"Agenda 21"? Forget about it. It's passe (this system can't handle diacritical marks). It's sooo last year. It didn't sell, therefore today's United Nations wants nothing to do with it and today's United States has no motivation whatsoever to try to enact it...right?
Wrong. The practical objectives of Agenda 21 were relabelled "Smart Growth" around the turn of the century. Now they've been relabelled once again: "Future Earth."
Karen Bracken shares an article by Susanne Posel that's been published on two different web sites, with different videos. The text is the same on both sites, so no need to use both links unless you want to watch the video clips:
And what, exactly, is this agenda? It owes a lot to Benito Mussolini, who would have called it fascism. Its differences from what Nikita Khrushchev called Communism, or socialism with a theoretical agenda of progress toward communism, are superficial. It's actually more like the Saturday morning cartoon villains' agenda--"We will rule the world!" And it also has much in common with what the science fiction community remember as Soylent Green--in that, in order to create the dream world the planners want to rule, a lot of human death has to be included in the plan.
