Understanding why “Agenda 21/Sustainable Development” is the enemy of Private Land Ownership!

Posted: July 10, 2013 in Uncategorized

You are considered a “HUMAN SETTLEMENT”, not a free and democratic Landowner. You should not be able to have any say in how you use YOUR land, develop YOUR land or even consider YOUR land as YOURS!

That is the belief system that has crept inside Municipal Councils across Ontario, Canada, and in fact around the world.

The organization that promotes this anti-human ideology is a well healed and well financed group of people with the United Nation’s Agenda 21 driving it along against any public outcry………….to a point.

It is called the International City/County Management Association or as it’s website labels it, the ICMA.

These types of organizations love short alphabetical names so that they virtually exist unnoticed amongst the background noise of foul and evil groups of people who want to ruin people’s lives and homes all in the name of achieving control and power.

Here is their opening statement:

“Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market.  Private land ownership is also the principle instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, and therefore, contributes to social injustice…”

If that statement doesn’t cause you to stand up and take notice about all that’s wrong with “Sustainable Development” then you are either NOT a landowner or are basically too dumb to go any further with this post!

These people are just one level of Governance that doesn’t involve the public except when they announce another statement to try and legitimize their mad ideology.

Organizations like this are guiding YOUR Councils along a path that is very anti-democratic and if you are looking for answers why you feel your under attack and being forced off your land, this is one amongst many groups contributing to that attack!

The concept of sustainable development arose after the 1974 United Nations adoption of a Declaration for the establishment of a “New International Economic Order” .

The document was written by developing countries and called for:

• The regulation of multi-national Corporations
• Authority to nationalize foreign property
• Authority to establish commodity monopolies
• The transfer of technology and technical assistance

The document showed clearly that the delegates to the U.N. General Assembly accepted the idea that governments should virtually control the economy. That equity was the primary objective. This document was largely ignored by developed nations. But many of these U.N. Delegates took these ideas to other U.N. conferences.

For example, the 1976 U.N. conference on Human Settlements (Habitat I).

Here is an excerpt from the Preamble:

“Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market.  Private land ownership is also the principle instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, and therefore, contributes to social injustice…”

This preamble sets the stage for 65 pages of very specific land use recommendations. Among the many recommendations are:

• A-1. Redistribute population in accord with resources
• D-1. Government must control the use of land to achieve equitable distribution of resources
• D-2. Control land use through zoning & land-use planning
• D-3. Excessive profits from land use must be recaptured by government
• D-4. Public ownership of land should be used to exercise urban and rural land reform
• D-5. Owner rights should be separated from development rights which should be held by a public authority.

This established the direction of the U.N.’s recommendation.

Among the signers on behalf of the United States were Carla Hills, Secretary of HUD and William Reilly, Conservation Foundation and later the Administrator for the EPA. Also in attendance were:

• Nine agencies of the federal government
• Sierra Club
• National Audubon Society
• Friends of the Earth
• Conservation Foundation
• League of Women Voters

The term “sustainable development” entered the vocabulary during the 1990’s and has virtually permeated every facet of American life. The term was first defined in the United Nations 1987 report of the World Commission on Environment & Development called “Our Common Future. The Commission was chaired by Gro Harlem Brundtland who was also Vice-Chair of the World Socialist Party.

Our Common Future defines sustainable development to be:

“Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

Sustainable development is illustrated to depict the proper balance between social equity, the environment, and economic development. Note that what is called sustainable is the perfect balance between policies related to these three all-encompassing areas of life.

The United Nations General Assembly asked the World Commission on Environment and Development, also called the Brundtland Commission, to “…propose long term Strategies for achieving sustainable development by the year 2000 and beyond…”.

Five years later the plan called Agenda 21 was unveiled at the 1992 Conference on Environment & Development. The conference was chaired by Maurice Strong who was also a member of the Brundtland Commission.

In it’s 40 chapters, Agenda 21 addresses virtually every aspect of life. Each chapter presents many policy recommendations that member nations are expected to adopt.

Some of the more important chapters are:

5. Demographics & Sustainability

7. Human Settlements (the foundation for “sustainable communities”)

10. Planning & Management of Land

18. Management of Water

30. The role of Business & Industry

38. International Mechanisms & Institutions (are seen to be the coordinators of worldwide sustainable development)

Agenda 21 calls for the creation of:

“…National strategies, plans, policies, and processes which are crucial in achieving a sustainable world.”

Note: The ratification of the Biodiversity Treaty, Agenda 21, was never voted on by Senate after Dr. Michael Coffman presented this map of the proposed development of the “wildlands” under Agenda 21 in the United States.

Six months after his inauguration, President Bill Clinton issued Executive Order #12852 which created the President’s Council On Sustainable Development on June 29 1993.

The Council’s Membership included:

• Twelve Cabinet-level Federal Officials
• Jonathan Lash, Pres. World Resources Institute
• John Adams, Ex. Dir. National Resources Defense Council
• Dianne Dillon-Ridgley, Pres. Zero Population
• Michelle Perrault, International V.P., Sierra Club
• John C. Sawhill, Pres. The Nature Conservancy
• Jay D. Hair, Pres. World Conservation Union (IUCN)
• Kenneth L. Lay, CEO, Enron Corporation
• William D. Ruckelshaus, Chm., Browning-Ferris Industries & former EPA Administrator

Their purpose was to translate the recommendations set forth in Agenda 21 into public policy administered by the federal government. They created the American version of Agenda 21 called “Sustainable America – A New Consensus”.

The ideas that came out of the U.N. conferences mentioned above, are emerging in public policy in the United States.

The Consensus Process – The most important dimension to the implementation of sustainable development policies.

Using the consensus process, an initiator carefully selects members of the affected group to participate on a decision making committee. The decision making committee never votes. Consensus is the process by which objections to the proposal are extinguished. This is contrary to the democratic process in which the affected group elects representatives. The representatives debate and then vote. The affected group then abides by the decisions. If the affected group is dissatisfied with the decision, they can elect new representatives to reflect their wishes. Using the consensus process, the affected group has no voice in choosing the decision makers.

Sustainable development was brought to America when President Clinton (initiator) initiated the President’s Council on Sustainable Development. This decision-making committee began with Agenda 21 as its proposal. Its goal was to translate Agenda 21 into public policy.

    Great post!

    Restricting land rights under the guise of “social injustice” sounds all warm and fuzzy doesn’t it? Anything in the 1st world necessary for our survival now contributes to “social injustice”.

    How about access to clean water? Social injustice.
    Affordable energy? Social injustice.
    Right to travel freely? Social injustice.
    Affordable food? Social injustice.
    Modest family home? Social injustice.
    Decent health care? Social injustice.
    Large families? Social injustice.
    Pro-life views? Social injustice.

    See how easy it is to get an army of ENGO’s on your side when you wrap things up under the cloak of “social injustice”?

    The middle class of all first world countries are then enemy and the rest of the world is being turned against us. See how it works?
