What is the U.N. Agenda 21/Sustainable Development? It is a comprehensive program being foisted on the United States by United Nations zealots. It is designed to transfer wealth from the United States and other western nations to undeveloped countries.
The plan is based on the premise that human activity is destroying the planet. To counteract this before it is too late, the United Nations in concert with certain environmental groups and local governments throughout the world are going to revise society.
The main unit for revision is the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) and within local communities such as Local Governments for Urban Sustainability.
The ultimate goal is to concentrate all people into cities and allow return of all other land to wilderness complete with wild animals. No private property allowed. We are to be crammed into high rises above ground-floor commercial stores. This will be done by couching the true intent of such actions in language like “balancing environmental protection,” “reduction of automobile growth,” smart growth, smart streets and social justice.
They have been working on this plan since 1972 and our federal government, many state governments and some prominent cities (including Austin) have been slowly incorporating their projects with our tax money.
Not everyone is mesmerized, though. The 2012 Republican platform was, “We strongly reject the U.N. Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty, and we oppose any form of U.N. Global Tax.”
I strongly urge everyone in our community with a computer do a search of the term U.N. Agenda 21, including the following:
Editor’s Note: Agenda 21 was actually adopted in 1992 and was unanimously passed by leaders of the 178 countries attending the U.N. conference, including President George H.W. Bush. Agenda 21, according to links even Mr. McWilliams included, is a non-binding U.N. agreement aimed at encouraging communities to develop more sustainable environments.
