See http://justcomm.org/jc-faq.htm#Q6.5 -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- I really appreciate that Diana raised the following point. " Further to Melanie's question, there aren't "blockers" in sociocracy because there is no process for blocking. There are what are called "objections" to proposals, but these are concerns, not blocks, and are meant to be resolved. In sociocracy the bias is to move forward by meeting community goals and consenting to proposals." There is a tendency to use closed fists to represent blockers or objectors. However, when we look at objections through a sociocracy or consent lense, we find that objections are a reasoned gift to help up work toward aims. Maybe, instead of using a closed fist, It should be an opened hand. Thanks, Chris Terbrueggen Linden Cohousing Madison , WI
