Agenda 21

by JASON | 7:20 AM in |

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.

Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the Statement of principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests were adopted by more than 178 Governments at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992.

The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) was created in December 1992 to ensure effective follow-up of UNCED, to monitor and report on implementation of the agreements at the local, national, regional and international levels. It was agreed that a five year review of Earth Summit progress would be made in 1997 by the United Nations General Assembly meeting in special session.

The full implementation of Agenda 21, the Programme for Further Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Commitments to the Rio principles, were strongly reaffirmed at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) held in Johannesburg, South Africa from 26 August to 4 September 2002.

What do the Statue of Liberty, Independence Hall, and Monticello have in common? The average American with a smattering of historical knowledge might say that those historic sites are all symbolic of America's unique heritage of freedom.

Monticello, of course, was the home of Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence. That document (as well as the U.S. Constitution, later) was signed in Independence Hall. The Statue of Liberty memorializes the free nation under God that those founding documents created.

What about the Great Smoky Mountains, Yellowstone Park, and the Grand Canyon? Well, these priceless natural resources are all managed by the U.S. National Parks Service. They are among the most frequently visited natural recreation areas in America, where millions of American families vacation every year.

Would it surprise you to learn that every one of these unique American landmarks is also controlled by the United Nations? It's amazing but true. Every one of the natural and historic treasures listed above — plus more than a dozen more in America — has been designated an official World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which is headquartered in Paris, France.

Sites included in the World Heritage program are considered to have "outstanding universal value" as part of our common world heritage. They are designated as protected areas under the 1972 World Heritage Treaty, which is itself an outgrowth of the 1968 UNESCO Biosphere Conference — where the currently ubiquitous concept of "sustainable development" first saw the light of day.

Agenda 21, the UN blueprint for global transformation, sounds good to many well meaning people. Drafted for the purpose of creating "sustainable societies", it has been welcomed by nations around the world. Political, cultural, and media leaders have embraced its alluring visions of social justice and a healthy planet. They hide the lies behind its doomsday scenarios and fraudulent science. Relatively few consider the contrary facts and colossal costs.

After all, what could be wrong with preserving resources for the next generation? Why not limit consumption and reduce energy use? Why not abolish poverty and establish a global welfare system to train parents, monitor intolerance, and meet all our needs? Why not save the planet by trading cars for bikes, an open market for "self-sustaining communities," and single dwellings for dense "human settlements" (located on transit lines) where everyone would dialogue, share common ground, and be equal?

The answer is simple. Marxist economics has never worked. Socialism produces poverty, not prosperity. Collectivism creates oppression, not freedom. Trusting environmental "scientists" who depend on government funding and must produce politically useful "information" will lead to economic and social disaster. 3

Even so, local and national leaders around the world are following the UN blueprint for global management and "sustainable communities."

Sustainable Development is the most extensive and broad ranging social engineering project ever undertaken. With respect to state, county and local political bodies, many have contracted their powers away. They applied for loans and grants that required "concessions." Many times the concessions included authority over renewable natural resources and development. Those terms and concessions handed the scepter of power and ultimate authority over to the financier in perpetuity.

Sustainable Development is the most extensive and broad ranging social engineering project ever undertaken. To give effect to this vague phrase and to its empiric objectives, significant changes in human behavior had to be promoted, influenced or induced.

The United Nations (UN) program for Sustainable Development has three primary components.

(1) The initiating "program"

(2) An "agenda" with objectives and,

(3) “Projects” to implement the program and agenda on the ground.

Sustainable development has a long developmental history. It was reasonably well explained in "The Green Web: A Union for World Conservation" by Martin Holdgate. Mr. Holgate was Director-General of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) between 1988 and 1994.

The UNESCO Man & Biosphere program was an experimental forerunner in the innovative development of the social engineering scheme. The IUCN was specifically named in the World Heritage Treaty. They assumed planning and management authority of those experimental areas as a treaty organization. Those areas are sometimes referred to as Biosphere Reserves and are managed under the Seville Strategy, numerous treaties and Agenda 21.

We know that Agenda 21, Earth's Action Plan, was the overall social engineering agenda for "sustainable development" with specified "objectives." Agenda 21 was written by the IUCN. At the U.N. Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, in June 1992, Nicholas A. Robinson railroaded Agenda 21 through as the "Rio Declaration on Environment and Development". He used sleep deprivation techniques to get it through as he knew that rested, wide awake delegates would never agree to such a scheme. You need a copy of the IUCN's annotated version of Agenda 21 to find that information. It was edited out of all other editions.
