You raise a very intresting point. I do believe that western democracy has failed not only Romania but a lot of other countries in the curent political climate.
I actually belive in a concept quite close to what you write about in the Tiered Democratic Governance article called Decentralised Socialism which can draw many parralels to what you talk about.
I do belive that its time to get rid of the “car with 12 serious repairs” as you describe in your article. Thank you for the very insightful response!
