^ Agreed. Especially under the rulership of the current Praetor who is unusually fair and balanced.
One thing about Romulan political culture is that the crazy radical people in the elite have mostly been knocked out of the game, mostly by assassination by one faction or another. The Romulan people, for their part, seem decidedly uninterested in further great risks.
It could be that the shocks of the past few years have shifted Romulan political norms to a new normal, a more peaceful and cooperative normal.
