UN Agenda 21
Also known as “sustainable development” which is defined as:
Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Agenda 21 was unveiled in 1992 during the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), commonly known as the Rio Earth Summit, where more than 178 nations adopted Agenda 21, and pledged to evaluate progress made in implementing the plan every five years thereafter.
The authors of Agenda 21 have said it will affect every area of life, grouped according to three objectives: Equity, Economy, and Environment (known commonly as “the 3 E’s”).
Using the Law to Restructure Human Nature
The International Redistribution of Wealth and the Creation of Public/Private Partnerships
Nature Above Man
|Individual Right, Bill of Rights etc
|Community Rights UN Declaration of Human Rights (Collectivism)|
|Purpose of Government||Protect the natural or inalienable rights of each individual. “That all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights”||Control the individual for the greater good of a global community. “Rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations|
|In Short||You are born with rights, government exists to protect them. You and the product of your labour belong to you||Government grants, restricts or removes your rights according to its needs. You and the product of your labour belong to the community.|
Which of the above options sounds most attractive?
The objectives of Agenda 21 are to achieve the following goals:
- Abolition of private property
- An end to national sovereignty
- Restructure the family unit (Government before family)
- Increasing limitations on mobility and opportunities
- Relocate people from rural to urban area’s
- Use “precautionary principle” to create sustainability
What’s not sustainable?
• Private Property
• Fossil Fuels
• Golf Courses
• Ski Resorts
• Paved Roads
• Commercial Agriculture
• Pastures and grazing of Livestock
• Family Unit
The precautionary principle states that if something is not sustainable then we must stop using it, just in case! Some of these are obvious, but who gets to say what goes on this list? Surely the underlying problem is a human population that cannot be sustained by just one planet. Of course Western nations should reduce their consumption, but even the US only has a population of around 300 million. China, India and Africa each have in excess of 1 billion people, with much higher birth rates than the West. When Live Aid was launched to help the starving people of Ethiopia, the population was around 35 million, now it’s nearer to 125 million.
One of the major aims of UN Agenda 21 is to achieve sustainable development, which is a noble and laudable objective, but if it means culling 80% of the World’s population, or loss of rights and liberties, does it still achieve those objectives?
It is clear that many compromises must be reached if we are to balance ever increasing demands, with ever reducing resources, but at what cost, and to whom?
