Funny enough this came up recently in a private conversation and I was reminded of the ghost power of ... the deputy ministers.  They are unknown, unreplaceable and in all likelihood not the most forward thinking purveyors of institutional achievement.
The so called deepstate - the agents of THEY. 🙄

I will maintain that the basic institutions are still there and the system could be flipped positive without much more than a popular leader with good ideas.
I'm reminded of darker fictional characters like the Mule from the Foundation Trilogy and the Rainmaker from Looper.

Maybe it was easier to be the leader you describe in the past without so much media to distract and dilute their effect. Which these days is to yield bad leaders with populist ideals.
