Is our planet a global plantation?

Maurice Strong is the most influential man in the environmental movement; his actions have already impacted your life in ways you don’t suspect. He says his philosophy is socialism and his methodology capitalism.

Further, he says “After all, sustainability means running the global environment — Earth Inc. — like a corporation: with depreciation, amortization and maintenance accounts. In other words, keeping the asset whole, rather than undermining your natural capital.”

Strong led the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro that produced Agenda 21, the U.N. plan for the 21st Century which will govern every aspect of your life once fully enacted.

The policies of Agenda 21 were activated in the U.S. in 1993 by Executive Order of Bill Clinton and quietly began filtering through a network of federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and civic groups, associations of mayors, aldermen, and supervisors. President George H.W. Bush signed the Rio Accord in 1992 in the best spirit of bipartisanship; he did so anchored offshore on Prince Phillip’s yacht.

Though Nancy Pelosi has ardently wished to present Agenda 21 to Congress for ratification since 1993 it has been thought opposition would be too widespread; hence the stealth adoption of Agenda 21 policy through the President’s Council on Sustainable Development.

The current president says he is 100 percent behind the goals of Agenda 21. His sticking point on presenting it for ratification is that China is not held to the same standards of carbon emission as the United States, the reasons for which are rapidly changing as China becomes more and more interlinked with the United States in debt and trade. The playing field is being leveled and the president has more and more incentive to become unstuck.

Agenda 21 seeks sweeping revolutionary change through activity in three areas: economics, equity and environment. These words don’t mean what you would think they mean.

Economics means moving from private ownership to joint public/private partnership. Equity means replacing the current system of justice with social justice, rights of the individual replaced with rights of society.

Environment means centralized control of all earthly resources under the direction of U.N. governing bodies already in place, and under this term comes educating your children to accept these changes through programs like Earth Day celebrations and educational programs designed to be within UNESCO guidelines, such as the ones your children in public schools are currently enrolled in. Global population control comes under environment as well.

Earth, Inc. will operate as Strong indicates. Even the people will be managed as capital assets. Does this sound like a global village or a global plantation to you? Most of us have worked in corporations, do you want to live in one?
