The UN's Power Path: Greening the Globe ^ | April 03, 2003 | Tom DeWeese

Posted on 04/04/2003 5:00:05 AM PST by Stand Watch Listen

Today, as the United Nations appears weakened by its complete failure to be a serious player in the US-Iraq war, many of our nation's leaders dismiss concerns that the organization threatens American sovereignty.

However, the true threat from the UN lies between the lines of numerous, well-orchestrated treaties already in place. These treaties, protocols, and conventions, particularly dealing with environmental issues, are tools with which the UN continues to fulfill its agenda for global governance.

Through those treaties, the UN intends to transform sovereign nations into feudal-like entities by making Nature the central organizing theme for their economy and society.

This is clearly defined in the UN's Biodiversity Treaty which states: "Nature has an integral set of different values (cultural, spiritual and material) where humans are one strand of nature's web and all living creatures are considered equal. Therefore the natural way is the right way and human activities should be molded along nature's rhythms."

This view of society is a major departure from human civilization as it has emerged over thousands of years. It requires changing nearly every aspect of human existence, including how and where we live, grow and prepare food, travel, work and associate. In short, the agenda for global governance seeks to rip apart established human society.

To achieve this environmentalist goal, an agenda has been set in motion through the aegis of United Nations' treaties and agreements. Compliance with those treaties allows the global governance agenda to forcibly work its way down through federal, to state, to local government policy.

One of the major tools for implementing the agenda is another UN treaty called Agenda 21. Like the Biodiversity Treaty, it first surfaced at the UN's Earth Summit in 1992. Agenda 21 is the United Nations' blueprint for the complete restructuring of nations to fit into a proper mold for global governance. Agenda 21 outlines, in detail, the UN's vision for a completely managed society, dictating the process to be used for industry, agriculture, housing development and even education.

This is not just an environmental policy, but an all-encompassing blueprint to rule from an all-powerful central government. It is a "government" devoid of any vote by the citizens affected by its decisions.

The common name for the policy is "Sustainable Development." Americans who profess to love this nation's precious liberty should learn that Sustainable Development is their enemy. Sustainable Development is the "ruling principle" for the implementation of what former Vice President Al Gore called a "wrenching transformation of society."

Wrenching indeed. Sustainable Development calls for changing the very infrastructure of the nation, away from private ownership and control of property to nothing short of a national zoning system, run by non-elected, faceless bureaucrats and special interest groups.

Under Sustainable Development, locally elected officials are no longer the single driving force in making decisions for the community. Most planning is done behind the scenes in non-elected "sustainability councils," armed with truckloads of federal regulations, guidelines and taxpayer money.

According to Sustainable Development policies, air conditioning, convenience foods, single-family homes and cars are among products that have already been determined to be "unsustainable."

The logo used in Sustainable Development literature depicts three connecting circles; each labeled with a defining category of the ruling principle. One is labeled "social equity," another, "economic prosperity," and the third, "ecological integrity." These three categories encompass every aspect of human life and each is a major factor in the agenda for global governance and the demise of national sovereignty and independence.

Social equity and social justice require that the earth's wealth be shared between those who produce and those who don't. It's every welfare program and wealth- redistribution scheme ever devised. It is Communism.

Under Sustainable Development, business is little more than a tool for the social planning managers. Partnerships between business and government decide what kinds of products are to be produced, who will produce them, and how they will be produced. All must be done in accordance with very strict environmentally-correct procedures. Taxes to enforce compliance ensure proper business conduct.

Ecological integrity is the deception used by the social planners to sucker Americans into accepting their timeless schemes for power. In the name of protecting the environment; in the name of social equity and justice, safety and prosperity, Sustainable Development is fast becoming official policy in federal and state governments, and in every large city and small burg in the nation.

The fact is your community is now a "Sustainable Community." There are no exceptions. Do these items sound familiar to you? Have you heard your local officials discussing how to curtail growth and block development? Are they talking about historic preservation and green space? Are they talking about how to control business? Has the subject of public transportation come up? All are part of the agenda under Sustainable Development.

There can be no private property, free enterprise or individual liberty under Sustainable Development. Instead, group thought, plans and actions dictate a well-orchestrated agenda designed to transform America.

This is totalitarianism. It's about controlling our lives with decisions made by committees that will grow more powerful and more oppressive with every passing day and with each new regulation proposed by newly empowered special interest groups. There will be no satisfying their lust for power and no part of our lives will be overlooked.

The logo for Sustainable Development, with its three connecting circles, should be viewed by all who love liberty as the new swastika of our era. There is no greater threat to our way of life.

Sustainable Development is the central tool by which the UN intends to impose its global governance agenda and is the key reason why the UN remains a threat to American independence.

Thanks for your post and for the links for later reading.

The U.N. is a collection of collectivists. It produces nothing.

Close the doors of the UN. I don't believe they care one ounce about human beings except to control the masses for their own agendas. Can you imagine a world all the same? Everyone is the same. No more different cultures, no more different monies; no more history, no more places to visit. Everyone looks and speaks the same. No more learning, no more excelling to be the best and make life better and decent. Oops, I almost forgot(right); only a selected few are allowed to be different because they rule. Oh, this is what I want(not). I want what America was originally founded for. A better life because I MADE A BETTER LIFE, and because my neighbors all made a better life. That's what I call opportuinity for all. As for all these anti-war or anti-americans or whatever; it didn't work for you guys in the 60's and it isn't working now.
