Interesting stuff, but how do you avoid power?

Well, i returned, read a few more posts, and now I want to ask - what is it about syndicalism, direct democracy etc that will stop the slide toward the centralisation of power in the hands of the elite?

Wherever a persons asks someone else to take care of something (like making roads, hospitals, wahever) there will be people gladly lapping up the power you give them.

where are the 'checks and balances' which would save a stateless socialist country from tyrrany? They never stopped America from ditching its constitution and bill of rights
