What’s the Reality with Agenda 21? Part 1

June 4, 2013 at 8:36 AM

You may or may not have heard about Agenda 21. Chances are good that if you have heard of it, you may have heard about it from the perspective of the “Alex Jones Conspiracy theory.” That may have been enough to keep you from doing your own investigation on the subject. The subject really deserves your attention though.

This will be a two-part series to explain first, what Agenda 21 is all about and how it originated, and second, determine if it truly is having an impact on society as we know it. I want to keep these articles relatively short, even though there is a multitude of information on Agenda 21 on the ‘Net.

First, what is Agenda 21? In a nutshell, Agenda 21 is a document that was created by the UN advancing what they call “sustainable development” throughout the entire world. As a document, it originated in 1992 and in 1995, George Bush, Sr. signed onto it. The original name of the document was UN Sustainable Development Agenda 21. The Agenda 21 part simply refers to what the crafters of the document want to have in place during the 21st century. Sustainable development is the key phrase that should be kept in mind. Currently, 178 countries have signed on.

By signing onto the document, Bush promised that the United States would adopt the goals of Agenda 21. When Clinton became president, he issued an executive order “#12858 to create the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in order to ‘harmonize’ US environmental policy with UN directives as outlined in Agenda 21. The EO directed all agencies of the Federal Government to work with state and local community governments in a joint effort ‘reinvent’ government using the guidelines outlined in Agenda 21. As a result, with the assistance of groups like ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, which was changed to Local Governments for Sustainability), Sustainable Development is now emerging as government policy in every town, county and state in the nation.”

What exactly is sustainable development? “According to its authors, 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. Sustainablists insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.” I have emphasized the three components because I really want you to see what the agenda emphasizes.

Do you see that those three components might conflict with your personal freedoms? If not, please take a moment to consider them and their long-term ramifications, especially the third one.

There are also three areas within Agenda 21 that are being put forth, sort of like a three-pronged stool. These areas are being focused on by various aspects within our government, down to your local level. You may wish to find out what your local community is doing with respect to these areas because it will (not may) affect you eventually.

  1. Social Equity
  2. Economic Prosperity
  3. Local Sustainable Development policies

The above three prongs seem fairly innocuous, that is until you find out more about what they actually mean. Once we dig into these areas to determine what Agenda 21 means by them, we gain more insight.

For instance, regarding Social Equity we learn, “Social justice is described as the right and opportunity of all people ‘to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment.’ Redistribution of wealth. Private property is a social injustice since not everyone can build wealth from it. National sovereignty is a social injustice. Universal health care is a social injustice. All part of Agenda 21 policy.” Please do me a favor and read that again, all right?

Do you understand that under Agenda 21’s so-called social justice program, wealth is to be redistributed and private property will become outlawed. However, you don’t think for a moment that these coming rules will apply to the current super wealthy, do you? If you do, you need to think again. The über-rich will continue to maintain their wealth and status in the world. The rest of us? Far from it.

Economic Prosperity refers to “Public Private Partnerships (PPP). Special dealings between government and certain, chosen corporations which get tax breaks, grants and the government’s power of Eminent Domain to implement sustainable policy. Government-sanctioned monopolies.”

Is this reminding you of anything? Socialism perhaps? Maybe even Communism? Think about it. The original Agenda 21 was created by a Socialist – Gro Harlem Brundtland, VP of the World Socialist Party – so it shouldn’t surprise us that Socialism is written into the document throughout.

Ultimately, “Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.”

Local Sustainable Development policies include “Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, STAR Sustainable Communities, Green jobs, Green Building Codes, ‘Going Green,’ Alternative Energy, Local Visioning, facilitators, regional planning, historic preservation, conservation easements, development rights, sustainable farming, comprehensive planning, growth management, consensus.”

To help us understand what “sustainable development” is, we can learn what it is not. “Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paves and tarred roads, logging activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.”

This is important to understand that Agenda 21 is going backwards. Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing soil, etc., all of it is something that Agenda 21 does not support at all. What does this mean for life on planet earth then if Agenda 21 is allowed to become the norm? What does it mean for you?

Do you think this is all just someone’s pipe dream and couldn’t really happen? In our next part, we will look at how the government of the United States has already taken steps to crush small businesses and even attempt to make it impossible for people to allow their livestock to graze. It’s all because of Agenda 21.
