Every Democrat talking point from 1992 on has been in complete lock step with Agenda 21 as proposed by the U.N. Agenda 21 is nothing more than world wide Marxism being implemented under the guise of Environmental Protection. It's all there, the Model Cities Program, relinquishing our sovereignty to a world government, global wealth redistribution schemes, complete loss of our ability to make our own decisions that concern our daily living right down to what kind of light bulbs we can use in our homes. All of it of course is done under the assumption that there is such a thing as man made global warming.
The world of Marxist philosophy had a shock in 1991, which is the year that the Soviet Union, their home planet, collapsed. With their wold in tatters, they realized that nobody in their right mind would sign onto this form of governance and economic model willingly. Who in their right mind would sign up for mass starvation, global poverty, and a complete loss of freedom. The Marxists needed to find a way to inflict themselves upon us in small doses, and they needed to do it in such a way as to hide the truth of what they were doing. This by the way comes straight out of Saull Alinsky's book, "Rules For Radicals."
Here is a quote from the Agenda 21 Treaty:
Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced - a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action to be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.
Any time you hear Congress Critters or Presidential candidates utter the phrase, "we need to send subtle signals through the markets to get people to change their behavior," hold onto your wallets and your firearms, you are about to be screwed. Soft laws are those micro changes being implemented to force you to see the wisdom of accepting the loss of those very freedoms that we not only hold so dear, but are actually the very foundation upon which every American success has been built. Our society did not become great through some top down planning, nor did we steal that greatness from some other society. It was the basic freedoms which our founders saw fit to fight for, which in fact were bestowed upon us by our creator. Our greatness derives from not being constrained by a ruling class of elites who would seek to implement a sustainability test upon our activities and subject us to this perverse definition of fairness.
Fairness for those who love their lives free is a consistency in the rules by which we all live, and not a leveling off of the results independent of those rules. The reason that the Sudan does not enjoy the life expectancy doubling luxury known as refrigeration is not that we here in the United States some how stole it from them. The reason is that when you hack off the heads of Millions of your own citizens, chances are that one of them was the innovator who would have brought refrigeration to your society. Freedom and constraint work in pretty much the same manner. The basic differences of course are that the leftists do not want that type of innovation and creation of wealth, as it severely impedes upon their ability to control the population at large.
