This is why God gave us a hierarchical and authoritarian Church. Most people, even very good and wise people, are content to be told what to do and be. This is natural for human beings and it is why we function best in hierarchical environments, be it at work or in the military or police or medical field. Order and authority, rightly oriented and rightly guided, is one of the most powerful forces for the benefit of human society. De-centralization only leads to disorder.
