There are independent decision-makers in every democracy.  And the
Constitution does give the developers by way of general resolution power
to override any decision made by a delegate, including a DAM, which is
more power over independent decision-makers than most democracies give.

I hope that the NM procedure makes sure every new developer knows the
basic ideas of the Constitution.

The current Constitution was accepted in a general vote according to
its own provisions.
