For me, the key point in response to this question is the limit on how much can be done with rules. The question is more or less about abrule. How many people must object for the objection to stand? Being clear about how decisions are made is vital. Rules and processes, when well written and understood, can bring that clarity. What they can't do is create a community or consensus mindset. Consensus or consent decision-making is about culture, communication and relationship. At the end of the day, if any person wants to use rules as the power to stop (or start) something, it is a sign that the culture of consensus needs some help. Good consensus or consent is driven by foundational beliefs and values. It requires a sense of safety, the experience of being fully heard and understood, trust in the community as a whole. It's hard for us Americans to live that. We need help reminding ourselves from time to time. Also, new members will need orientation on this and help settling in. In the meantime, yes there are fabulous structures that can help us with that. Sociocracy, Non-Violent Communication, Imago Relationships, many other bits and pieces that have been mentioned. Just know that those structures alone will not be enough if people treat them like rules for claiming power rather than as tools for caring for one another in community.
