> the labyrinthine process used in Renaissance Italy to elect a Doge

I was very disappointed to learn that Italy did not, in fact, elect a Shiba Inu to office.

And worse, this process concerned only the Serenissima (i.e. the area ruled by Venice), not the entire Italy.

The comparison doesn't really make any sense - in what way is the Doge election protocol comparable to semver? It also seems weird to call something bad by comparing it to an election protocol that has been shown to be incredibly robust and was used in a prosperous city state that was successful for a very long time.

Yeah, I didn't get it either. It feels to me like he had this Italian election analogy in his pocket and couldn't wait to use it. It feels very forced.
