As you aptly stated in your last post on the previous page....when first I saw this video...I thought it just plain stupid.
This "Educated, Intelligent , Sophisticated Individual" thought he was breaking bad and teaching us a lesson along with it's accompanying guilt. That this educated cultured intelligent individual was sitting on the only one in town.
I thought it was neither intelligent sophisticated nor educated...but very self serving and vitriolic...also showing poor character to go after a serving woman..and not the manager...or higher up.
It was the same thing with the Kiss a thon or whatever they were supposed to do on that Friday. Very immature and self serving ..and it too backfired.
Now...when I see leadership going along with this kind of nonsense..I quickly see how our leaders too fall in the same category of stupid and they want to make all of us in this manner.
Concerning the Delphi Technique..
I call it just good old fashioned peer presure, its been around forever. Whether it is used in the play room or the board room, its still the same thing.
I have only recently become aware of the Technique...and to my astonishment is is being used in many cities at town hall meetings to give the appearance of public consensus or consent on issues.
This caused me to look closely at election techniques...political rallies as well as the news media for this technique.
It can also a type of bullying
....which politicians and leaders claim to be against...even on local issues.
Although I did not know anything about the Delphi Technique..I have noticed that for people in favor of free speech ...on many college campuses ...they are anything but free speech and have been this way for years now.
Dissenting views are often shouted down so as to never be heard.
In it's own way ..I see the MSM taking this tack today...resulting in the circus we see..tabloid journalism.
So to with leadership/politics.
There is more to it for which I am thinking but this will have to suffice for now.
