Agenda 21

Post by manas » Sat Nov 15, 2014 8:39 pm

Hi, just thought I'd post the United Nations document here, as I think folks ought to be aware of what is behind some of the actions of their governments. One of the aims is to take people out of natural settings, and make them live in cities. Large swathes of land are to be effectively barred to ordinary folks, and there will be zones where 'guards' will be in place, to prevent us ordinary rabble from accessing these wilderness areas at all. If you don't believe me, read the document yourself. We are to be increasingly disconnected from Nature, even more than we already are. Do folks like the idea of the direction of society being dictated to them by bureaucrats in the UN?

I've found a video, featuring a very respectable speaker, which might throw some light on this issue:

Regarding moving folks into the cities, this video:

Large swathes of land are already effectively barred to the public and it's no surprise that that area will get bigger.

And even more disturbing, this video. Whatever you might think of his views on AGW, this speaker makes very salient observations about the gradual ceding of real power away from the individual / family / nation state, towards unelected (UN) officials:

then guard what's won without settling there,
without laying claim.

Hi, Manas,
(1) That document is dated 1992. Have you looked for something more recent?
(2) What's the difference between "the direction of society being dictated ... by bureaucrats in the UN" and "our representatives on the peak international body agreeing on the best way forward"?

:coffee:
