I've heard criticisms about local democratic control, that it leads to small minded closed communities that won't address non-local issues (e.g. climate emergency, exploitation, capitalism).
I feel that it would go well if expanded, with appropriate structures in place (e.g. citizens assemblies).
Is this blind faith or are there some decent resources that can shed some light?
I can imagine there are specific examples of it working (or not), but I wonder about a more general analysis.
