Most abstract is modes of ruling, not modes of domination
Mouzelis advocated modes of domination as the primary concept of political living. I argue elsewhere that dominating is merely one way of ruling: ruling is more abstract than dominating.
Other means of ruling are habit (a greatly ignored way of living), indifference (ditto), feeling represented, & being led. (An attempt at an exhaustive list will be offered later.) Recognising these different means helps us break with the unnecessarily confining force-consent/domination-hegemony conception.
