What is FREEDOM?
If you are looking for the word FREEDOM in Agenda 21 you will not find it. The writers of Agenda 21 must have forgotten to put it in the document, you think.
- What is United Nations Agenda 21?
It is the United Nations plan for your future in the 21st century being implemented by the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development
- Is Agenda 21 a bad thing?
If you value freedom, liberty, private property rights and the American way of life in general, then it is a bad thing.
- How can this U.N. Agenda affect me, I’m an American?
The United States of America has adopted “Agenda 21” as policy for the future of our country. In 1992, then President George H. W. Bush swore your allegiance to the United Nations. In 1993 by executive order, then President William Jefferson Clinton established the President’s Council on Sustainable Development. Every government department was directed to establish sustainable development. Today it has all kinds of names like “Smart Growth” or “Shaping Our Future” or “Regional Planning” or “New Urbanism” or “Sustainable Development”. But no matter what the catchphrase is, what it really represents is Central Planning and Social Engineering.
- Why haven’t I heard of this before?
You may not have heard the words “Agenda 21” but you’ve both heard and experienced Agenda 21 policy already.
Agenda 21 is about control of your life. It is accomplished through adjusting your mind on social, economic and environmental issues over a long period of time. Everyone basically understands the environmental approach to control. Over a course of years you have watched environmental issues trump private property rights. But under Agenda 21 you will even see worse restrictions. The Supreme Court’s ruling against private property rights (June 23, 2005) is Agenda 21 at work. Explaining implementation of the social and economic issues is a little trickier. However, you have experienced political correct speech which is a tentacle of social control and social engineering. The most recent move regarding economic engineering is the blatant attack on Boeing. Under Agenda 21, economic engineering focuses on “localized entrepreneurialism”. Their goal is to discourage capitalism even going so far as recommending bartering for goods and services.
- Has the main-stream press covered this issue?
No, they are promoting Agenda 21 by not reporting. The majority of the media has become the marketing arm of the UN.
- What is the thought process that feels this Agenda 21 is justified here at home?
William LaJeunesse of Fox News reports: “Agenda 21 and its supporters around the country and world see as Agenda 21’s subtext that the United States has a history of environmental irresponsibility and needs to pay for that. Arguing that Americans have forfeited the rights to manage their own resources because they embraced urban sprawl, gas guzzling cars and unchecked consumption of resources, the U.N. says someone has to take over.” Further he reports: quote “The rate at which we are depleting the environment is so fast, if we actually hit the crisis we won’t be able to put the brakes on and stop,” says Vic Desotelle of the Sustainable Quality Alliance.” End quote.
- Is there justification for that accusation?
I suppose if you are a person who rules their life on emotion rather than fact, then you might deduce that we Americans are some kind of environmental exploiters. However, there is plenty of “factual” evidence proving none of that to be the case. Oh yes, we do enjoy our gas guzzling cars, our homes in the country and we allow ourselves enough water usage that we bathe once a day rather than once a week. But the Cato Institute will disagree with Mr. Vic Desotelle and do it with facts not supposition. In fact, if it weren’t for our capitalist society, most people of this world would never have driven a car or flown in an airplane. America is the most resource rich country in the world.
- If that is not the case, environmental calamity, then why has our government agreed to this scheme?
It seems the United States Government has agreed to the socialistic ideals of the United Nations since George Bush the first was elected President. He told us so in his “New World Order” speeches. Then when President Clinton was elected, that assured eight more years of agreement and a fast track toward our national alignment with “Sustainable Development” (Agenda 21). Of course let’s not forget Vice President Gore’s history of environmentalism, socialist leanings and his book, ‘Earth in the Balance’.
- How can our government do that? Nobody asked me if I wanted my life ruled by the United Nations. I don’t remember voting on that issue. I never heard the United States Congress debate the issue of us giving up our sovereignty.
