As a prelude to the subject of Agenda 21 it is important to realize that threats to our liberties are not new. In every generation there exist evil people who wish to enslave their brothers, and will devise any means to accomplish these goals. These men and women are patient and diabolical. They believe they are the elite who must manage, nurture and control the masses. The masses--that would be you and me.

The founding fathers were brilliant men who endeavored to free humanity from the shackles of these wolves in sheep's clothing. But a complacent populace will allow the wolves to mingle with them thinking that we can just "go along to get along," all the while the wolves are preparing lamb for dinner. Way back in the year 42 a very wise senator warned us:

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not to be a traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared." - Cicero, 42 B.C.

Yes, way back in the year 42 B.C. Marcus Cicero warned the Roman citizens of their peril. Let us not follow the example of these former citizens who sneered and said "It can't happen here." It did happen. The wolves mingled among the sheep and led them to their slaughter.

As you examine this information think about the wolves and who they are. Is the government money coming into your community really for the benefit of the local residents? Or is it perhaps seed money for a slaughter house for the "sheeple"?

What is Sustainable Agriculture? See if you can get your arms around an answer to that question as we begin to look at Agenda 21

Below you will find a list of words and phrases which have crept into our vocabulary just in the last few decades. As you take the time to really examine this list you will begin to realize that these catch words and phrases have no tangible meaning. I mean, you can't really explain "smart growth". Has all growth been stupid growth up till now? It is not by accident that this list of Agenda 21 phrases are hard to define. The wolves will use these phrases to pull at your emotions in order to further their Agenda. They rely on your reacting with emotion without ever taking the time to research their true Agenda. They depend on the sheep never to truly understand the consequences and the meaning of what their "newspeak" phrases really mean.

Local Sustainable Development Policies

Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, STAR Sustainable Communities, Green Jobs, Green Building Codes, “Going Green,” Alternative Energy, Local Visioning, Facilitators, Regional Planning, Historic Preservation, Conservation Easements, Development Rights, Sustainable Farming, Comprehensive Planning, Growth Management, Consensus.

Where did it originate?

The term Sustainable Development was first introduced to the world in the pages a 1987 report ("Our Common Future") produced by the United Nations World Commission on Environmental and Development, authored by Gro Harlem Brundtland, VP of the World Socialist Party. The term was first offered as official UN policy in 1992, in a document called UN Sustainable Development Agenda 21, issued at the UN’s Earth Summit, today referred to simply as Agenda 21. Or even just "The Agenda".

What gives Agenda 21 Ruling Authority?

More than 178 nations adopted Agenda 21 as official policy during a signing ceremony at the Earth Summit. US president George H.W. Bush signed the document for the US. In signing, each nation pledges to adopt the goals of Agenda 21. In 1995, President Bill Clinton, in compliance with Agenda 21, signed Executive Order #12858 to create the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in order to “harmonize” US environmental policy with UN directives as outlined in Agenda 21. The EO directed all agencies of the Federal Government to work with state and local community governments in a joint effort to “reinvent” government using the guidelines outlined in Agenda 21. As a result, with the assistance of groups like ICLEI, Sustainable Development is now emerging as government policy in every town, county and state in the nation.

Agenda 21 and Private Property

The UN and Agenda 21 zealots do not want you to own private property. Not only are they opposed to private property, they have been working tirelessly for decades, putting a vehicle in place which will enable them to confiscate the property you now own! Read on...believe me it is scarier than it sounds.

“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 (in)justice.” From the report from the 1976 UN’s Habitat I Conference.

“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.

"Yeah" you say, "but that kind of talk only comes from the socialist wackos at the UN."

Really? Look at what is coming out of the executive branch of our own government.

“Private land use decisions are often driven by strong economic incentives that result in several ecological and aesthetic consequences…The key to overcoming it is through public policy…” Report from the President’s Council on Sustainable Development, page 112.

Just what is it that these pointy-headed intellectuals think we need to overcome? Your right and ability to determine how to use your property, of course. They see the need for a "central committee" to make such heady decisions as which crop you will plant or what livestock you will raise ... if any!

Hide Agenda 21’s UN Roots From the People

So if the promoters of Agenda 21 really believe their policies will benefit mankind, wouldn't you expect them to be upfront and honest about their objectives? I mean good things, honest things and truthful things are done in the light for all to see. Lies, dishonest manipulations and yes things Evil are done in the dark and in secret. So is Agenda 21 being promoted honestly in the light or evilly in the dark.?

“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, advisor to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development.

So if you are like me and it concerns you that

"our individual freedom would be stripped away" then for your own good you must be lied to and fed disinformation in order to convince you that what is bad is good. (As a side note: did you know you were conspiracy-fixated? I didn't know I was. Not until I found out "conspiracy-fixated" means anyone who cherishes individual freedoms as guaranteed by our Constitution. But I digress.)

