Lesson Three:220.127.116.11: What are the advantages and disadvantages of consensus as a decision-making model for government? (PADM) "True consensus is built through talking, listening and considering different ideas until a new understanding takes place, and the decision makers come to"one mind" about what to do. Everyone must have voice. Everyone has their own stories, their own perspectives-gifts they bring to the process that create balance. No one is left out." From and interview with Norma General, Elder of the wolf Clan, Cayuga Nation, May 2007.
