The Delphi Technique at Codex
The Delphi Technique was created to give a facilitator tools that would ensure control of the outcome of a group decision manipulating the group to think it was participating in the making of that decision. The Delphi Technique only works if the facilitator is able to destabilize anyone who might think independently of the group. To make Delphi work the group must not be permitted to align with a natural leader who could challenge the ideas of the facilitator. Other aspects of implementing Delphi are to ask questions that divert the group away from core issues that many people might be concerned about. And, lastly, the group is driven to achieve "consensus" rather than voting on the issues. If a strong member of the group votes against the facilitator that person may sway the group, therefore, the facilitator manipulates the group into thinking consensus is being reached. Of course, facilitators always manage to manipulate the consensus to their own ends. I was unfamiliar with this psychological manipulation method until I went as a delegate to the meeting of Codex Alimentarius in Bonn.

death by modern medicine by dr. carolyn dean(one of my favourite people!). 110, 000 people a yr. in america die from getting just what the doctor ordered. 784, 000 people a yr. die from modern medicine. that's nearly 8 million americans dead due to 'health care' in the last decade. a veritable holocaust.
there has been a VERY heated battle seething beneath all these headlines. the 'liberal'(HAHA!) media has barely touched the issue. why?

this very technique is used HEAVILY here on ATS by agents of the corporate cabal. you WILL conform. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. ...or so 'they' would have you feel. frickin' arrogant thought police.
The first amendment "does not intend to guarantee men freedom to say what some private interest pays them to say for its own advantage. It intends only to make men free to say what, as citizens, they think."
-- Alexander Meiklejohn, educator and philosopher 1872-1964
The powerful sounding words in state constitutions ("all political power is inherent in the people"), corporation codes, chartering mechanisms, old judicial charter revocations ("The life of a corporation is, indeed, less than that of the humblest citizen," NY State Court of Appeals, People v North River Sugar Refining Co., 1890), endless regulatory and administrative laws, July 4th oratory about democracy and ceaseless propaganda in general make it seem that we the people are in charge.
Who is responsible for such usurpations? Who must answer? Legislators, executives and judges, attorneys general and secretaries of state are to blame for corporate exterminations, demolitions, annihilations, slaughters, eradications, liquidations and extinctions of people's fundamental human rights, and of the species, places and biological systems which logically follow.
Uninsured U.S. children face a higher risk of developmental delays than those with health coverage (Hidden Costs, Value Lost: Uninsurance in America, Institutes of Medicine: National Academies Press, 2003)
The industry often is divided into categories such as life/health and property/casualty. Life insurance dominates the mix, making up about 60 percent of all premiums

Nice inputs from all.
We all need to focus and remember: People created government and are the parents of government. Government is the creator of Corporations and is the parent of corporations.
The scam to the medical industry is quite simple. The human body will take of itself in 90% of all cases. You don not need the doctor or anybody else.
And the drug companies can't patent plants
As President Clinton talked about Federal Health Control, our medical costs were rising at better than 10%. Its now been 12 years at 10% each year. And government has done nothing to control it in hopes that it would become so costly to us that the only option would be government control in the future. And it is becoming true. I'm one of those uninsured and dread the thought of becoming ill, especially with the new bankruptcy rules.
As to the Federal Reserve, can you prove its religious overtones?
I find it interesting that it can charge the US government for every dollar it makes and everyone of those same dollars get into "circulation" by someone have to borrowing the money. THE FRS collects twice plus interest.

Question: Corporations equate to Capitolism. As such, is Capitolism wrong or should it be controlled by the "state"?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
