Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That sounds likely, abolishing a hierarchy looks bad not only for those on top, but for all those who have invested in their position in it.

The beauty of abolition of labour as a goal is that it can be approached step by step by shortening the work year/week/day, and while that is going on the relative position in the heirarchy are to a large extent kept while everybody who are employed benefits materially form the shorter time spent working. But that beauty is also its weakness, it does not work well as a rallying cry for revolution and is not suited for taking advantage of a crisis of capitalism.
