Agenda 21 and the Transformation of America
By Jerry A. Kane
The United Nation’s Agenda 21 has not attracted the attention of many Americans, but ignorance is not bliss when it comes to this George Soros-funded/Maurice Strong plan for world government. Agenda 21 uses the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) to make agreements directly with local governments, bypassing Congress.
ICLEI has received funding from Soros’s Open Society Institute, the Tides Foundations’ Apollo Alliance, and Van Jones’ Green for All. It is deeply entrenched in America through a network of local governments from more than 600 American cities, towns, and counties, which are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create sustainable communities.
In addition, ICLEI is the major driving force behind “smart growth” and “green initiatives” projects and the domestic leader on climate protection and sustainable development for local governments.
[Sustainable development] “must be accomplished at the local level if it is ever to be achieved on a global basis.”
The problem is that local government officials are blindly acquiescing to ICLEI’s sustainable development policies, which have been set up to eliminate private property rights.
“Land… cannot be … controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership … contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole.”—Preamble to Agenda Item 10 of the Conference Report from the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat I), Vancouver, BC, May 31 – June 11, 1976
Agenda 21 was drafted as a white-paper at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and it outlines the UN plan for sustainable development in 21st century.
“The objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity.”
Agenda 21 targets the following unsustainable activities for elimination by 2030:
- Private property rights (property ownership)
- Irrigation, pesticides, and commercial fertilizer
- Livestock production and most meat consumption
- Privately owned vehicles and personal travel
- Fossil fuels for power generation or mechanized travel
- Single family homes
- Most forms of mineral extraction and timber harvesting
- Human beings (Reduce world population below 1 billion)
On June 9 the Ruler bypassed Congress and signed Executive Order 13575, pledging millions of dollars in grants and committing thousands of federal employees from 25 federal agencies to introduce and implement Agenda 21 programs in rural areas and local communities.
[E.O. 13575] “establishes unchecked federal control into rural America in education, food supply, land use, water use, recreation, property, energy, and the lives of 16% of the U.S. population.”
EO-13575 will erode U.S. sovereignty and empower international bodies and U.N. bureaucrats through sustainable development and the Agenda 21 program, where decision making is predicated on “global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.”
Agenda 21 will replace the free market system with Private Public Partnerships (PPPs) or corporate cronies. In other words, the government will reward some businesses and punish others.
The program will affect the way Americans “live, eat, learn and communicate.” Its overreaching regulations will monitor, regulate, and restrict water, electricity, transportation, healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production, and consumption.
“[T]here is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn’t fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21.”
“No one would be free from the watchful eye of the new global tracking and information system.”
Primarily, Agenda 21 is a globalist plan designed to destroy unalienable rights, constitutional law, national sovereignty, and the middle class in order to erect a socialist world government ruled by an oligarchy of elitist progressives.
“Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by every person on earth. … [I]t calls for specific changes in the activities of all people. … Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all humans, unlike anything the world has ever experienced.”
Fortunately, many citizen and Tea Party activists across the country have weighed the consequences of standing idly by while overreaching regulations supplant their freedoms and liberties and erode their rights to own property. They are now imparting information exposing the Agenda 21 plan and demanding that their towns and cities withdraw membership and sever ties with ICLEI.
But it won’t be easy to defeat Agenda 21 because not enough people care that their country is being fundamentally transformed by a socialist scheme designed to redistribute their wealth, confiscate their property, cram them into small living areas adjacent to public transportation hubs, and sterilize them to reduce world population. Ignorance will be no excuse when the American Dream is in pieces on the ground.
