Are Planners the Victims of a Dastardly Mind-Control Plot?

If you've ever led a public planning process you may be complicit in perpetuating a diabolical conspiracy to coerce Americans into accepting "a United Nations-run communist dictatorship in which suburbanites will be forcibly relocated to cities."

Tim Murphy reports on an information session on Agenda 21 presented at a recent closed-door meeting of Georgia's Republican caucus. Convened by (now-former) Georgia Senate majority leader, Chip Rogers, the four-hour (!) briefing was led by Field Searcy, "a local conservative activist who was forced out of the Georgia Tea Party in April due to his endorsement of conspiracy theories about the president's birth certificate and the collapse of World Trade Center Tower 7."

According to Murphy, "[a]bout 23 minutes into the briefing, Searcy explained how President Obama, aided by liberal organizations like the Center for American Progress and business groups like local chambers of commerce, are secretly using mind-control techniques to push their plan for forcible relocation on the gullible public:"

They do that by a process known as the Delphi technique. The Delphi technique was developed by the Rand Corporation during the Cold War as a mind-control technique. It's also known as "consensive process." But basically the goal of the Delphi technique is to lead a targeted group of people to a pre-determined outcome while keeping the illusion of being open to public input.

Rogers led efforts to block Agenda 21 from being applied in Georgia, following similar action taken by Kansas and Tennessee
