At the moment, democracy is all about bullying and domination. https://notthebee.com/article/sit-back-and-enjoy-as-political-operatives-who-started-publicizing-an-enemies-list-disappear-their-own-list-after-getting-a-little-bit-too-much-publicity
Hierarchies have levels of authority. When a level has the power to be the last word, you can call it dominance, especially if you don't like the word I don't see that going away any time soon. Doesn't mean I think it's all good since there are always pros and cons to be debated or that it's the only option. I do find it hard to understand a structure where there is no final power that can decide things we don't like. That would be anarchy.
