For a start, with proof-of-work you can be connected with 99 out of 100 nodes that lie to you, and you can still find the *true* chain.

No other approaches have the same degree of trustlessness.

At best, you could say there are separate niches for each of those approaches. But it shows more and more that approaches like for example quorum consensus simply regress to centralized solutions (see Ripple) because of efficiency vectors.
