(Environmentalism Gone Wild)
By Daymond DuckI recently learned that a speaker would be discussing Agenda 21 at our local Tea Party meeting. Knowing that Agenda 21 was established by the United Nations to help bring in one-world government and that it has enjoyed the support of luminaries such as Pres. George H. W. Bush (1992 Earth Summit), Pres. Bill Clinton (Executive Order 12858) and Pres. Barack Obama (Executive Order 13575), I decided to attend.
This hideous idea has been around for more than a quarter of a century. For many of those years, it was in the discussion stage, but it has now moved to the implementation stage. In the
, it has made its way into every state in the union. Those who want to know if it has come to their city, town or county can find out by going to www.iclei.org. At the top of the page, on the horizontal menu click on “Members.” In the left margin of the page that comes up, click on “Global Members.” When that page comes up, scroll down to “ United States ” and click. You will find more than five hundred places on a list that will soon be much larger. United States of America
Advocates of this fiendish idea target groups such as the National Governors Association, the National League of Cities, the
Mayors Conference, the National Association of County Administrators, and others. They offer government grants and foundation money to entice elected officials (governors, mayors, county administrators, city administrators, council persons and others) to establish and empower non-elected committees or councils to accept wonderful sounding programs such as “Open Space,” “Smart Codes,” “Smart Growth,” “Growth Management, “Sustainable Development,” “Regional Planning,” “Green Building Projects” and the like. Establishing and empowering these committees is like making a deal with the devil because it authorizes non-elected government officials that are accountable to no one, except the UN and God, to take control of businesses, houses, land and roads to do whatever they want to do with them. Individuals are powerless to stop them because our elected officials have placed the law on the committee’s side. U.S.
Under the guise of smart planning or wise development these committees can rezone any piece of property or any area of town they want and do away with all roads, bridges, power lines, gas lines, water lines, sewer lines or whatever that go to that property.
Under the guise of protecting the environment they can do away with the highway, street or lane we drive to work on and replace it with a walking trail or a bicycle trail. Some say these committees will eventually seize all privately owned property; take away our gas-powered vehicles; tell us where to live, how many children we can have, what we can and cannot eat, what we can and cannot grow; and force us to move to a small apartment that is energy efficient and close to our job, so we can walk to work, ride a bicycle or take public transportation.
According to some, our current lifestyle is unsustainable, and society as a whole will be better off with a committee making most of our decisions for us. We will have no choice but to go along with it because our elected officials will have subordinated (sold out or signed over) our individual rights when they took the government grant and signed the documents to create these non-elected committees. This should not be viewed as something that will never get to us because it is already being implemented in many places and it will continue to grow until the UN controls every piece of property on earth. When they get that kind of control, people will do what they say or lose their head.
Good bye freedom. Good bye individual rights. Hello going green and one-world government.
Thank you Daymond Duck for this well-written commentary about an issue that has far too long been ignored. Christians, wake up.
