It would seem that there are no real opposing arguments for sustaining the current system.
anon thinks: " Powerless locals with no voice serve no one other than the employees of the councils and international who can operate without any accountability.
CORRUPT LOCALS with no voice, MINUS THE CORRUPTION, - is members / local power.
The same voice which would inevitabltly alter what you claim would happen as a result of sustainig locals---it checks & balances this quote of yours -- " international who can operate without any accountability.
Having 25k men under the umbrella means less representatuion no matter how centralized
anon thinks: " How can you claim to be in favor of democracy and support an undemocratic council? "
HENCE , IF THE COUNCIL IS UNDEMOCRATIC THEN WE THE " LOCALS " MUST STRAIGHTEN THEM OUT.
anon thinks: " I for the life of me cannot understand how anyone can promote the theory that you can have a democratic system in this union, without a democratic council.
BECAUSE THE COUNCIL HASN'T NOR REMOTELY EVER WAS IN THE PAST 16-20 YEARS DEMOCRATIC.
FIX THAT, FIX THE PRINCIPALS OF LOCALS AND WHAT PART THEY PLAY IN YOUR SECURITY.
