What kind of society is your band? Fully Democratic (everyone talks about what is going on. All decisions are completely unanimous). Somehat democratic (majority rules)? Or does one person control everything? Of course, I suspect most of us are somewhere in-between, so I could use some details. We're generally a majority rules type. Although if someone is adamant about a decision we'll go with him, unless there is an arguement, which we'll sort out. Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it is complex. But it works best with the personalities involved. Anyways, I think you see the point, so vote. BTW, this is research for an article I'm working on, so your honest assessment is appreciated. Thanks.
