The Georgia state Republican Party seems to think that Obama is hatching a nefarious plot to destroy the suburbs and the entire concept of private property:
Georgia state Senators held a meeting last month to discuss Agenda 21 . . . a nonbinding UN agreement aimed at promoting sustainable development. It is also the target of conservatives who believe that it is part of a conspiracy to [deny private property rights and] forcibly move suburbanites to cities.
[According to the meeting's leader,] Obama, local chambers of commerce and liberal groups will try to accomplish this through a form of mind-control: "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."
