U.N. calls for sustainable development, global governance

September 20, 2010 04:25

Specifically, the Convention on the Biological Diversity; the Convention on the Law of the Sea; and the realization of sustainable development through the implementation of Agenda 21 are high on the priority list for the year.

‘Pundits and politicians who pooh-pooh global governance are finding it increasingly difficult to pretend that the U.N. is not on an aggressive mission to create a:
“…framework of rules, institutions, and practices that set limits on behavior of individuals, organizations, and companies.” (U.N. Development Report, 1999, page 34)’

‘Sustainable development goals are most appealing, and, perhaps, easiest to achieve.  Sustainable development results from the implementation of Agenda 21, which is a non-binding policy document.  Nations are free to implement these recommendations on a voluntary basis – as far as the U.N. is concerned.  In the United States, however, it is a different story.’

‘People – especially politicians – need to step back and consider this question: is the function of government to dictate the behavior of its citizens by limiting their individual freedom?  Marxists must reply with a resounding “yes.”  This is precisely the effect of the U.N.’s version of sustainable development.’

‘Across the nation, private property rights advocates, and increasingly, Tea Party groups, are discovering that they can stop and reverse the sustainable development process that has permeated virtually every community.  Until now, local officials have been coerced and intimidated by federal agencies, and fed the sustainable development kool-ade by U.N.-accredited NGOs, such as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI),  Now, however, local organizations are showing up at city council and county commission meetings, and challenging the assumptions of sustainable development,.’

‘Now is the time to stand up to government and let every governmental entity know that their first responsibility is to the citizens who elect them, and not to the policies adopted by the United Nations.’