I don’t know how they could do what they did, but they did. Seems the ‘democratic processes’ didn’t apply to this issue. You won’t like this but here it is: (House of Representatives – October 02, 1992) Mr. ENGEL. – – – Mr. Speaker, I move to suspend the rules and agree to the concurrent resolution (H. Con. Res. 353) expressing the sense of the Congress that the United States should assume a strong leadership role in implementing the decisions made at the Earth summit by developing a national strategy to implement Agenda 21 and other Earth summit agreements through domestic policy and foreign policy, by cooperating with all countries to identify and initiate further agreements to protect the global environment, and by supporting and participating in a high-level U.N. Sustainable Development Commission, as amended. CLICK HERE TO READ HR-353 Further: HON. NANCY PELOSI in the House of Representatives MONDAY, MARCH 29, 1993 Ms. PELOSI. Mr. Speaker, the Earth Summit provided the world with an unparalleled opportunity to build a global consensus around critical environmental issues. Implementation of the Earth Summit agreements is the key to the summit’s ultimate success.
Last year, the House passed the Earth Summit Environmental Leadership Act, which I introduced, along with all of the House delegates to the Earth Summit, upon my return from Rio. Today, I will introduce similar legislation, with 33 original cosponsors, to implement Agenda 21 and Senator Pell, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, will join me in introducing identical legislation in the Senate.
The Earth Summit Environmental Leadership Act outlines a comprehensive national strategy for sustainable development, in accordance with the principles of Agenda 21 , to be coordinated under the leadership of a specific office and the direction of a high-level government official. It also urges the United States to identify and initiate further agreements to protect the global environment, and for the President to report to Congress on progress toward achieving a national strategy to implement Agenda 21 .
It is critical that the United States set an example of sustainable consumption and production patterns. My legislation outlines a number of steps to attain this goal, including the elimination or reduction of subsidies for the exploitation of natural resources, and to design a policy framework for sustainable consumption patterns.
Environmental protection is not only a national issue; it is a challenge for every individual to make a difference. The principles embodied in Agenda 21 present a framework for environmental action that should be pursued at all levels of society–in our schools, local communities, governments, and in our lifestyles. The concept of sustainable development should be realized in all the major decisions affecting the future of our environment and the preservation of its species. The Hopi Indians practiced a land-use policy based on the 7th generation–that their relationship with the land would not have adverse effects on future generations of Hopis. We should attempt to do no less.
Senator Pell has demonstrated a forceful leadership on global environmental issues and I look forward to working in partnership with him on this important initiative to achieve sustainable development in the United States.
I urge my colleagues to join me in cosponsoring the Earth Summit Environmental Leadership Act to continue the progress of the Earth Summit.
- Okay, our government signed onto Agenda 21 in 1992 but we are still protected by the Constitution, right?
What is the Constitution going to do about HR-353 section(B) which directs: “(B) The United States Government should encourage and facilitate, at all levels of community and sectors of society, appropriate means for adopting individual Agenda 21 plans of action, including the establishment of local, county, State, business, and other boards and commissions for achieving sustainable development. Each member of the Congress should help initiate this process within their States or districts.” End quote. If people don’t stand up and demand their rights, it’s over.
- Yeah but that was a long time ago and a lot has changed. We have a new President Bush.
True but I’m afraid this President Bush is a “One World’ guy too. Like father, like son? Anyway our current President Bush agrees with Agenda 21 also, as his Under Secretary of State for Global Affairs, Paula Dobriansky, told a Brookings-Council on Foreign Relations on Thursday, May 23, 2002 – 12:00 p.m.-1:15 p.m. at The Washington Club, quote: “But if Johannesburg is to truly implement the international community’s new consensus, demonstrated in Monterrey, to effectively mobilize resources for sustainable development, it should produce compelling results, not merely high sounding rhetoric. We already have agreed upon Agenda 21 and the Millennium Declaration goals. The world community does not need to negotiate new goals or create new global bureaucracies.” Further she stated what we might take as the purpose: “The essence of the message from the United States — that the United States will carry to Johannesburg is that we must continue down the path laid out in Monterrey…”
- So this country has been wrapped up, tied with a fancy bow and handed to the America haters at the U.N. by Nancy Pelosi, and everyone else is in lock step?
