Less than two weeks post-election, Don Casey drove 600 miles from Birmingham to Columbus – to educate a group of Ohioans about the shadowy issue of Agenda 21, aka Sustainable Development.
The Ohio Liberty Coalition hosted the statewide meeting on Agenda 21 and Thorium energy on November 17. Mr. Casey, who helped spearhead the anti-Agenda 21 legislation as Vice-chair of Alabama’s Alliance for Citizens Rights (ACR), addressed a group of nearly 200 in central Ohio.
Casey has studied Agenda 21 for twenty years and was instrumental in Alabama’s successful passage of Senate Bill 477.
Casey alerted Ohioans to the little known ramifications of Agenda 21 which result in loss of liberty and usurpation of private property rights through the vehicle of a worldwide agenda with tenets in the dogma of globalism and environmentalism.
Social justice and redistribution of wealth on a worldwide scale are key – it’s about inventory and control of land, humans, and natural resources.
Agenda 21 is the product of the 1992 Earth Summit held by world leaders in Rio de Janeiro who came together to discuss environmental concerns on a global scale. It was decided that sustainable development must be implemented by developed and developing nations. To be effective, nations must work together collectively – and at the local level.
In June 2012, Alabama became the first state to preserve state sovereignty against the United Nation’s Agenda 21 through passage of its Anti-Sustainable Development/Agenda 21 Law.
With the 2012 presidential election in the rear-view mirror, ongoing issues continue to pop up on the radar screen. Agenda 21 has come to the forefront as an issue of concern and is rapidly taking front and center in public awareness.
The purpose here is not to proselytize. Information on Agenda 21 speaks for itself. There is evidence of bi-partisan interest on this topic.
An internet search will yield more than enough information to take you down the rabbit hole of research indefinitely. A trip to the United Nations website is well worth the visit.
The goal of sustainable developement is to incorporate world, national, state, local, and municipal governments along with the business community in implementation under the guise of “sustainability” and earth friendly objectives.
An unscientific survey of personal friends and acquaintances yielded little knowledge on the topic. Most were unaware of Agenda 21 or its implications for U.S. sovereignty – including a local member of the media, a politician, community leaders, and presumably well-informed individuals.
Highlights from Don Casey’s presentation:
- Alabama was the first state to enact Agenda 21 legislation
- 13 other states are looking into passing similar legislation
- Australia has over 7000 treaties with the United Nations, including a fishing ban in the Coral Sea
- Agenda 21 is a well-documented Progressive-Socialist agenda, not a conspiracy theory
- Agenda 21 is being implemented at all levels of government and business, most successfully on the local level
- Nokia, L’Oreal, Proctor and Gamble, Toyota and others have implemented sustainable development
- Differentiated Agenda 21 as “a self-regulating governance system”, not government
Agenda 21 has a code language of its own. According to Casey, talking points or Agenda 21-friendly language includes:
- Sustainable development, smart growth, social justice, regional planning
- Sustainable farming, STAR sustainable communities
- Open space, conservation easements, Green Building Codes, free trade, public/private partnerships, preservation, environmental protection, stakeholders, land use, development, redevelopment, comprehensive planning
- Community service, diversity, visioning, heritage
- Wildlands Project (50 percent of the land to be set aside for non-humans through cores, buffers, and corridors)
Some of Casey’s Agenda 21 handout unsustainables:
- Freedom to travel, own a gas-powered car, live in suburban or rural areas
- Freedom to determine the number of children you may have
- Determine the “rates of harvest” of farms and fisheries
- Eliminates private property rights through eminent domain
- Increases the price on goods and services through artificial shortages and new consumer taxes
- Golf courses, ski runs
- Grazing of livestock, plowing soil, building fences
- Dams and reservoirs
- All industry
- Single family homes, paved roads
- Power line construction
- Economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment, such as capitalism, free markets, and more
Casey showed three short videos from the UK’s 10:10 “No Pressure” campaign during his presentation. The videos, aimed to get individuals and businesses to cut their carbon footprint by 10% in 2010, featured graphic visuals of exploding bodies – one of them a child in a classroom.
