@Korsier @aral yes, but I think that's partly the point: the amount of Democratic participation is minimal and very broad: there are lots of reasons to vote for e.g. Boris, but that doesn't make the voting block homogenous. Those diverse views could be better represented with more decentralized governance (hopefully).
@Korsier Yes, that is exactly my point (also, they are “democractically” elected – the meaning of that term being pliable – but Trump, for example, did not win the popular vote.)
@aral By using the term "democratically" elected are you suggesting that these leaders (or at least their parties) did not get a majority of the vote? For a democracy to work the losing side has to accept the will of the electorate.
