  2. American Federal System: States have authority on higher level (e.g. own law)

    17.9%
  3. British System: States are sovereign countries in a loose federation with hardly any centralization

    28.2%
  4. Balkanisation: I don't believe in Federalism let everyone go his own way

    How would the states work when Barre created them for his own agenda? For example a unified Mudug will never be a viable state

    Centralization is the only way to make rapid changes. Look at China and Rwanda for example. We can federalize in a few decades when we get more prosperous if that is what people want at that point. Somalia may look big on a map but most of the population lives in a few cities and towns, central authority would work best

    You are right but the same can be said about the current federal member states. We should let the people decide. Let them vote. For example Buuhoodle. Let them vote if they want their government in Laascaanood (Sool) or Burco (Togdheer).

    When you say Mudug I think that you mean Gaalkacyo. That city will never see peace as long as Puntland and Galmudug are fighting over it. If you give the residents the option without outside interference then I think that united government can be formed in Gaalkacyo.
