An acephalous society (from the Greek for “headless”) is a society which lacks political leaders or hierarchies. Such groups are also known as egalitarian or non-stratified societies. Typically these societies are small-scale, organized into bands or tribes that make decisions through consensus decision making rather than appointing permanent chiefs or kings. Most foraging or hunter-gatherer societies are acephalous.
The Igbo Nation in West Africa is alleged to be an acephalous or egalitarian society.
An acephalous society is what I am interested in living after seeing the recent debate from our glorious acephalic leaders.
