“The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”

A NY Times article posted two days ago tells me the Obama administration, a handler for the Times’, is worried that people are catching onto the true scope and nature of one of their favorite agendas – the U.N. Agenda 21.
Their article is another hit piece about people who dare question Agenda 21 or any aspect of the sustainability movement. It is replete with comments placing the “green” innovations in the harmless and/or proactive growth categories while mocking and belittling anyone who differs.
I am linking to U.N. sites on Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development in my article so you can discover the bare truth for yourself.
I am not personally in the Tea Party, but I am a civil libertarian. I believe in private ownership of property with a minimal amount of government intervention. Eminent Domain is necessary at times but it is being abused by the government as they speed along with the entire sustainability movement.
Click here for the U.N.’s Division for Sustainable Development Objectives. Once on the site, look to the left and click on any area – rural, oceans and seas, waste management, poverty and you will recognize the identical programs now taking place in every level of our government.
The title of the NY Times article is, “Activists Fight Green Projects, Seeing U.N. Plot.” Obviously, this article is biased right from the title but you will not find it in the op-ed section. It’s being passed off as journalism in the U.S. section.
The article ridicules the idea of a UN plot to deny property rights. The first paragraph of the article, which follows in italics, says all these concerned citizens are with the Tea Party, which is probably not accurate to begin with.
Assailing the Tea Party is a favored demonization tactic – the Tea Party is extreme and dangerous so believe nothing of what they say. Anyone who disagrees with the Times are Tea Party crazies. (The right might want to consider using the OWS in the same way – lots more to be concerned about there).
Across the country, activists with ties to the Tea Party are railing against all sorts of local and state efforts to control sprawl and conserve energy. They brand government action for things like expanding public transportation routes and preserving open space as part of a United Nations-led conspiracy to deny property rights and herd citizens toward cities.
While the Times mocks the activists, one only has to go to the U.N. site to see that ICLEI has found a way around governments who do not cooperate with Agenda 21 and that is to infiltrate at smaller levels of government. As you read on, you will see that they do indeed want to herd people into denser housing and discourage the use of cars.
Go to their site and see for yourself, but read between the obfuscating language. This excerpt describes the barriers and their plan to hit every level of government.
Many countries ignore it completely and the U.N. sees these as barriers so their way around them is to bombard every local government, even at the smallest levels, thereby circumventing constitutions and legislative bodies in sovereign nations.
From their site: Barriers to Local Implementation of Agenda 21, Focus on National and Sub-national Barriers
…As sustainable development implies reforming the traditional modes of development decision-making and activity, the implementation of any programme for sustainable development will inevitably require reforms to government policies, plans and practices at the national, sub-national and local levels. These reforms must particularly focus on removing the unintended barriers to sustainable development measures.
The Local Agenda 21 process, mandated in Chapter 28 of Agenda 21, has provided a mechanism for thousands of local authorities in more than 60 countries to identify necessary local government reforms for, and the related barriers to, sustainable development…
If you go to the end of this UN site (Agenda 21/ICLEI), you will see the following goals [I removed the extraneous language] -
- Price people out of cars
- Charge manufacturers for increased waste management and regulate it [that will be rife with corruption and bad for U.S. business]
- Regulate water
- Establish government education on energy and give tax breaks to the “favored educators” [propaganda]
- Government regulation of resources and energy
- Tax energy and tax it higher so conservation can be taxed less [Do you really want the U.N. regulating cap & trade for the U.S.?]
- Make car use a lot more expensive than public transport [It's back to buses and trains, which is why the MTA is involved in LI's ICLEI program]
- Agricultural subsidies for sustainable alternatives ONLY
- Regulate to end detrimental housing and increase open spaces. [Denser housing such as high rises, stack 'em and pack 'em]. Regulate the price of food to redistribute the wealth
- Regulate or promote voluntary elimination of “western” drainage, parking spaces, air conditioning (use fans), copy paper [do people really want everything regulated? Even copy paper?]
- Regulate severe air and water pollution. Give jurisdictional authority to the level of government that will properly distribute to social welfare programs [Let's keep people on welfare and as nonproductive followers - Lenin's useful idiots]
- Government to put progress on sustainable goals into employee performance reviews. [Follow their goals or lose your job - the dumbing of the American worker]. Governments to tax non-essential use such as parking spaces to put more people on bikes [Thus the sudden appearance of bike paths. No one has anything against bike paths but so far one near my house on Long Island is costing $7.1 million for one-and-a-half miles of path, perhaps more.]
- Regulate at the smallest levels of government [Infiltrate until it becomes the law of the land.]
This is one small section of their site! If you go through the site extensively, you will observe constant references to increased government regulation and taxes, redistribution of resources from the rich/middle class to the poor, elimination of fossil fuels, deprivation of private property and so on.
Since the U.S. is one of the largest consumers and one of the richest nations, we have a target on our back. Since the UN is a Marxist organization, private property does not figure into their plans.
Recently, on Long Island, our town leaders revealed their plan to consolidate large populations into high rises by the 150 railroad stations where the local government has purchased property. This is the same local government that is bankrupt, but had enough money to purchase over a 1000 acres for high rise development. Where is the money for a fire department going to come from? We are already taxed to death and have the highest foreclosures rates in the country. I will leave it to you to surmise.
One plan is to move the population out of rural areas through TDR’s, a kind of reverse mortgage, in which the private property is bought by a developer who turns the desirable land over to the government. The owners of the desired property live there until death at which time the government takes over the property and uses it as open spaces or turns it over to a developer of their choice. Developers are encouraged to build dense housing by public transportation. They love to propagandize it with the word, ‘affordable housing.’
Say farewell to the inheritance of land and hello to government-private developer cronyism.
The UN’s Division for Sustainable Development describes their movement as one in which they will plan every aspect of life in which a human has any impact. The following is in their own words -
“Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.”
If you have any question about the U.N.’s view on property rights, please click here for their Marxist views in their own words.
The U.N. is corrupt. Two prominent examples were seen in the oil-for-food program and the missing funds that were earmarked for Tsunami relief and pedophilia rape. The UN stands for the damnation of Israel, support of a nuclear Iran, support for North Korea, Russia, China, and radical Islam. They not only refuse to implement significant sanctions against terrorist nations, but they support the terrorists. They continually put the foxes in charge of the hen house. For example, they put Iran on the women’s right council.
The only thing standing between the U.N. and global anarchy is the U.S. and I am not so sure about us.
There is no need to repeat any more of the Alinsky-style verbiage in the Times article that got me started because it is leftist propaganda meant to cower people. I advise people to go through the U.N. ICLEI sites I have referenced and read them with a discerning eye, remembering that the U.N. hates us and hates Israel. Then take a good hard look at what is happening in your local communities.
The Obama administration is a socialist administration which is following the Kyoto treaty without it ever having been signed. Call it whatever you will – sustainable development, smart growth, ICLEI – it’s all Agenda 21.
The U.N. believes that our land is theirs for the taking – the U.S. belongs to the world since, in the U.N.’s world, no one has the right to own land privately. They want your private property and they want to regulate every aspect of your life.
