Koalition statt Konkordanz
This NZZ article from historian Thomas Meissen is a mindgame about whether the Swiss political system should be changed from concordance to coalition or opposition. 

One reason is that the biggest party of Switzerland, the right-wing SVP / UDC would be more pressured to realize their demagogic rhetoric:

"Die SVP müsste uneingeschränkte Verantwortung für die Folgen einer demagogischen Politik übernehmen und dazu das tun, was sie gerade bekämpft: einen starken, teuren Staat schaffen, der zum Beispiel eine überdimensionierte Milizarmee aufrechterhält, Agrarsubventionen finanziert und diese aussenpolitisch verteidigt."


"Doch die EU, die USA, supranationale Gerichte und andere ausländische Partner werden künftig wenig Rücksicht nehmen auf eine Regierung, die sich hinter den Zwängen der Direkt- und Konsensdemokratie versteckt. Wer seine eigenen Angelegenheiten nicht verantwortungsbewusst selbst anpackt, wird stets als äusseren Zwang empfinden, was zeitgemässes Handeln ist."
