Sustainable Development is Deeply Disturbing

This is the most informative pamphlet I could find on it. Does this bother anyone else? It has so many undertones of socialism and totalitarianism that it's disgusting. They're teaching this crap to my children in school, preparing them and brainwashing them to accept the New World Order. I'm not sure what I can do about it, if anything. It's already gone to far for one individual to stop it. I think it would take a massive effort.

You should read the whole pamphlet and do some more research as well. I'm trying to find something more detailed, but that's the best I've got for now.

Did you read the pamphlet? I'm not sarcastic in the slightest. There's direct quotes from Sustainable Development: Agenda 21 in there. I wish I could find the whole bill, but it's 400 pages long and will take me quite some time to read the whole thing and effectively parse the language into normal English (as opposed to legal English).

Yes, I read the pamphlet. It's an unbelievably partisan (in fact, beyond partisan) piece of nonsense, written by an organisation that believes climate change is a conspiracy.


You know what foreign aid is? Yeah, it's the redistribution of wealth to developing countries. This is the kind of thing they are presenting as global socialism or whatever. This is dumb stuff.


And besides, since when is sustainable development only about Agenda 21 anyway? Sustainable development has been a goal of governments for decades, ever since Detroit showed the consequences of excess.

Do some more research. The idea of "sustainable development" is a good one. I totally agree, development should be sustainable. I'm conducting more research into it, but from what I've found about Agenda 21 so far (I'm attempting to find as many sources as possible), it's more about gaining control over people because "the individual can't be trusted," and "higher education is not sustainable," and "people must get rid of the self and work towards the collective." It doesn't sound so pleasant to me.

It's not left, right, middle, top, bottom. It's a policy put through by the UN. No party affiliations, I'm sure no one bothers to read the damned thing when they're handed the crap to start implementing it.

Yes. No-one else is treating this as a serious issue. It's a non-binding agreement that was signed 20 years ago by a Republican President.

Yes, but the only people sending out pamphlets are the fringe of the Republican party, and those companies who have a vested interest in attacking green initiatives (and even they're not too interested because it's so out-there). Nobody else thinks this is remotely important, for the reasons I gave above.

I don't understand why you think this is some conspiracy. I haven't read anywhere, anywhere that it's left side. All I've read is that it has no party affiliations. I've also read about it being implemented. I personally know one of the MA Republican delegates showing me where and how it's being implemented in my area, and showing me copies of some of the paperwork with the words, very distinct, "sustainable development," that have been handed down from "governmental," but not government, bodies. Arizona has opted out of it.

So why did you refer to it as "socialism" in your OP? Socialism is fairly synonymous with the left. As for it not having any party affiliations, no, it doesn't. But the criticism of Agenda 21 is almost entirely based in the Republican fringe, especially the 'Tea Party' movement.

First of all, what is wrong with implementing sustainable development policies? Of course sustainable development policies are being implemented. That is because prior urban planning policies were unsustainable. We cannot have continuous urban sprawl, because it is environmentally and economically disastrous.


Secondly, you seem to have bought the idea that because the Agenda 21 conspiracy theorists say Agenda 21 is a plot to destroy private property under the guise of sustainable development, anything to do with sustainable development must therefore be part of the Agenda 21 conspiracy. There are two problems with this:

1) The Agenda 21 conspiracy theory is derptarded - it does not exist

2) Even if it DID exist, the above is a massive non sequitur. Just because A-21 calls all its evil plans 'sustainable development', does not mean that all sustainable development plans are part of the conspiracy.

Seriously, this is crazy, looper stuff. Even the Republican establishment is embarrassed by it. They were mortified when it got onto the party platform.

Agenda 21 isn't a bill, and it's written in perfectly normal English.  Here it is:

http://www.un.org/esa/dsd/agenda21/res_agenda21_00.shtml

You don't need to read all of it, but even if you just look through it briefly, you'll see that it's comprised of recommendations, not demands, and even then they're kept pretty vague.

The difference between us is that I understand the rule that I broke; it was intentional. If that post were read aloud, I wouldn't want the reader to pause. It sounds more admonishing without the pause. Also, don't start a sentence with "and".

The full implementation of the US's version of A-21 requires that everyone work for the state and only stays where "people are allowed." There will be massive sections of land cut off from any and all human use, and other large sections of land for limited human use. I agree that we need "sustainable development," but I don't agree with big parts of what A-21 states.

I've also read about it being implemented.

That is because prior urban planning policies were unsustainable. We cannot have continuous urban sprawl, because it is environmentally and economically disastrous.

Nothing wrong with making sure we don't destroy the planet we live on. I'm totally okay with keeping nature as is. However, "higher education is not sustainable"?

There are two problems with this:

I didn't know there was any "conspiracy," until I started reading about it. I was specifically looking for verbiage from A-21 so that I could draw my own conclusions. I'm still researching. I plan on reading all 400 pages of the thing.

1) The Agenda 21 conspiracy theory is derptarded - it does not exist

I did not say there was a conspiracy.

2) Even if it DID exist, the above is a massive non sequitur. Just because A-21 calls all its evil plans 'sustainable development', does not mean that all sustainable development plans are part of the conspiracy.

I'm aware of that.

Either you or I will have to find the maps of the cordoned off areas. There's one in the pamphlet that I linked in the OP, but I believe it's a low resolution. I'd also like to see more in-context verbiage that relates to the maps.

The map in the pamphlet has nothing to do with A-21.  FA even admits this in the fine print around the map.  It was created by an environmental activist group years ago.  FA does claim that they have documentary evidence that the UN was planning to use it against the US for the enforcement of a different international agreement, this one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convention_on_Biological_Diversity

However, they have never taken the time to actually show this evidence.  In any case, even if there was such documentation, it's not relevant to A-21.  There are no maps in the agenda, nor directives on how to preserve land.  Here is the relevant section:

http://www.un.org/esa/dsd/agenda21/res_agenda21_10.shtml

I can't actually find that specific phrase in any of the sections using Ctrl+F, but here's the section where they talk about education:

You're right. I'm not saying there's anything sinister. I'm saying what I've read about it is not sitting well with me, and it seems like a very, very bad way to go. Again, I have to do more research. I read some of that, but I plan on reading the entirety of the documentation and parsing it all for myself. I want to know what is defined as sustainable and unsustainable, and what is planned for implementation strategies, and how it will be enforced, if implemented. I have a vague idea on all of those, but I want more solid knowledge.

Again, I was just presenting this information (what little I have) to see what people thought, and maybe to spark people into researching it themselves. Especially since hardly anyone I know has ever heard about this, and one of the main points I read in the education section of the document that is repeated over and over is about "raising public awareness on sustainable development." As far as I know, there's not many people that are aware. Perhaps I'm doing them a favor. I wont know until I've done more research.
