Summary/Abstract: After twenty years of post-communism, Romania can not be said that it has become a modern and strong state, and state weaknesses are evident, in that: the political and administrative structures are increasingly unworkable, due to bureaucracy and corruption, there is a lack a true political culture, with negative consequences in terms of promoting reform elites, there are promoted backstage games of great masters in this art, for the corrupt party bureaucracy personal and group interests, there is also a lack interest from the part of state authorities to new constructive approach so that staff and the public be a powerful barrier against any kind of change, etc. Every state must fight with all legal "weapons" for its existence and modernization, but any weakness of the state society can lead to disaster, especially under the circumstances of the dependencies determined by the evolution of globalization. The modern state is a strong state, harmonious and balanced, which should be a reflection of collective human wills, mobilized around a common vision, able to make a change in human society and build a new order, true and right. This study proposes a summary analysis of key features, in contrast, of a weak state and a strong state to compare them with the evolution of post-communist Romania, in order to identify and describe the premises which Romania has to provide in order to strengthen a state of law.
