John Holdren, President Barack Obama's Science Czar, has hit upon a new way to accomplish an old goal of his. Holdren, in the 1970s, was an advocate of what he called the "de-development" of the United States, among other things.
CNS News reports that in a recent video interview, Holdren suggested that the de-development of the United States could be accomplished...

Holdren is not a "czar".
He is the head of the Office of Science and Technology Policy.
This is an important position that long predates Obama. Holdren was approved for this position by the Senate.
Holdren is an evil leftist but his position is not one of those B.S. "czar" dealios.
Americans and others living in the developed world would be expected to give up a lot of their prosperous lifestyle so that the wealth that makes it possible could be diverted to the Third World.
Somehow, he thinks we should live a third-world lifestyle to conserve wealth to divert to the actual Third World, while at the same time maintaining First World levels of productivity to generate that excess wealth.
There are a lot of rural area returning to wilderness (and state ownership). The state just bought some 2300 acres of farmland near me. They farmer couldn’t afford the ever encroaching regulations regarding water among other things so he sold it all off.
I took a ride south of my old hometown a while back and was amazed at the number of empty farms.
Fiefdoms... Somehow, they've got us divided into fiefdoms - thus the push toward "sustainability".
Maurice Strong, Peter Singer.... It's a long list.
The trump ace of the whole strategy was supposed to be global warming; Romney better be willing to look long and hard at his endorsement of that concept if Holdren’s ideas are to be pitched into the dung heap of history where they belong.
Agenda 21. Treason.
They fully intend to destroy the most successful nation on earth, by turning in into something like Communist Cuba.
Slavery is Freedom.
Would this be the video? (page down a bit)
The de-development of Detroit was a prototype.
They use the free market because some folks care more about money than right and wrong. Look at Richard Lugar, first republican to sell out to the Chicago Climate exchange as the owner of a “carbon sequestration” project. Money for doing nothing more than letting trees grow and all he had to do was screw we the people.
On the other hand, the government is right there to entice even us little people with tax breaks. Locally we have the “Raisin Valley Land Trust” they offer a non development contract to people along the river and the government backs them up with a tax break. The only problem is that it renders the land forever useless because the contract stands even after a sale. There ain’t a tax break in the world worth selling my rights or my soul.
And you can bet that the elites will stalk, bribe, lure and buy the women they prefer.
Your daughter may have to decide on ‘Survive or Starve’.
Agenda 21 by another name.
“Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not”
“Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise”
“A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force.”
I wonder if Holdren is bucking for a job as Obama’s speech writer.
Overpopulation was an early concern and interest. In a 1969 article, Holdren... argued, "if the population control measures are not initiated immediately, and effectively, all the technology man can bring to bear will not fend off the misery to come. In 1973, Holdren encouraged a decline in fertility to well below replacement in the United States, because "210 million now is too many and 280 million in 2040 is likely to be much too many."
We are over 300 million already, 30 years sooner than he expected, and we do not have any resource shortages... and he's a White House advisor on science. Amazing.
