Can A 'Group' Take A Decision? If No, How Can Democracy Work?

I've experienced on several occasions that a 'group' cannot take a decision. When a group to arrive at a sensible decision a well-informed leader with good intentions is a *must*. While this point itself is debatable, I wish to know whether we have CEans who agree with this. If a group can't decide - how can 'democracy' really work which bases itself on 'group decision making'.

PS: Am I clear enough in my argument?

    I agree, most often a group needs a leader or guide that assists in the process for the group to be effective. To be more fair, this individual could either not have a vote or not be able to table an idea. Their main role is to moderate, make sure all are heard and keep the group on track and topic.
