“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.” Maurice Strong, Secretary General of the UN’s Earth Summit, 1992.
Solution? Destroy the middle class.
“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 a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice.” From the report from the 1976 UN’s Habitat I Conference.
Solution? Remove private owners from their land through regulation.
What do they consider unsustainable development? You won’t believe this:
"Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paved and tarred roads, logging activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.” UN’s Biodiversity Assessment Report.
“Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI. The Wildlands Project
Solution? Begin stripping citizens of their individual rights, including the rights to own land, farm land, use land for business, plant backyard gardens, owning pets, etc...
“Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy- fixated groups and individuals in our society… This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.” J. Gary Lawrence, Adviser to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development.
Solution? Since people will most likely protest UN Agenda 21, it must be re-branded and given a new name (sustainable development), to make it seem less threatening.
Ultimate goal of UN Agenda 21? Mass reduction in human population in order to maintain a sustained development of the planet.
