Somebodies and Nobodies initially diagnosed and named the malady of rankism. Rankism is what somebodies may do to nobodies. It is abuse and discrimination based on the power of rank. In this sequel to that bestselling title, Robert Fuller further explores rankism’s social and psychological costs and envisions the creation of a “dignitarian” society that disallows the abuse of rank. Unlike utopian and unfeasible egalitarian societies, a dignitarian society does not aim to abolish or equalize ranks. Instead, Fuller argues, post-rankist thinking maintains that regardless of our rank, we are all equal when it comes to dignity. His revolutionary, non-partisan approach sees the establishment of equal dignity as a stepping-stone to the fair, just, and tolerant societies that political thinkers have long envisioned.