Therefore, demonizing the opposition and controlling people through disinformation and fear is critical as they conceal their true agenda. Published government documents characterize patriots as terrorists and a threat to law enforcement. Pay close attention to the politicians who say we all just need to get along and quit our partisan bickering. Notice, almost without exception, that this means conservatives and patriots need to shut up and toe the socialist line for our own good. It never means that the socialists need to recant their agenda and adhere to the Constitution.

Those who define the terms will write the rules.

Excerpt from "The Principles of Newspeak" An appendix to 1984
Written by : George Orwell in 1948

Newspeak was the official language of Oceania, and had been devised to meet the ideological needs of Ingsoc, or English Socialism… It was expected that Newspeak would have finally superseded Oldspeak (or standard English, as we should call it) by about the year 2050.

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of IngSoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible. This was done partly by the invention of new words, but chiefly by eliminating undesirable words and stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meanings, and so far as possible of all secondary meaning whatever.

To give a single example - The word free still existed in Newspeak, but could only be used in such statements as "The dog is free from lice" or "This field is free from weeds." It could not be used in its old sense of "politically free" or "intellectually free," since political and intellectual freedom no longer existed even as concepts, and were therefore of necessity nameless.

As we have already seen in the case of the word free,words which had once borne a heretical meaning were sometimes retained for the sake of convenience, but only with the undesirable meanings purged out of them. Countless other words such as honour, justice, morality, internationalism, democracy, science, and religion had simply ceased to exist.

All words grouping themselves round the concepts of liberty and equality, for instance, were contained in the single word crimethink…

Take for example the well-known passage from the Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of those ends, it is the right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government..

It would have been quite impossible to render this into Newspeak while keeping to the sense of the original. The nearest one could come to doing so would be to swallow the whole passage up in the single word crimethink…

Remember, those who define the terms will write the rules. Those whose "science" will "educate" the masses, will control public beliefs and behavior.

What is Sustainable Development?

According to its authors, the objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity. Sustainablists insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components: global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.

What is not sustainable?

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.

So if you live in a single family home, that is unsustainable. You need to think about that. One of the objectives of Agenda 21 is to eliminate all activity they deem unsustainable. In order to do that we must all change our lifestyles so that we live like the poorest in third world countries. The process is in motion, it is taking place all around us. The world socialists believe they are well on the way to eliminating your constiutional rights and they expect total victory in the near future.

Has it ever seemed odd to you that so-called environmentalists who demand that we use wind, solar and other so-called "green" energy, will then demand that we tear out a perfectly good hydroelectric dam. These dams produce efficient energy with almost no negative environmental effects. It doesn't seem consistent does it? That is because it is not about the environment--it is about Agenda 21 and stripping your constitutional freedoms from you. It is not and has never been about good stewardship.

“We must make this place an insecure and inhospitable place for Capitalists and their projects – we must reclaim the roads and plowed lands, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of tens of millions of acres of presently settled land.” Dave Foreman, Earth First.

Social Equity (Social Justice)

Why would a president insist on implementing universal health care when poll after poll confirm that the American people overwhelmingly disagree with this policy? Could there be an ongoing "Agenda" pushing this?

Social justice is described as the right and opportunity of all people “to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment” and the redistribution of wealth. Private property is a social injustice since not everyone can build wealth from it. National sovereignty is a social injustice. Universal health care is a social justice. All part of Agenda 21 policy.

Notice again that private property is considered a social injustice. Under Agenda 21 you will not be allowed to keep any private property you may now own. You also must "share" any income you have with those who have less than you. During the presidential campaign, candidate Obama was asked why he wanted to raise taxes on the rich when there was indisputable evidence that this would actually decrease rather than increase overall revenue to the treasury. His response was that it is not about revenue it is about fairness. In other words social justice as defined by Agenda 21. Agenda 21 is a world-wide objective. The poorest citizens of the United States are rich compared to most of the world's standards. So when Agenda 21 is implemented world wide who will be made to give up all that they have in the name of world-wide social justice and fairness?

Have you answered the question, What is sustainable agriculture?

Sustainable agriculture integrates three main goals--environmental health, economic profitability, and social and economic equity

Remember Agenda 21 social and economic equity means that it is wrong for you to make or have more than anyone else in the world.

Farming and Natural Resources



When the production of food and fiber degrades the natural resource base, the ability of future generations to produce and flourish decreases.

Several steps should be taken to develop drought-resistant farming systems even in "normal" years, including both policy and management actions:

1)improving water conservation and storage measures,

2)providing incentives for selection of drought-tolerant crop species,

3)using reduced-volume irrigation systems,

4)managing crops to reduce water loss, or

5)not planting at all.


Another way in which agriculture affects water resources is through the destruction of riparian habitats within watersheds.

Animal Production Practices

Management Planning.

Therefore, a successful ranch plan should include enterprise calendars of operations, stock flows, forage flows, labor needs, herd production records and land use plans to give the manager control and a means of monitoring progress toward goals.

Animal Selection.

Animal Nutrition.


Herd Health.

Grazing Management.

Prolonged concentration of stock that results in permanent loss of vegetative cover on uplands or in riparian zones should be avoided. However, small scale loss of vegetative cover around water or feed troughs may be tolerated if surrounding vegetative cover is adequate.

