The new world order of sustainable development: How will it affect us?
* March 22nd, 2010 1:53 pm ET
Be very wary of sustainable development, and the larger agenda it represents.
In a previous article, the "religion" of sustainable development was brought to light as the agenda of the United Nations for the 21st century, to create a "new world order" (as named by a chief strategist behind the plan, not this author), with nature as the organizing principle for life. So just what are the dangers of a plan which asserts that a central governing body (the U.N.) should monitor whether or not the world's choices are considered sustainable? Who would not want to live in a world where the earth God created is protected, cherished, and preserved? What kind of negative effects could possibly come from reducing overconsumption of the world's resources?
The key to understanding the agenda behind sustainable development is to recognize that it is not ultimately about the environment, but about control. All of the concepts, buzzwords, and jargon related to this new world agenda - sustainable development, globalism, pluralism, social justice, biodiversity, sustainable use, biotechnology, environmental protection, smart growth, and global warming, just to name a few, are public-friendly masks to an insidious and progressive agenda to bring about a communistic global village, controlled by the United Nations and the organizations that support it. In this new world, which is outlined in the U.N.'s agenda for the 21st century, called Agenda 21, and the Convention on Biodiversity (conceived as the practical tool for implementing the objectives of Agenda 21), rights of the individual are sacrificed for the common good in just about every area of life, with the global governing body making the determination as to just what that "common good" is.
The objectives of sustainable development, or the new world order, would involve fundamental overhauls of every area of society. Just what are those overhauls, in the name of helping the environment? The scope of the changes are so monumental and far-reaching, including areas of agriculture, environment, labor, trade, technology, and politics (just to name a few), that only three of the most fundamental areas will be addressed in this article.
Control of land and population
Some of the earliest objectives of sustainable development arose in 1976, at the U.N. Conference on Human Settlements, where a formal policy on land usage was adopted for the first time by the United Nations. In the Report of Habitat: United Nations Conference on Human Settlements, which arose from this conference, the vision for sustainable usage of land is delineated: "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 and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole. Public control of land use is therefore indispensable...." Further recommendations from the conference stated "All countries should establish as a matter of urgency a national policy on human settlements, embodying the distribution of population...over the national territory" and "Such a policy should be devised to facilitate population redistribution to accord with the availability of resources". (A.1) Put simply, under this plan, global governing bodies will control private property as they deem appropriate in the interest of the greater good, and will force people to move to places they designate.
Another glaring way the new world order is gaining power over land and population is through the Convention on Biodiversity, a treaty that became international law in 1993. According to Article 8 of the treaty, nations must "establish a system of protected areas or areas where special measures need to be taken to conserve biological diversity". According to the Global Biodiversity Assessment, which was published as the "how to" guidelines for implementing the Biodiversity treaty, "This [protected areas] means that representative areas of all major ecosystems in a region need to be reserved, that blocks should be as large as possible, [with] buffer zones [and] corridors [that] should connect these areas. This basic design is central to the recently-proposed Wildlands Project in the United States." The Wildlands Project, seen as the principal design for biodiversity protection, calls for returning at least 50% of the land in every state to wilderness, including the relocation of those living in the designated areas to high density urbanized "islands". In a press release on the Global Biodiversity Assessment, the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) iterated: "It concludes that biodiversity management must...be fully integrated into all aspects of landscape management, including agriculture, socio-economics, and other relevant fields". Essentially, the Global Biodiversity Assessment, along with the Convention on Biodiversity, give the government the right to seize private property according to their determination as to whether that land is being used in accordance with their own agenda.
Control of education and thought
An example of the control over education and thought that will be condoned under this new world order can be found in an organization which is part of the U.N., called the Eden Foundation, created by Donald Sagar, who is a representative to the United Nations' Association for World Education. In recent correspondence with Tom DeWeese, President of The American Policy Center and editor of The DeWeese Report, Sagar wrote, "Because of the relentless increase in the quantity and complexity of knowledge in the world, we are experiencing a clash between cultures that prevents all but the most capable of surviving with any meaningful identity intact". In other words, the problems in the world are due to the fact that people have too much knowledge. Sagar's project aims to define what are acceptable ideas and thoughts, and promotes, according to his website the Eden Project, "the return of control to the questioning process".
This idea of "too much free information" is propagated in the words of Keith Smiley, President of Mohonk Consultations, a consultant group to the U.N.: "The planet and its people have been experiencing an information explosion. The uncontrolled expansion of information is dangerous since it tends to diffuse meaning and purpose". More evidence of thought control comes in a letter by Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary General of the U.N.: "I am referencing to the need to establish a body of objective information to serve as a foundation for global education..." Just what is this body of objective information? Scientific data, perhaps? Absolutely not. Objective information in the new world order, also known as globally-acceptable truth, are ideas that conform to the agenda of the global elite. Consider this quote in the preamble to the Convention on Biodiversity: "Where there is a threat of significant reduction or loss of biological diversity, lack of full scientific certainty should not be used as a reason for postponing measures to avoid or minimize such a threat." More succinctly: Science shouldn't get in the way of the biodiversity agenda.
