Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What you say suggests that communes need to be eliminated, as they are no longer the relevant administrative unit.

Which is of course impossible as long as politicians have jobs anc prestige that they want to keep. Thus the indiract way around this, by creating new roles that slowly take over roles.

In the case of _communautés urbaines8 I think that people understand reasonably well how they work, and there is a balance in that typically the main city will represent about 50% of the overall population and thus there is a natural balance between the core and the suburbs.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
