    "I counter-propose something ..."

    In that kind of culture, why do you ask whether you should do the right thing when you (as far as I can tell from your writing) can predict that you won't get any useful answer?

    It's better to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

    Exactly when that approach can be used without bad repercussions is obviously extremely situation dependent (and a key point is that you need to actually succeed, not just make shit up and do whatever you want), so start with small, safe things and work your way up.
