|Resource title||Is everybody happy?: Peace News explores some of the pros, cons and practicalities of consensus decision-making|
|Publication/ source||Peace News|
|Date published||June 1988|
|Summary text/ abstract||There are many ways for communities to make decisions and none of them is perfect. Many of us have been brought up in a culture which believes that western-style democracy is supreme, that one-person-one-vote is the only empowerment anybody needs. Yet, in the very nations which shout loudest about the virtues of democracy, there seems to be widespread disillusionment about its ability to change anything in a meaningful way. Democracy seems to be about electing an executive to take all the decisions and then re-appointing it every so often. For the majority of us, this delegation of our own power may not feel very different from someone flipping a coin.|
