Yes. As I have written at different times and in different contexts, smaller administrative units seem much better. At this point the larger state and huge federal system are completely removed from any,true, democratic input.

Local government should be the highest level of government. These smaller regional units should be part of regional and planetary alliances for specific issues and needs. We have most of that in place.

The new forms should be planetary biosphere and climate with regional subgroups and a truly planetary sentient rights judiciary with power. These things can no longer be allowed to local management. Local government could add rights and petition for planetary inclusion but they could, in anyway, infringe universal rights.
