YOU ARE BEING DELPHI’D
This meeting is designed to manipulate and direct public opinion to approve the
One Bay Area Plan
The Delphi Method is being used to create the illusion that this is your plan and that you have some part in crafting the outcome. This is a technique developed by the RAND Corporation in the 1960’s which is used by meeting facilitators to block opposition and discard opinions that do not support their plan. This propaganda
method uses peer pressure to shame and silence you.
ONE BAY AREA is being used to regionalize the SF Bay Area and erase the city, county, and ultimately, State boundaries. Your transportation tax dollars will be used to build apartments and condos in designated areas of your city---and nowhere else. Your money will directed to favored developers building stack and pack housing. You are losing the ability to direct your elected officials through this plan to destroy local representation. This is happening across the US. There are now 11 Mega Regions designed to replace States. Northern California is one of the Mega Regions (it includes part of Nevada), with over 48,000 square miles and 15 million residents.
ONE BAY AREA is UN Agenda 21
