“The World Happiness Report” Falsely Claims “Happiness Is Socialism” In Time for Rio 20+


The U.N. and their friends at our universities are at it again. They are spreading their socialist propaganda, this time with “The World Happiness Report” which ineptly claims that Happiness is Socialism, particularly if it’s the European kind (oh, yes, that is working so well).

The U.N. released the report last month in time for the Rio 20+ Summit.

This time, instead of trying to scare us with melting glaciers and dying polar bears, they are trying to show us how to be happy. They parade the usual good reasons about  – eradicate disease, poverty, and create a sustainable earth.

One well-known goal of the U.N. is to spread global socialism with Marxism at its core. They believe global socialism will eradicate poverty and save the planet from mankind whom they see as destroying it. Mankind is the cause of the “climate change.”

To further its goals, the U.N. has entrenched itself, not only in governments, but in universities such as Columbia University.

The Earth Institute was established at Columbia University in 1995. The research institute’s mission is to address complex issues facing the planet and its inhabitants, with particular focus on sustainable development and the needs of the world’s poor.

The Director of The Earth Institute is Jeffrey Sachs, a world-renowned economist. He is a member of a Latino socialist think tank. He is Special Advisor to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the Millennium Development Goals, having held the same position under former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. He is co-founder and Chief Strategist of Millennium Promise Alliance, and is director of the Millennium Villages Project. He has led several task forces to shape their research agendas.

Professor Sachs has been the Director of the Earth Institute of Columbia University since 2002. The Earth Institute has also guided the adoption of sustainable development as a new major at Columbia College. The Earth Institute is home to cutting-edge research on all aspects of earth systems and sustainable development.

The Earth institute is concerned with HIV/AIDS, poverty, and climate change.

The World Happiness Report was released this year by The Earth Institute and Dr. Jeffrey Sachs was one of the authors. The U.N. released it in April. The report’s conclusions are, in a nutshell, that socialism throughout the world will bring happiness. It appears he is fond of European Socialism – who could not want to be Greece or Spain? They claim, with their unscientific statistics that Northern Europeans are the happiest – That would be Ireland for one with its increasingly failing and impoverished state.

The authors of the World Happiness Report take the subjective topic of happiness and manipulate it into what falsely appears to be “objective” and “scientific” stats with graphs and charts of survey results and other unscientific data. They all lead to the same conclusion unsurprisingly – socialism equals happiness.

Oddly, the report never defines happiness but it knows how to get there. The report also lays siege to our freedoms and sovereignty in the name of good causes.

It is 170 pages of socialist propaganda wrapped up in a pretty social justice, anti-poverty package. The authors of this document believe that it is the role of government to make the world happy. Such a belief, must of necessity, replace the individual with the collective. It reminds me of Howard Dean’s quote, No one can be happy unless everyone is happy.

They demean having money because money can’t bring happiness. They come to the conclusion that limitations on acquiring wealth in the name of equality is conducive to general happiness. They are redistributionists who believe happiness comes when all have moderate incomes – they want to limit wealth.

If you buy into this and agree that collectivism brings happiness, you have ceded all individual freedom to the greater good for a false sense of security under the absurd premise that we can spread wealth enough so there are no poor. Were it not for corruption and the right of each man to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, maybe that would be somewhat possible.

The report has given up on the term “global warming” for the more nebulous “climate change.” It’s a deliberate deception.

The World Happiness Report, which promotes “anti-poverty” and “climate change,” is a roadmap for happiness as a global socialist.

It is typical of the propaganda that sets the stage for the U.N.’s radical Agenda. Read  the World Happiness Report  for yourself. So much, if not all of it, can be dunked on a factual and philosophical level. It’s pure propaganda in preparation for Rio 20+.

The U.N. Agenda is not only about Agenda 21. It is about treaties such as the small arms, International Criminal Court, the Rights of the Child, and the Law of the Sea (LOST).

The U.N. recently called for the global management of the Earth’s resources. This is in anticipation of the Rio 20+ Summit. The scientists involved in this clarion call claim that they are not calling for regulatory bodies with the U.N. in charge but they are off to a dangerous start.

They want “constitutional frameworks,” “international protocols” and a “shared vision” for land and water management that will essentially rewire existing treaties and governments.

The report, “21 Issues for the 21st Century,” from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) Foresight Process, is the culmination of a two-year deliberative process involving 22 core scientists. It is expected to receive considerable attention in the run-up to the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, which will be held in Rio, Brazil later this month.

The scientists who wrote the report say it focuses on identifying emerging issues in the global environment, and that it is not about mandating solutions. But its critics see an agenda lurking in its 60 pages, which call for a complete overhaul of how the world’s food and water are created and distributed — something the report says is “urgently needed” for the human race to keep feeding and hydrating itself safely.

It’s hard to imagine the last Agenda 21 conference on steroids but it appears that is what Rio 20+ will be.

For those who are unfamiliar with Agenda 21, Agenda 21 or ICLEI is an action plan of the United Nations dedicated to sustainable development and was an outcome of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. It’s coming back via RIO +20, which will take place the end of this month.

In 2012 the Republican National Committee (RNC) drafted a resolution opposing Agenda 21, calling it “a comprehensive plan of extreme environmentalism, social engineering, and global political control.”

Wiki refers to the RNC Resolution as a conspiracy conjured up by the John Birch Society. I don’t know how the John Birch Society feels about Agenda 21 or anything for that matter, but the RNC Resolution has nothing to do with that group nor is it based on any conspiratorial ideas.

I personally communicated with the sponsor of the RNC Resolution against Agenda 21, Ms.Helen Van Etten, who is the National Committeewoman from Kansas. She represents the Republican Party, not the John Birch Society, and she is not a conspiracy theorist.

Agenda 21 is a very real blueprint of climate preservation to be taken to every level of government throughout the world. The fact that the U.N. is behind it should concern people – they are not our friends.

Agenda 21/ICLEI/Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, whatever name you choose, all stand for the same thing, i.e. engulfing each community with an extreme climate change agenda requiring the redistribution of resources and money from the “rich” to the “poor.”

Va Right (click the link for more information) has put together the ICLEI member list below (June 1st). Unfortunately, my community on Long Island is on the list and has joined a consortium in the tri-state area – that’s how this socialist disease operates and spreads.
