutish and short.
The only way to argue that authority and rationality are opposed to each other is to start with the false premise that everyone is equal. Not "equal before the law" equal, but equal in an "interchangeable with each other" way.
If a person is incapable of supporting himself, it’s illogical – and just plain mean – to demand that he be allowed to live without authority.
