Here is Tom DeWeese on our progress in the fight against Agenda 21.
Rescue Mission” Planet Earth – A Children’s Edition of Agenda 21 was first published by KingFisher Books on Earth Day 1994. It was written, designed and illustrated by Children’s Task Force on Agenda 21. The book is credited to Children of the World in association with the United Nations. The sponsors are:
This book contains an Introduction by then Secretary General of the United Nations, Boutros Boutros-Ghali in which he admits that “Agenda 21 contains a special chapter devoted to children and youth in sustainable development, which stresses the need for their active involvement in matters related to environment and development.”
This book is roughly 100 pages of single sided and double-sided “lessons” for our youth. It is an indoctrination manual design to spread fear, exaggerate concerns, and rob the innocence of our children. There is a smog poem on page 11 written by a poor indoctrinated child from Poland that is utterly heart-breaking. There are warnings about a hole in the ozone-layer, vanishing mountains, expanding deserts, destroyed rain forests, polluted seas and rivers etc.
There are photos attached to provocative headlines but no clear indication that the photo represents the results of the issue discussed. In some cases it is obvious that there is no connection, but to a child this is all very convincing. The purpose of the book is to push a specific agenda. The pushers of Agenda 21 have no sense of decency. They hide behind the fact that these topics were developed by children for children. It is disgusting to see what these children regurgitate. There is no science in this book, it is all theory, hype and emotion. It is also quite revealing as to who these propagandists really are. Click the picture to download the book.
Here is a tremendous resource for Public Officials to help them understand and combat Agenda 21 in their communities. This is also helpful for anyone who would like to become a local official or who is supporting/courting candidates for local offices.
Presentations such as this are being conducted in front of groups in communities all across these United States. If you are a member of a community group or hold a leadership position and would like to bring in a presenter, Hal Shurtleff is busy conducting such talks and soliciting engagements. For More Information on a presentation in your town: Call Hal at 857-498-1309.
If you are engaged in a green organization, and want to help the environment without destroying private property rights, you are not alone. A presentation in front of your group or members of your group in an independent venue is a great idea so that you can continue your fine work without allowing others to destroy your rights in the process.
Agenda 21 in Your Hometown Comprehensive Plan
Your local government does not hold membership in ICLEI so there is no cause for concern, right? Not so fast ! Agenda 21 is often implemented without ICLEI membership. In fact, almost every community in this country has been tainted by the UN initiated Agenda 21 assault on individual property rights and its web of innocuous sounding vernacular. For sure, those with membership are at the forefront of implementation of Agenda 21. Most of those communities have serious, often well-intentioned, participants who are dedicated to carry out the UN mission usually without any understanding of the conflict that exists between Agenda 21 and the traditional American system. Education for Sustainability works well to soften local leaders and prepare the way for a democratic transformation from an American System of individual rights to an International System of collective rights.
My local community is Bristol Township in Bucks County Pennsylvania. Bristol does not hold ICLEI membership as far as I can tell, however, we have a draft comprehensive plan that reeks Agenda 21. It was approved in June 2008. You see, there are other vehicles that the UN has to provide assistance in implementing their schemes. In this case, it appears as though our State government assumed that role. Let’s step through the comprehensive plan and highlight some obvious areas where Agenda 21 roars its ugly head.
The Introduction gives us insight into how the State uses our own tax dollars to bribe our communities. First the taxes are collected from us, then they are sent to our communities in the form of grants which help to formulate a plan. The plan is designed to qualify the community for additional grants which are earmarked to assist in the rollout of Agenda 21:
This document was prepared with financial assistance from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development through a Land Use Planning and Technical Assistance Program (LUPTAP) grant.
The introduction section contains background information which often re-enforces the top-down method of our modern planners. In this case they are sure to emphasize the fact that our community is in compliance with the state:
This update of the Bristol Township Comprehensive Plan is prepared under the authority granted by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to municipalities to prepare comprehensive plans in accordance with the provisions of the Municipalities Planning Code (MPC). Article III of the MPC provides requirements regarding the content and information that must be included as part of a comprehensive plan. … The plan provides a blueprint for housing, land use, community facilities, and transportation. It is not a legal document but assists decision-makers. It contains no rules or regulations but forms the basis for zoning regulations.
A visit to http://www.newpa.com/ is an eye-opening experience. It is hard to fathom and difficult to describe the extent to which the State of Pennsylvania is promoting its own self-destructive policies thru an extensive grant program.
The Vision of the Comprehensive Plan
The Vision of the Comprehensive Plan is a reflection of Agenda 21. To illustrate this point I will juxtapose the “Overall Goal” against a graphical representation of the Agenda 21 Three E’s or Three Pillars of Sustainability.
The vision explains that the goals of the comprehensive plan will be attained by promoting “Smart Growth” principles and “Sustainability” principles. Stack ’em and pack ’em housing is alluded to in the following goals:
Proper accommodation of the 2008 to 2018 population in sound housing supported by superior municipal services. Maintenance and/or re-establishment of land use patterns which create healthful, convenient and prosperous living and working arrangements, including employment opportunities for township residents.
The vision also expresses an interest in expanding the means of alternate transportation. Apparently, automobiles are not considered a “sustainable” transportation method in large-scale.
The remainder of the document progresses through every area of community life. All the polices in each section can be traced back to the goals specified in the vision section of the document and that vision is our local interpretation of Agenda 21. It is striking to see the authoritarian attitude which exudes from this planning document. The vast majority of our community is in private hands, yet the local government views the entire geographic area in terms of “resources” that it can control or regulate. There is occasional lip-service given to the individual land owner, however, it is clear that the individual is subordinated in favor of the community as a whole. I invite you to read the plan in the following reference link.
