More Americans now realize that Agenda 21 expands government power at the expense of individual liberties
April 22, 2014
The Southern Poverty Law Center recently admitted that proponents of the United Nations’ neo-feudalism program known as Agenda 21 are losing public support due to the ever-growing influence of grassroot organizations.
In its latest report entitled “Agenda 21: The U.N., Sustainability and Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory,” the SPLC indicates that the implementation of Agenda 21, a United Nations program designed to replace private control of land with government planning, is slowing down due to successful resistance by liberty activists across the country.
“At least three states — Arizona, Missouri and Oklahoma — have considered laws, each of which passed one chamber of their legislatures, to halt the purportedly noxious effects of Agenda 21; Alabama went all the way, passing a 2012 law that was signed by Gov. Robert Bentley,” the report states. “Major political battles have broken out over it in Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Montana, Ohio and Texas.”
“Even the Republican National Committee, in January 2012, denounced Agenda 21 as a ‘destructive and insidious scheme’ to impose a ‘socialist/communist redistribution of wealth.’”
Signed in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush and later phased in by President Bill Clinton, the United Nations Agenda 21 Sustainable Development program is based on communitarianism, which calls for government to eventually take control of all land use without leaving any decision making in the hands of private property owners.
“It is assumed that people are not good stewards of their land and the government will do a better job if they are in control,” Agenda 21 expert Rosa Koire wrote on the subject, who is a Californian Democrat and the author of Behind The Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21. “Individual rights in general are to give way to the needs of communities as determined by the governing body.”
Some of the features of Agenda 21 include but are not limited to:
- The development of expensive and inefficient public rail systems in cities in order to increase centralized government control while also reducing the use of private transportation
- Utilities monitored by “Smart Meters” which can be controlled remotely by public utility companies
- The purposeful lack of easy freeway access in cities so residents remain close to their neighborhoods
- The accelerated implementation of toll roads, especially toll roads that discourage driving by increasing prices for traveling alone or for driving in “congested” areas
Another good example of how Agenda 21 is currently being implemented is to look at the explosion of “mixed use” condos being built in American cities which feature retail stores on the ground floor with several residential floors above.
These buildings are designed to keep people from traveling long distances by placing businesses within walking distance, but the stores on the ground floor typically stay vacant or are filled with businesses which seem out of place with the surrounding neighborhood.
In one major city in Texas, for example, a high-end pub with an expensive menu opened up on the ground floor of a “mixed use” condo and began charging $14 for hamburgers despite the neighborhood having an average annual income of around $40,000.
The current push by cities to completely replace private transportation such as cars with public transportation and bike lanes is another aspect of Agenda 21. Hamburg, Germany is already planning to ban cars within its city limits in the next 20 years.
And despite being fiction, the megacities in the comic series Judge Dredd feature many planned aspects of Agenda 21, a scary scenario even if real cities never completely match these fictional counterparts.
The overall intent of Agenda 21 is to expand government power at the expense of individual liberties by making the population more dependent on city infrastructure controlled by the government.
While the SPLC and other Agenda 21 proponents constantly harp that the program is “voluntary,” it is a moot point when so many cities are already implementing Agenda 21 which clearly benefits the government at the expense of its citizens.
“The plan is to restrict your choices, limit your funds, narrow your freedoms and take away your voice,” Koire added.
