I can’t stress enough how important it is to get involved on a local level to stop Agenda 21. Please do your own research on this. You can go to sustainabledevelopment.un.org. This is one of the most dangerous things being implemented in our country now. Many local groups are getting involved in various states to try to stop Agenda 21 and ICLEI. Please read this article and then search for “Agenda 21” and you will find a lot of information that will help you understand how dangerous this is. The UN has wiped many of their links to make it harder to do research, but I found a lot of information. I’ll be posting more of it on my blog here and my website, Agenda 21 For Your Consideration.
(This article is from The Economic Collapse Blog, December 23, 2012.)
Even if you have your mortgage completely paid off, that doesn’t mean that you really “own” your property. If you don’t pay your taxes and obey the “codes”, you could lose your property very rapidly.
The philosophy behind all of this is the same philosophy behind Agenda 21. The elite believe that you cannot be trusted to do the “right thing” with your own property and that your activity must be “managed” for the greater good. They believe that by controlling you and restricting your liberties that they are “saving the planet”.
Unfortunately, you can probably expect this to get a whole lot worse in the years ahead. Our society is shifting from one that cherishes individual liberties and freedoms to one that is fully embracing collectivism. So our politicians will likely be making even more of our decisions for us as the years move forward.
I found this article at The Foundry . It explains Agenda 21 in a way that is easy to relate to. I put a bit of his article in here for you all to see. I’ve updated it since I first posted it and took some things off of here, so you can check out the link yourself. Let me know what you think:
Morning Bell: Agenda 21 and the Threat in Your Backyard- From The Foundry

Ready to trade in your car for a bike, or maybe a subway instead? Interested in fewer choices for your home, paying more for housing, and being crammed into a denser neighborhood? You can have all this and more if radical environmentalists and “smart growth” advocates have their way and local, state, and the federal government impose the policies set forth in the United Nations’ Agenda 21.
You might have heard of this nefarious-sounding policy in a recent Republican presidential debate, but even if you haven’t, here’s some background information: Agenda 21 is a voluntary plan adopted at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development. It calls on governments to intervene and regulate nearly every potential impact that human activity could have on the environment. The end goal? Getting governments to “rethink economic development and find ways to halt the destruction of irreplaceable natural resources and pollution of the planet.”
As adopted, Agenda 21 was described as “a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.” That includes hundreds of specific goals and strategies that national and local governments are encouraged to adopt. And that translates into restrictive zoning policies that are aimed at deterring suburban growth. Ultimately, they suppress housing supply and drive up home prices, in turn imposing unnecessary costs, especially on middle- and lower-income households. These policies contributed to and aggravate the real estate bubble by putting inflationary pressures on housing prices.
