Politics of Dignity: Robert Fuller

Rankism is a term coined by physicist, educationalist and citizen diplomat Robert W. Fuller. Fuller has defined rankism as: "abusive, discriminatory, or exploitative behavior towards people who have less power because of their lower rank in a particular hierarchy". Rankism also describes the abuse of the power inherent in superior rank, with the view that rank-based abuse underlies many other phenomena such as bullying, racism, sexism, and homophobia. Wars, torture and other acts of violence are usually based on rankism. For more information visit UCTV, Robert Fuller: Politics of Dignity
