Peace and Concensus

Peace begins with concensus - not rule by the majority or levels of authority. In a school for peace the foundation should be based on decision making by a team of individuals who rule by concensus. When everyone is satisfied with a decision before it is implemented, the project will have true support. In rule by the majority only fifty-one percent of those voting are invested in the outcome of the decision. They have been "forced" to accept a path they don't believe in or support so the conflict continues.
