Patriots you may have noticed that the progressives have come out of the closet against letters in the Gazette warning our citizens about UN Agenda 21. It started with Don Mikulecky and ended with Norris Richardson with Jay Black and Don Holler thrown in the mix. They all think it is a joke and they are getting tired of hearing about it. Holler's attempt at humor says that maybe we could station some troops at Fort Nonsense to defend against the baby blue UN tanks coming into Mathews. These guys confirm what Lenin and Gorbachev called "useful idiots" and shows how little some people know about what is going on in this country. Thankfully the National Republican Committee took a strong stand against AG 21 in their resolution. Now most people realize that it is not "conspiracy theory" it is "conspiracy fact".
This is a portion of an article from Canada Free Press written by Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh.
James Gustave Speth, chairman of President Carter's Council on Environmental Quality, head of the World Resources Institute, member of President Clinton's transition team, and head of UN Development Program said at a conference called "Rio +5 meeting in Rio DE Janeiro in 1997:
"Global governance is here, here to stay, and, driven by economic and Environmental globalization, global governance will inevitably expand."
Global governance was defined in the 1999 UN Human Development Report: "The framework of rules, institutions, and practices that set limits on behavior of individuals, organizations, and companies."
Global governance can be further defined as those policies created by non-elected bureaucrats from international institutions that "limit the behavior of individuals, organizations, and companies." (Freedom21.org)
Government control of land use is a fundamental principle of global governance. The rules of global governance limit the behavior of individuals, organizations, and companies before the community understands what is happening. Many in Congress support the principle of global governance.
Signed in 1992, Agenda 21 is not a Treaty; it is a soft-law document of 40 chapters with recommendations covering every facet of human life. The recommendations have been implemented mostly administratively with little Congressional input; however, some have been included in legislation.
Federal agencies, EPA in particular, developed and awarded "visioning" grants to communities and to the American Planning Association. The "visioning" process at the local level was usually initiated by a local planning agency, a non-government agency (NGO) or ICLEI. The International Council on Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) is the international NGO created by the United Nations two years before the 1992 Rio conference, in order to advance the concept of "sustainable development."
"Sustainable development" is a plan of action for bike paths, walkways, greenbelts, conservation areas, high-density areas, urban boundary zones, and other buzzwords that "progressive" environmentalists have developed.
The 1976 UN Conference on Human Settlements in Vancouver declared government control of land use as "indispensable." The same document recommended government mandates for population redistribution to accommodate the needs of biodiversity.
We are familiar with the Wildlands Project and its map of protected land areas required by the Convention on Biological Diversity: Core reserves (roadless areas), Corridors (extensions of reserves, several miles wide), and Buffer Zones (gradation of human use). Dr. Coffman**showed this map to the Senate.
Farmers often sell some of their land to finance retirement to city dwellers who want to commute because they do not want to endure the chaotic city life. "Government control of land use enforced through comprehensive land use plans, deny farmers the right to sell their land to city dwellers because of an urban boundary zone, or greenbelt, or conservation area designation, or because of 'unjust compensation tax.'"(Freedom21.org)
My response to "progressives" is that we do know the truth, we do have cogent arguments and we would like to preserve our freedoms while protecting the environment in a manner that does not fundamentally alter our way of life or rob us of our property and sovereignty to the benefit of UN third world nations who have devised such transformative plans for Americans without our approval.
The United Nations cannot govern us because it contradicts our historic system of freedom and self-governance. Government is not the source of our individual rights; rights cannot be given or denied to us by a benevolent government in the interest of the community. Our Creator is the source of our unalienable rights.
