Level 2:

Using the Delphi Technique to Achieve Consensus

Stuter, Lynn

1998, November 1


Delphi Method — Rand

RAND developed the Delphi method in the 1950s, originally to forecast the impact of technology on warfare. The method entails a group of experts who anonymously reply to questionnaires and subsequently receive feedback in the form of a statistical representation of the “group response,” after which the process repeats itself. The goal is to reduce the range of responses and arrive at something closer to expert consensus. The Delphi Method has been widely adopted and is still in use today.

So then what is the specific “Delphi Technique” that is being used at meetings to achieve consensus?

     Using the Delphi Technique to Achieve Consensus


Starting at the 7:05 mark, Rosa Koire, author of Behind the Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21, describes the Delphi Technique used at community meetings to attain consensus:

Here, again involving Rosa Koire, is a 6-part series of video showing the Delphi Technique in action.

An overview of the meeting depicted below:

    Citizens came together to anti-Delphi a public indoctrination session for ONE BAY AREA PLAN in the San Francisco Bay Area. A series of meetings are being held in all 9 counties to get ‘community buy-in’ for this regionalization of our area. ONE BAY AREA will erase local boundaries and impose a new framework of non-representative government on the more than 7 million residents of the SF Bay Area. The plan is to build ‘smart growth’ using our transportation tax dollars and restrict future development to specific locations. Social engineering designed to dictate where and how we live over the next 25 years will be imposed by directing the $200 billion in tax dollars only to cities that go along with the plan.
    Democrats Against UN Agenda 21, Post Sustainability Institute, the East Bay Tea Party, other local Tea Parties, North Bay Patriots, Santa Rosa Neighborhood Coalition, and other groups put aside political differences we may have and came together to anti-Delphi this meeting. Delphi is a mind control technique developed by the RAND Corporation in the 1960’s to manipulate groups of people to accept that plans presented to them were ‘their idea’ when in reality the meetings were managed to direct people to a pre-determined outcome unaffected by their input. This method is being used on us by our government and its consultants in these planning meetings.
