JOHANNESBURG, South Africa The upcoming World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg promises to be three times larger than the Rio Earth Summit 10 years ago, and over 10 times larger than the first earth summit held in Stockholm in 1972. While most people still do not understand what sustainable development is, there is no doubt that, in the future, they will know exactly what it is because it will be literally shoved down their throats whether they want it or not. They will not be able to farm, produce, manufacture, serve a meal in a restaurant or live without understanding how their actions will harm the environment and use up resources.
There are many things that make this conference completely different and very historic with regard to the impact on humankind. First the name says it all. Unlike the two previous environmental meetings in 1972 and 1992, this is a summit that means that the kings, princes, presidents and prime ministers of this world are expected to be in attendance. Second, the name tells you that sustainable development is the life system of the environmental agenda.
The key concept behind sustainable development is that the earth has finite resources with too many people. This concept was developed by the Brundtland Commission in the mid-1980s at the request of the U.N. General Assembly. By 1991, people like Prince Charles were commending them for bringing sustainable development into all our vocabularies. Obviously, he wasn't thinking of most Americans.
The environmental agenda and its underlying principles which were made public 10 years ago in Rio are pagan-based. For the first time in human history and since the handing down of Mosaic Law centuries ago a group of high-minded globalists, bent on recreating the Tower of Babel, decided to play God. The Earth Summit's Programme of Action, "Agenda 21," basically inverts/perverts Genesis 1, 2 and 3 by making the earth dominant over man and demoting man to the status of a plant or animal and a destroyer of the ecosystem. A sub-component of sustainable development is biological diversity or bio-diversity.
The thesis behind "Agenda 21" is that the world has too many people and finite resources. Therefore, the resources must be protected and controlled so that you and I don't use them all up with the United Nations becoming the enforcer and protector of all of the earth's resources.
Did you know that you and I already know part of the sustainable development message? Within the last 30 years we have heard that there are too many people and that the population must be reduced. Schools now endorse abortion, condom distribution and homosexuality (no procreation) as a way to reduce the population. Universities, colleges and vocational institutions now teach "Agenda 21" in environmental classes. Most houses recycle plastic bottles and tin cans. Once a week, the neighborhood knows if you are a good global citizen by the recycling bin in front of your house. But sustainable development is much more than this.
In looking to understand what is going to take place in Johannesburg, it is phase two of a global agenda of control. Phase one began in 1972, in Stockholm, when the U.N. convened the first conference on the environment. From that time until now, the foundation, structure and infrastructure of "Agenda 21" has been put in place. For example, with regard to biological diversity, there have been 20 conferences and agreements that have produced 13 conventions and numerous other multilateral environmental agreements. With regard to water, there have been 50 major conferences and international agreements, with regard to agriculture there have been 16 conferences and agreements with five conventions and in the area of energy, there have been 14 conferences and agreements with two conventions.
While there is some overlap in these figures since some of the mega-conferences covered more than one area, 20 conventions says it all. Most of them are in some stage of being ratified and implemented globally. The impact of what this means is far too complex and onerous for most of us to even imagine. While most are being told that the U.N. is protecting the environment, they really are playing God and re-ordering what God created and the balance of nature that has served humanity well throughout all of history until 1992.
Furthermore, the Draft Plan of Implementation of the World Summit on Sustainable Development promises to put teeth into the above conventions, agreements and conferences. Their goal is to make the 21st century a Sustainable one.
How would you like to be on a permanent Weight Watchers type of diet in everything you do? The bottom line to this TOTAL REORDERING OF THE PLANET is to "change unsustainable patterns of consumption and production." Some of this re-ordering will be reasonable better use of resources through better production patterns but the rest will put each one of us into a global straitjacket. How would you like to be fined for throwing away food or buying something that you did not need? While the document does not say they will do that, if you read between the lines, this just might not be so far off.
The words of an old hymn say it all, "There's not a plant or flower below But makes thy glories known, And clouds arise and tempests blow by order from thy Throne."
I would add Dr. Michael Coffman to this list.
Unfortunately we are losing this one. Government schools and television are completely indoctrinating children with this crap.

