The Delphi Technique. What Is It?

Be the 1st to vote.

Markus has talked a great deal about the Delphi method when changing people’s minds and creating consensus.

If this method is used fairly, and if our experts were chosen fairly and transparently regarding the coronavirushoax, then using the Delphi technique we’d be out of this war game simulation.

Here’s a doc showing (sort of) how the technique can be used for steering a crowd.

It also describes the diamond technique to manipulate a crowd.

Walmart setting the mask mark

Be the 1st to vote.

Is Walmart part of a state sponsored oligopoly to dictate social behaviour? Seems so.

Does corporate welfare count as socialism?

“The study estimated the cost to Wisconsin’s taxpayers of Walmart’s low wages and benefits, which often force workers to rely on various public assistance programs,” reads the report, available in full here.

“It found that a single Walmart Supercenter cost taxpayers between $904,542 and $1.75 million per year, or between $3,015 and $5,815 on average for each of 300 workers.”

How can Trump prove he’s real?

Be the 1st to vote.

We know Trump’s an actor. We know he gets his funding from the same old groups that fund everybody. Sometimes it seems like he’s on our side. What can he do to prove it to us? Is this story step in the right direction?

The Trump administration has ordered hospitals to bypass the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and send all Covid-19 patient information to a central database in Washington beginning on Wednesday. The move has alarmed health experts who fear the data will be politicized or withheld from the public.

Anything to bypass the old institutions is okay with me.

Another day, another mask story that ends badly

Be the 1st to vote.

This new religion, enforced with fear of death (the most powerful force out there), is going to cause much trouble for the non-conformers.

As much as I like to dissent, I realize that there is no time to explain my position in the fruit aisle. Best to be a Jesuit, and no matter how low, mimic and infiltrate the ranks of believers to remain anonymous and gather information.

This story is missing the anti-maskers name. The public, as usual, has the right to know who the cops shot.

I am not saying this is a real shooting, but the scenario is realistic.

Ontario’s police watchdog is investigating after officers fatally shot a 73-year-old man in Haliburton County on Wednesday morning. The man had refused to wear a mask and allegedly assaulted a grocery store employee before driving away, Ontario Provincial Police say.
