I agree as well, but we will see. There is a difference between "own
little private council" and "own little private SECRET council". That's
a matter of personal trust in the "one single individual", to keep
things openly and known. We'll just have to start with a certain
confidence-credit, and then see how it works. Elections should/can be
re-done. There is a thing called "constructive distrust vote" in
Germany. Not that I would distrust anybody, but IMHO elected at large
directors should consider to subject themselves to such a vote (2/3
majority distrust against 1/3 trusted or something similar).
