About the Trigger Word “Sustainable”

After yesterday’s post about the trigger word “entitlement,” someone asked me, “How is sustainable a trigger word? In that it implies the current way is not sustainable? I don’t quite understand it.” I have posted on Agenda 21 before, but some people either weren’t interested, didn’t read my blog then, or haven’t made the connection. I don’t think any of you are “dummies,” but the Agenda 21 For Dummies video [below] summarizes things quite well. As you watch, you’ll learn that “sustainable” became the less offensive code word for “Agenda 21,” another of those global control treaties signed in 1992, along with the dreaded Codex Alimentarius.

The Codex focuses on controlling every aspect of our lives through food, in particular by restricting everything to BigAg and BigPharma, including mandatory rBGH in all cows and milk and the regulation of all foods, crops and natural supplements. Europe is seeing the fruits of Codex in action with the move to criminalize all heirloom seeds just two years after making most herbs and natural remedies illegal. Enforcement presents challenges, but Europeans have already witnessed major restrictions on homeopathic medicines, “novel” foods (i.e. most superfoods that weren’t introduced in Europe until after 1992) and now with seed saving and even growing anything non-GMO-corporate owned.

Agenda 21 focuses on restricting land use. Just as the Codex presents itself as an innocuous attempt to “protect” people from “potentially harmful substances” (like peppermint or organic foods!), Agenda 21 presents itself as a logical, eco-friendly way to build communities. The initial stages make so much sense that many communities find themselves saturated in Agenda 21 dogma and financial agreements before they realize what they’ve signed on for. Like Codex and now the TPP, Agenda 21 aims for total global control, rejecting national sovereignty, state or local laws in favor of corporate-government decided “regulations.” The end game involves postage stamp sized mini-apartments, stacked high into the sky in extremely dense urban areas with rural life ended as “unsustainable” and the Earth left free for only a small number of self-appointed elites. The rest of the world’s population will remain corralled in mega-cities, all in the name of “smart growth and sustainability.”

I won’t post the rather colorful reply I sent to my friend who asked about why some people take offense at the word “sustainable,” as this topic really gets the Fire Faery spewing creative …. well, you get the idea. I love, love, love Mama Earth, but I prefer people directed initiatives, not sneaky, co-opted local “decisions” designed to steal land without compensation, dumb down our population (yes, Common Core follows Agenda 21 guidelines) or turn pristine natural areas into high density housing or business parks in the name of “saving Gaia.” Can you spell crony-Communist hypocrites? I can. Agenda 21 sounds good. At first. But when you dig deeper, you begin to recognize some truly disturbing, yet somehow not surprising, globalist takeover tactics. Although every entity has some kind people working in it, in general, the UN is not your friend.

I will post several videos and links below, so that you can educate yourselves. Goshen is saturated in Agenda 21 initiatives, and many people here find those changes (bike paths, neighborhood associations, revamped higher density downtown buildings) some of the most positive things happening here. These changes seem so innocuous and obviously positive that many liberals cannot understand the massive Tea Party resistance to something as seemingly no-brainer as a bike path. What liberals don’t realize is that this — “Goshen has been selected as 1 of 10 pilot communities to work with the American Planning Association (APA) Sustaining Places program on developing Comprehensive Plan standards. The city will likely be incorporating some of the APA standards into the update of the current comprehensive plan.” — is in-your-face Agenda 21.

Instead of refusing to participate, though, I intend to attend all the planning meetings I can. Why not have influence on where I live? The globalists will push their agenda anyway, tying to standardize guidelines around the globe. Since some of the core principles of Agenda 21 make sense, some of us have decided to attend the meetings to figure out ways to implement needed changes without bowing to federal funding that traps our community into unforeseen agreements. Yes, the creative work around! We cannot honestly look at the state of our world and our land and refuse to recognize that we need to change. The question becomes how will we change? And at whose demand? Since Goshen exists as one of only 10 pilot communities for this project, I view this as a great opportunity to honor the planet in ways that also respect people’s freedom and property, especially our precious, small organic farms.

If you live in one of the following 10 pilot communities, I encourage you to get busy and make your voice heard. You probably won’t get your community out of prearranged agreements, but you can have major influence over the way things go down. As Julian Rose says in his latest fabulous article, “Now You’re in Charge.” Clear your vision and find the courage and conviction to help implement it. When each of us does what we can in our own communities, we ensure the most positive outcomes around the world. Just because some people came up with a tricky global plan for domination, doesn’t mean we can’t pick and choose the best fruits from that plan while refusing to let those fruits’ seeds take over the world. We have influence — far more than most people recognize. The globalist control freaks count on the peon’s not stepping into their own power and responsibility.

According to the Sustaining Places site: “APA has selected 10 pilot communities to help refine the plan standards developed by the Comprehensive Plan Standards Working Group and explore the possibility of a designation program:

Auburn, Washington
Foxborough, Massachusetts
Goshen, Indiana
Memphis/Shelby County, Tennessee
New Hanover County, North Carolina
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Rock Island, Illinois
Seattle, Washington
Savona, New York
Wheeling, West Virginia

“These communities were selected based on the following criteria:

Size of jurisdiction
Geography
Stage in comprehensive planning process
Commitment to monthly conference calls and attendance at the National Planning Conference (NPC) in Atlanta April 2014

“If you have comments or questions, send an e-mail to compplan@planning.org .”

Below you’ll find some of the best videos and links I’ve found, which explain Agenda 21. If you know what you’re dealing with, you can much better navigate the fine line between empowered, intelligent communities ready for the future … and complete global dystopia living in shoe boxes without a breath of fresh air, individuality or freedom. You decide by your vision and your actions.

For those who think this is all Right-Wing conspiracy crazy talk, I’d suggest you visit the site: Democrats Against U.N. Agenda 21.

The following video shows a Democrat Pro-Choice Lesbian speaking to a Tea Party luncheon, because these people recognize the need to work together:
