Right. Seems like that should never be the case where one person (country) can build the rest hostage.

The issue is, every country basically has to agree that they would come to the defence of everyone else. If it was just something like a majority vote, you'd have instances of countries being forced to defend countries that they didn't agree to defending, which could result in the alliance falling apart in the outbreak of conflict.

Currently Turkey has the second largest military in NATO so they probably provide more security than they receive.
