I should note that most often, the standard reaction to even mentioning “Agenda 21” in casual company, tends to elicit blank stares, and a bit of a confusion as to why it is such a bad thing. It requires a thinking mind, real consideration and an understanding of human nature, but once properly understood, it is a horrifying plan to anyone that believes in private property rights, the sanctity of life, and liberty.
I am seeing it here in Traverse City. A “Grand Visioning” has been going on with the classic group manipulation tool set of ‘consensus’ building to make a more ‘perfect community that is ‘liveable,’ and ‘sustainable,’ etc..” As a county commissioner, I have had an opportunity to speak up about what it is, but I must say, there are only a couple of us who understand what Agenda 21 is.
Myself, and another board member, a dedicated socialist, understand what it is. We simply have different desires with regard to our liberties. I happen to enjoy, cherish and respect mine.
Agenda 21 and related programs will eliminate many things we hold dear. These have been declared “unsustainable” and will be abolished. Here are some of them:
- All private property rights (property ownership)
- All forms of irrigation, pesticides & commercial fertilizer
- Livestock production and most meat consumption
- Privately owned vehicles and personal travel
- Use of fossil fuels for power generation or mechanized travel
- Single family homes
- Most forms of mineral extraction and timber harvesting
- Human population must be reduced to fewer than 1 billion people
It’s not coming from Washington D.C. or state legislatures for the most part. It is seeping in through local city and county governments. Agenda 21 brings with it stealthy code words, comforting words such as “smart growth,” “social justice,” “bio-diversity,” and “sustained development.” You will hear them often. Translated these terms effectively mean total environmental dictatorship and the elevation of the pagan practice of the worship of Mother Earth. Not a joke.
179 countries, including the United States, initially signed on to the Agenda in 1992. Many more have joined since then. It is already in progress in 600 U.S. cities.
