Letter: You and the U.N.
Your property rights and land use are changing. How? why? A brief U.N. timeline involving your land use will help you understand how the past, present and future are evolving. A U.N. ideology of international redistribution of wealth, resources and land using the environment is as follows:
1987—The United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development originates the term "sustainable development" in their official report titled "Our Common Future," authored by Gro Harlem Brundtland, VP of the World Socialist Party. He tied the environment to the Socialist goals of international redistribution of wealth. In numerous documents over the years, the U.N. reiterates this consensus: "Private land ownership is a principal instrument of accumulating wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice. Public control of land is therefore indispensable."
1992—U.N. Conference on Environment & Development, aka, Earth Summit I. "Sustainable development" becomes a powerful force in a U.N. initiative called the "U.N. Sustainable Development Agenda 21." More than 178 nations adopted Agenda 21 as an official policy. President George H.W. Bush was the signatory for the U.S. Agenda 21 was also known as the "Biodiversity Treaty."
1993—President Clinton’s Executive Order #12852 creates the President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD). Its purpose was to translate the recommendations set forth in Agenda 21 into public policy administered by the federal government. PCSD created the American version of Agenda 21, called "Sustainable America—A New Consensus." Within its "statements" is #8: "We need a new collaborative decision process that leads to better decisions, more rapid change, and more sensible use of human, natural and financial resources in achieving our goals." A "consensus process" was created. The PCSD adopted more than 150 policy recommendations taken directly from the U.N.’s Agenda 21. Sustainable development uses three components: land use, education, and population control/reduction. Sixteen states mandated these changes, including Virginia under Gov. Kaine.
2012—Earth Summit II. In Rio, hosted by Mikhail Gorbachev, has great plans for future implementations, including an Earth Charter and Earth Bill of Rights.
Republicans and Democrats continue to put a powerful environmental framework in place nationally and globally, supporting the same blueprint for expanding government control of land use. Two thousand counties across the U.S. have adopted almost the same "comprehensive plans" using sustainable development "visioning" and "consensus" implementation processes. New zoning regulations, international building/land codes, etc., accompany them. For a nationwide understanding, go to http://www.freedom21.org and, for Virginians, http://www.campaignforliberty.com.
Mathews updated ours recently using sustainable development "visioning." Carroll County, Md., just threw their plan out; the first in the nation to do so.
Your property rights are decreasing. Is the environment improving? This will become a big issue. Homework is required.
