    “It seems to me that, if the main purpose of norms is to protect people’s rights, then the Consensual Model is better. Rights, especially property rights (which all other rights boil down to) are more secure when they cannot be outvoted by a majority. Consensual systems are democratic in a market sense – people buy what they want, and the firms that provide what they want survive and thrive. Those that can’t fail, and release resources to those that can.”

    Well said, as always.