To see evidence of this more clearly, one only has to look at the recent scandal of hacked e-mails from Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia in Britain, one of the most influential institutions on global warming in the world. The e-mails uncover attempts by scientists to cover up and falsify scientific data that do not support the idea of global climate change. One e-mail example: "I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline". Climategate has dealt a serious blow to the global warming arm of the sustainable development agenda, but most importantly it illustrates yet again that objective truth is not based on scientific data but on the agenda of the new world order.
Control of industrialization
The new world order despises industralization and progress, and advocates a return to "traditional" forms of society, which would do less damage to the environment. A 1995 report from the U.N.'s Report on Global Governance summarized it like this: "Human activity…combined with unprecedented increases in human numbers…are impinging on the planet’s basic life support system. Action must be taken now to control the human activities that produce these risks". In publications from the Worldwatch Institute, one of the three most influential non-governmental organizations (NGOs) behind Agenda 21, "The middle-income class, three billion people mostly in Asia and Latin America, causes far less harm [than Americans]. Their diet of grains and local produce, their moderate buildings, their buses, railroads, and bicycles, and their modest stocks of durable goods all exemplify a life-style that is environmentally sound. Advanced technologies could make that life-style more comfortable, but its basic outlines define the environmental ideal." Another way of saying it: Progress is bad for the environment. Although it may be good for humanity, this is a world in which nature, not humans, reigns supreme. The prevention of modern development, as well as population control, are significant visions for the new world order.
Another WWI publication explains, "The world's healthy ecosystems are found predominantly in areas under indigenous control". In spite of its stated objectives to increase the quality of life of mankind, by establishing "protected areas" for biodiversity all over the world, (areas where industry of any kind is prohibited), Agenda 21 has prevented development, particularly in third-world countries, that would dramatically improve the quality of life for millions of people. Because in the new world order, nature is king, not humanity. Even in its section on combating poverty (Section 1, Ch. 3.2), Agenda 21 reveals that its primary goal is the environment rather than people: "While managing resources sustainably, an environmental policy that focuses mainly on the conservation and protection of resources must take due account of those who depend on the resources for their livelihoods". Translation: We have to remember the people too, even though our main focus is the environment.
The agenda of sustainable development is actually anti-development, because modernization is, according to the new world order, dangerous to the environment. And environment trumps humanity. Consider the plan for the world according to the Global Biodiversity Assessment (1995, p. 773): "A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 1 to 3 billion would be possible. An 'agricultural world,' in which most human beings are peasants, should be able to support 5 to 7 billion people . . . .". Few people recognize that the agenda behind "taking care of the environment" advocates the return of humanity to peasantry. The editor of Wild Earth, the Journal in which "The Wildlands Project" was published, sums it up most clearly: "Does all the foregoing mean that Wild Earth and The Wildlands Project advocate the end of industrial civilization? Most assuredly."
How has this agenda influenced Roanoke? Roanoke is now a proud participant of ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability - one of the groups most instrumental in creating Agenda 21. ICLEI is in charge of creating and implementing the policies of sustainable development in every community. As one example of how these policies have been implemented, according to roanokeva.gov, "Environmental Management Systems have been put in place in the Transportation, Solid Waste, and Fleet Management divisions to monitor significant environmental impacts in the area of water conservation, engine idling, storm water maintenance, leaks from vehicles, recycling, proper disposal of hazardous wastes and spillage of fuel during fueling transfers". Also, at Roanoke's Creative Community Leadership Program (CCLP), a recent initiative was adopted for Roanoke to become "carbon neutral" by 2030. An example of some of the recommendations for re-zoning in Roanoke as part of smart growth can be found here. While many of these local changes are subtle, and seem positive on the surface, they belie the scope of how effectively the global agenda for sustainability has permeated our community.
So why should Americans be concerned about this new world order, disguised in the environmentally-friendly movement for sustainable development? Because it uses a misprioritized (and non-scientifically based) view of nature to create a communistic global society of control, in which people are secondary to the environment in which they live. Because it masks an insidious plan of social overhaul beneath the worthy responsibility of taking care of the planet. Because it elevates nature to a spiritual status, and relegates people to fall somewhere beneath. Because it propagates belief as fact, and requires unequivocal adherence to that belief. Because the basic values of freedom, private property, individual rights, and scientific truth are bulldozed in favor of group think and centralized control. Because if it succeeds, homeschoolers, and all Americans will be forced to forfeit most of the values they now hold dear.
