An existing platform (Kialo) for Asgardians to be able to decide collectively on critical issues  

Today I came across the Kialo platform.  It allows for debate guided by reason; users can input their pros and cons for all to see and comment against.  As such it could supplement the Asgardia Forum and speed up the process of decision-making by offering reasonable pros/cons for decisions we might make.

For example, the Universal Basic Income topic that is trending now as a top Asgardia blog already has a counterpart in Kialo: https://www.kialo.com/universal-basic-income-is-the-future-1634/1634.0=1634.1/=1634.1 .  Check that link for a nice public example of what the platform can do.

Only downside at this time is that membership on a Kialo discussion cannot be restricted to just Asgardians.  I signed up and tried creating a test team that would allow this in the future but that functionality isn't available yet.

Still I believe it might be a good platform to either adopt or seek to emulate for the purpose of speeding up collective decision-making within Asgardia.  This is one of the things I am actively campaigning for on my blog posts.

Indeed, this is good! 

Easy to see and follow voting and comments. People you have short video presentation of this platform. Check it.

It is better to have a mixed vote (decision) from 100k people then 1 wrong vote (decision) from a minister.
So i voted yes, but in the end it would need an additional decision.
