I am very concerned that most people are unaware that the United Nations is subtly working to change the very foundations and culture of our country. The UN adopted Agenda 21 14 June 1992 as a “comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the UN system, government and major groups in every area in which humans impact the environment.” Agenda 21 ostensibly seeks to promote “sustainability” (the latest revisionist word for “environmentalism,” since Americans have learned too many negative things about environmentalism.)
Agenda 21 promotes European socialist goals that will erode our freedoms and liberties. Congress never approved Agenda 21, although Presidents Obama, Clinton and George H.W. Bush have all signed Executive Orders implementing it. Our Constitution, however “prohibits states or their subdivisions from entering into any treaty, alliance or confederation with foreign political organ.” Article 1, Sec. 10.
Although not fully implemented, this plan has worked under the radar in most every area of our life. International codes and countless regulations infuse our building, fire, fuel gas, wild land, zoning and other areas. Additionally, land (Eminent Domain), plants, animals, education (Common Core Curriculum), water, transportation (limited refineries) and more are being altered because American’s affluence is seen as a major problem which needs to “be corrected.”
It’s important that every citizen make an effort to learn how our lives are being drastically changed by the UN. Why would any citizen want the United Nations to influence our codes and principles let alone dictate to us? The internet offers much information on “Agenda 21.” Also, the Western Thumb TEA Party will focus on this topic at its March 7 meeting at the Vassar Public Library. I am hopeful that many of our citizens will take advantage of this opportunity to learn more of this threat to our lives.