I would also add Berit Kjos http://crossroad.to/ (If anyone doesn't understand what AGENDA 21 is, Berit explains it here), and Carol W. LaGrasse at Property Rights Foundation of America http://www.prfamerica.org/RussiansMayOwnLand.html. (Notice the title of that article. After reading that article, please take a few moments to read the short articles at the "Property Rights - International" Link, and then link to the homepage.) At the Property Rights International Link is an article entitled "JAPAN RECRUITS THE UNEMPLOYED TO INVENTORY WILDLIFE - Modern Version of "New Deal" Makes Work in Environment and Education (or link here: http://www.prfamerica.org/Japan-Recruits-Unemployed.html.) It talks about make-work entailing counting deer droppings, inventorying litter on city streets, catching snails, etc. PLEASE read this one!
Then go here to Prince Charles' New Deal Program "What is New Deal?" http://www.newdeal.gov.uk/homesub1.asp and the Environment Task Force http://www.thesite.org/newdeal/newdeal_gateway/env1.html. "WHAT IS THE ENVIRONMENT TASK FORCE?........It is a network of organisations working to improve our environment. The work they do includes projects which IMPROVE RUN-DOWN ESTATES [The new plantations??], save energy and water, repair homes, RECYCLE WASTE AND LOOK AFTER THE COUNTRYSIDE........" Britain has a lot of this garbage that mirrors our own. We call it School-to-Work (i.e., the Workforce Investment Act. At one time, the Utah school-to-work website was touting taking kids out of class to learn how to clean sewer lines and dismantle bombs, all in co-ordination with their "employment partners". That's not what they called them, but all this is doing is training kids to do the dirty work of the global elite, subsidized by taxpayers of course, while our manufacturing jobs are exported to places where slave labor abounds and worker benefits and environmental controls do not apply.). Joan Veon and others say this is emanating from HRH Prince Charles, and what starts there eventually makes it over here.
At this link FREEDOM ENIGRES http://www.prfamerica.org/FreedomEmigresIndex.html read about a Mennonite family who got tired of fighting UN-driven Uncle Sam and moved to Costa Rica, where "............. After my third visit to Costa Rica this year I'm convinced that there is a place in the world where peace and freedom is respected more than in America. I find it fascinating to see how well a people can coexist and interact without full time government babysitters. Costa Rica's government is not very effective or efficient and thus not awfully powerful. This encourages people to look out for themselves and they do a pretty good job of it.........."
There are many others fighting the good fight.
Freepers, please keep them in your prayers.
The key concept behind sustainable development is that the earth has finite resources with too many people.
There's plenty of resources. Especially human resources if it weren't for governments hindering human nature that creates competitive values for self, others and society. Self-proclaimed authorities feeding like parasites off the labor of the creatively productive working class would perish because, like parasites, they cannot produce their own means of sustenance.
This concept was developed by the Brundtland Commission in the mid-1980s at the request of the U.N. General Assembly.
From another post on the same subject:
"Sustainable buggy-whip manufacturers. Sustainable slide rulers. Some things are best put out to obsolete-pasture. Especially those that blame and attack success..."
But these proposals run counter to the ideas that dominate the Johannesburg agenda, where the intellectual climate emphasizes limits on growth, trade and technology. A habitat for half-truths
"Why do they blame and attack success?..."
As people become increasingly prosperous through their own efforts, their dependence on planners, politicians and bureaucrats dwindles as does the power of those officials. A habitat for half-truths
"They seek sustainable status-quo-usurped authority -- self-proclaimed authority. They're parasites feeding off success."
Basically, the environmental movement and its parallels are being used as vehivles for passive-aggressive attacks upon the United States and similar civilizations, and to impose world Marxist concepts.
The first "Earth Day!" event was almost certainly funded with Soviet money, and it was intended to help disrupt our society. As Communists gradually realized that the U.S. would win the Cold War, more and more such efforts were undertaken to try to slow our progress enough so that Communist societies could continue to compete against us.
Likewise, radical feminism was sponsored by Communists. It has only been in the last decade that we've realized that the Founding Feminists, such as Betty Freidan in particular, were closet Communists. It stands to reason that the feminist "issue" was manufactured for the same reason that the environmental issue was used by the Soviets - to help cause chaos in Democratic, Capitalistic societies so that Communism would have an easier time competing against us.