Notice in the above paragraph that small-scale loss "May be tolerated". Remember who it will be who will be defining all of these terms. When they talk about the manager who oversees the management plan, who are they talking about? It is not the ranch or farm owner. Remember Agenda 21 requires a central committee to manage your land.

Confined Livestock Production.

The moral and ethical debate taking place today regarding animal welfare is particularly intense for confined livestock production systems. So yes, the central committee will have to make a determination whether or not you can feed out your animals in preparation for slaughter. It seems that the only slaughter houses which appeal to them are the ones for the "sheeple".

Revealing Quotes From the Planners

“Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by EVERY person on Earth…it calls for specific changes in the activities of ALL people… Effective execution of Agenda 21 will REQUIRE a profound reorientation of ALL humans, unlike anything the world has ever experienced… ” Agenda 21: The Earth Summit Strategy to Save Our Planet (Earthpress, 1993). Emphases – DR

“No one fully understands how or even, if, sustainable development can be achieved; however, there is growing consensus that it must be accomplished at the local level if it is ever to be achieved on a global basis.” The Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide, published by ICLEI, 1996.

Reinvention of Government

“We need a new collaborative decision process that leads to better decisions, more rapid change, and more sensible use of human, natural and financial resources in achieving our goals.” Report from the President’s Council on Sustainable Development

Who is behind it?

ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). Communities pay ICLEI dues to provide “local” community plans, software, training, etc. Additional groups include American Planning Council, The Renaissance Planning Group, International City/County Management Group, aided by US Mayors Conference, National Governors Association, National League of Cities, National Association of County Administrators and many more private organizations and official government agencies. Foundation and government grants drive the process.

Local Agenda 21

Chapter 28 of Agenda 21 specifically calls for each community to formulate its own Local Agenda 21:

"Each local authority should enter into a dialogue with its citizens, local organizations, and private enterprises and adopt 'a local Agenda 21.' Through consultation and consensus-building, local authorities would learn from citizens and from local, civic, community, business and industrial organizations and acquire the information needed for formulating the best strategies." (Agenda 21, Chapter 28, sec 1,3.)

This tactic may sound reasonable until you realize that the dedicated "Stakeholder Group' that organizes and oversees local transformation is not elected by the public. And the people selected to represent the 'citizens' in your community will not represent your interests. The chosen 'partners', professional staff, and working groups are implementing a new system of governance without asking your opinion.

They probably don't even want you to know what they are doing until the regulatory framework is well under way. You may read in your local paper about "visioning", working groups, Total Quality Management, and partnership between churches, welfare and social service agencies, and other community groups. These are clues that, behind the scenes, the plan is moving forward.

The goals and strategies are outlined in Sustainable America, the report from our President's Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD). President Clinton's PCSD is merely one of about 150 similar councils established by nations around the world, all following guidelines from the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development.

All participants must embrace the collective vision of a "sustainable community". They must commit to pursue the three E's of "sustainable development":

Environment, Economy and Equity

referring to the UN blueprint for environmental regulations, economic controls, and social equity.

Meanwhile, opposing voices must be silenced. "Implementing the 'sustainable agenda' requires marginalizing critics," says Craig Rucker, Executive Director of CFACT, a conservative public interest group in Washington, D.C. dealing with consumer and environmental issues. He explains,

Local Agenda 21-Santa Cruz was birthed in 1993 by the local chapters of the United Nations Association and ACTION (Agenda 21 Community Team Work in Operation). The original stakeholders began to "envision a sustainable future," choose compatible "partners", and organize the twelve Round Tables which evolved into twelve Special Focus Areas (for summaries of each plan, read Local Agenda 21 Pt.2 -Santa Cruz - Key points from the twelve Focus Groups):

To understand these terms and the new international education system they represent, you may want to read Brave New Schools. Those who don't realize that today's change agents hide globalist ideology behind traditional words, can easily be drawn into the web of deception by the noble sentiments. These arguments from the Education section of Santa Cruz Local Agenda 21 show how persuasive their propaganda can be to an unsuspecting public:

Social Justice. Remember the stakeholders that are defining social justice and preparing its standards? They include NOW, Beyond Beijing, social welfare leaders, environmental groups -- all the voices that demand the abolition of Western culture, male leadership, and biblical absolutes.

Politically correct tolerance sets a new standard for communication and inclusiveness. It immediately disqualifies biblical Christianity as exclusive, hateful, patriarchal, and intolerant.

Modern socialist leaders claim to know how to manipulate human nature. "We have to make better people," urged Shirley McCune at the 1989 Governors Conference on Education. Nineteen years earlier, the ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, the curriculum branch of the NEA) published "To Nurture Humaneness" in which Professor Raymond Houghton wrote,

"The critical point of behavior control, in effect, is sneaking up on mankind without his self-conscious realization that a crisis is at hand. Man will not even know that it is about to happen."

There is no better way to sum this all up than quoting the vice chairman of International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives(ICLEI).

“Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI. The Wildlands Project

And above all remember:

It is scarier than it sounds!
