“U.N. Agenda 21 cites the affluence of Americans as being a major  problem which needs to be corrected.  It calls for lowering the standard  of living for Americans so that the people in poorer countries will  have more, a redistribution of wealth.  Americans are cast in a very  negative light and need to be taken down to a condition closer to  average in the world.  Only then, they say, will there be social justice  which is a cornerstone of the U.N. Agenda 21 plan.”

“Agenda 21 policies date back to the 70′s but it got its real start  in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro when President Bush signed  onto it.  President Clinton signed it later and continued the program  in the United States.  A non-governmental organization called the  International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives, ICLEI,  (ick-ly) is tasked with carrying out the goals of Agenda 21.  Over 600  cities in the U.S. are members; our town joined in 2007. The costs are  paid by taxpayers.”

What Can I Do?

“To start, the best thing you can do is to read more and open your eyes to the workings of your town.  You’ve heard the slogan “Think Globally, Act Locally”. Communitarianism and sustainable development/SmartGrowth don’t show up much in the paper, but they do, every day.  If you’re paying attention and reading intelligently, articles about redevelopment projects, bicycle boulevards, neighborhood summits, neighborhood elections, neighborhood revitalization projects, neighborhood stabilization projects, visioning, local boards, smart growth projects, low-income housing subsidies, transportation grants, green building retrofit programs, well monitoring, SMART electric and gas meters, and the people who object to them come out every day.  Connect with those people.  Tell them about UN Agenda 21.  Be a bridge.”
