3 advantages of consent-based decision making
> In consent, we ask “do you object?”
> With consent, individuals will not have as much power as they have in decisions requiring unanimity. On the other hand, with consent, a majority will not have power over a minority.
I'm skeptical about the conclusion
Would you be interested in me expanding on my skepticism? (probably starting with counter examples)
@davidbruant It's the difference between the following:
1. Expressing a personal preference in a consensus situation (which could lead to a veto of the proposal by a minority)
2. Expressing an personal preference, but no actual objection, in a consent situation (which means the proposal goes through)
It's one of those things you probably need to witness or be part of to 'get'. Hence my suggestion that people come along to workshops.
