One of my arguments for anarchy is that power abuse can only be eliminated by eliminating power "on paper" itself.
But maybe I am wrong and there exist other ways to prevent power abuse without getting rid of power "on paper". If it's the case then what are them? I assume realistic answers, not based upon ideal politicians, who never abusing the power due to their characters.
What are the most notable ways of preventing power abuse without eliminating power "on paper" among philosophers? What philosophers have already said on this topic?
Power "on paper" - power established via laws and documents.
Power abuse - usage of power (given by others/society) to act in the way one is not supposed (in theory, by others/society) to.
Anarchy - the social system that rejects power "on paper".
