WEF Special Report - Agenda 21
Special Report—Agenda 21
The essential difference between Capitalism and Marxism is the ownership of
property. In a Capitalist system, individuals own and control the use of property.
In a Marxist system, property belongs to the community,
and its use is controlled by government.
· Agenda 21 is an action plan of the UN related to sustainable development and was an outcome of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development held in Brazil in 1992.
· The number “21” refers to an agenda for the 21st century.
· “…[C]urrent lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat consumption and large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and workplace air-conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.
A shift is necessary...” — Maurice Strong, United Nations
· The UN’s Agenda 21 was signed by the United States in 1992.
· Agenda 21 is being fulfilled through Smart Growth planning, land use, sustainable development and extreme environmentalism.
· Agenda 21 is grant driven to your city council or county board cloaked in terms such as sustainable, visioning, partners, tourism etc.
· Agenda 21 and the “sustainable development” policies it contains are constructed on the idea that property should belong to the community and its use must be controlled by the government.
· Advocates of Agenda 21 believe the only way to insure that future generations have the resources to meet their needs is for government to control the current generation’s use of resources. This is the excuse used in communities across the nation to impose a system of government control called sustainable development..
· “Sustainability,” as it is called, is facilitated by the federal government , and by the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI).
· ICLEI, created by the United Nations , boasts that more than 600 U.S. communities have entered into contracts through which ICLEI helps make the communities “sustainable.”
· Thirty-two local governments in WA state have joined ICLEI including Bellingham and Whatcom County .
· The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) monitors and promotes Agenda 21 activities through their Office for Sustainable Ecosystem and Communities.
Agenda 21 has nothing to do with “saving anything” – it has everything to do with “control.”
