Further, such plans seldom indicate why the accepted goals were selected. If the planner is to be permitted to reject alternatives it must be because he has some knowledge or skill that provides a rational basis for such acts of rejection. This basis can be provided only by the values of the clients. Our contention rests on the thesis that goals are value statements, that value statements are not objectively verifiable, and, therefore, that the planner, by himself, cannot reasonably accept or reject goals for the public.
Some ends may be unattainable because of their generality, vagueness, or ambiguity. We do not assert that such ends do not have importance in value formulation, but an objectively measurable end must be deduced from them if a specific direction is to be given to planning means. Criteria are employed for choosing the best means to achieve stated ends. Only where criteria are stated in objective form can alternative means be reliably compared, with assurance that the means selected are directed toward the same goals.
