I agree with that one hundred percent and then some. Small, decentralized decision-making power is not only more responsive to the needs of a local
community, it is also a lot harder wfor large and oligarchic corporate mecahnisms to control. The smaller and more localized the decision-making power
the better---when you have a system like that in place, corporate power if often curbed right off the bat because you can institiute things like
government review of corporate charters (which used to be quite common in this country, and corporations were often dissolved when their charter
expired) and corruption is a lot less common because people will tend not to sell out their neighbors who know where to find athem and how to hold
them accountable. It's not a panacea, a lot of places would be run in ways I'd never want to deal with, but if that's the case you just move to
another community more in line with your own ideals.