Well I don’t know about that, but Ms. Pelosi certainly was one of the first in line to be a “change agent”. Someone who was ready to abandon American ideals for the UN’s ideals.
- What was that the other day, where the Supreme Court ruled against private property rights?
Our Founders knew that private property rights are the foundation of freedom: James Madison
March 29, 1792 on property:
This term in its particular application means “that dominion which one man claims and exercises over the external things of the world, in exclusion of every other individual.”
In its larger and juster meaning, it embraces everything to which a man may attach a value and have a right; and which leaves to everyone else the like advantage.
In the former sense, a man’s land, or merchandize, or money is called his property.
In the latter sense, a man has a property in his opinions and the free communication of them.
He has a property of peculiar value in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them.
He has a property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person.
He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them.
In a word, as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights.
Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions. Read Property Rights
- Okay, uncle, uncle. But how can this “Agenda 21” be so bad?
You’ve read where the President, by executive order, instituted “Sustainable Development”. You’ve learned that “Sustainable Development” and “Agenda 21” are the same thing. You’ve read where the U.S. Congress has stated “Agenda 21” is the policy of the land. Now there should be no doubt that the United Nations Agenda 21 is guiding our lives and this country at this very moment. I give you the Supreme Court ruling on property rights as proof. I give you “sustainable communities” across the globe as proof. I give you “Sustainable Sonoma County” as proof. I give you “Agenda 21 Santa Cruz” as proof. I give you Florida as proof. Agenda 21 is not the “Bill of Rights”. It is not “The Declaration of Independence”. And it is not the “U.S. Constitution”. It has never been decided on by the American people that “Agenda 21” should be our new bible. Our guiding light into the 21st century. It is being pushed on us by a bunch of self righteous elitist. It empowers those who agree and indoctrinates those who do not. And you are going to think you are having a bad dream when it comes into your home.
- What do we call these (I hate to use the word people) people doing this to our country?
Well, Michael Shaw has spent some time resolving that issue and here’s what he came up with.
As a political science major and later as a law student, the definition of, or nature of a soviet social system was never addressed. But years later when “stakeholder consensus councils” began to swarm Santa Cruz County, I began to evaluate the subject in earnest.
I know that the outcomes are pre-arranged because I attended many of these “stakeholder” meetings. My perspective always included addressing the consequence of the planned program on private property and individual autonomy. Without exception an attempt was made by the paid “facilitators” to disregard comments like mine.
The Definition of a Soviet:
- A soviet is a system of councils that report to an apex council and implement a predetermined outcome, often by consensus, affecting a region or neighborhood.
- Members of a soviet council are chosen by virtue of their willingness to comply with that outcome and their one-mindedness with the group
- Soviets are the operating mechanism of a government-controlled economy, whether it be socialism or government-corporate (“public-private”) partnerships
Change agents are working with opportunists and other foolish people by coordinating government, business, NGO, and “non-profit” partners to implement a soviet system in your county, too.
Watch Michael Shaw from Freedom 21. This is a 10 min. video well worth your time.
- The very worst thing about “Agenda 21” is, they are implementing it in an un-American way because it is anti- American. They know if we the people were asked to vote on it and ratify it by each state, it would never pass.
- They are all guilty. This is not about being a Democrat or a Republican it’s about being an American. Every elected official who is sneaking this past the citizens of this country is not worthy of calling themselves an American.
- There is no middle road here. You either support implementing Agenda 21 or you oppose implementing Agenda 21. Which flag is your flag?
AGENDA 21 FREEDOM 21
May GOD Bless the United States of America.
