Consent-oriented usage of Liquid Feedback

Consent is slightly different from consensus in the sense that we are not aiming to make everybody have the same opinion, but at least agree to allow certain proposals to move forward. In our model only a certain percentage of consent is necessary, so any individual who would like to veto a proposal needs to convince a percentage of followers in order to block it. This is less complex than having a judicial role decide whether a veto is legitimate (which in serious political situations would be abused).

This is a readable version of the Liquid Feedback configuration file that we are working on in order to implement consent-oriented decision making with a software that is otherwise known for majority voting.

P.S. The SQL syntax errors have been fixed. You may want to run our liquid feedback docker now.
