Ruling Elites and Agenda 21

At our last meeting we discussed Agenda 21 and the elitist attitude behind it. A good example of this attitude is provided in the 1992 book The First Global Revolution by Alexander King & Bertrand Schneider. Both King & Schneider are members of the Club of Rome. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Club_of_Rome The book details what is needed to save the world from humans (that is my somewhat sarcastic interpretation). They list very legitimate concerns that we are facing but like all elitist the only answer to these problems is more government control preferably managed through an all-powerful one world organization.  On the first page of the book is an excerpt from a poem by Omar Khayyam that was used in a stained glass creation by the Fabian Socialist society. This immediately lets you know who they are aligned with. Here are some of the issues that are discussed:

On pages 48 & 49 they discuss sustainable development and the need to bring down the population growth of the industrialized countries. Social Justice is also needed according the authors.They state that this “concept is utopian but one well worth striving for”. This is the main problem with socialist ideas. They are utopian and can never really be achieved. That does not stop them from trying though. Unfortunately the result is untold misery.

On page 67 they discuss technological development and here is something I can actually agree with: “In a strongly technology based culture there will always be a dichotomy between those who understand its workings and those who merely press the buttons. It is of course not necessary to understand electronic theory to enjoy television  but when the microprocessor has spread to make “black boxes” out of nearly all the equipment and artifacts of life, the sophisticated know-how of those that invent and design them and create the software will have soared beyond the comprehension of the many”. They go on to state “The emergence of a priesthood of scientists, technologists and technocrats is hardly desirable and its prevention must be one of the objectives of educational reform”. I would argue that this “priesthood” is already in the service of the ruling elites and technology is a powerful tool for controlling the masses.

On page 115 they mention global warming. This might be one of the earliest uses of this phrase. They state “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea of pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill”. I have no doubt that they genuinely believe in global warming (and the rest of their concerns are genuine, no one likes pollution or famine) but it is curious that they need to “unite us”. Once again the solution is loss of liberty. They conclude with what they perceive the real problem is.  All of these issues are caused by man so logically “the real enemy, then, is humanity itself”.  Feeling warm and fuzzy yet?

The idea that children know more than their elders is brought up on page 117. This reminds me of a speech that Al Gore gave to young teens where he said basically the same thing.

One of the most concerning sections of the book details the number of bureaucrats that are working on this agenda. On page 134 we find this: “In 1977, 52,000 experts took part in 1,020 meetings on the Third World, representing 14,000 work sessions. The ad hoc meetings can be added to the regular day-to-day work of the 20,000 international civil servants of the 110 international organizations that have their headquarters in New York, at the World Bank in Washington, at the European Community in Brussels, at the FAO (United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization) in Rome and in countless regional and subregional agencies in the developing countries”.  Their point was to decry the lack of progress of all these agencies. My point is that every one of these organizations has contempt for the sovereignty of nation states and does not believe that you are entitled to the unalienable rights provided by God that are described in the U.S. Constitution. The scary thing is that these types of organizations have only grown since 1977. How many people are working against your interests today?

Speaking of sovereignty, on page 185 they quote a former president of the Club of Rome: “In the process of interdependence we have all become vulnerable. Our societies are permeable to decisions taken elsewhere in the world. The dynamics of interdependence might be better understood if we think of the globe not in terms of a map of nations but as a meteorological map, where weather systems swirl interdependently of any national boundaries and low and high fronts create new climatic conditions far ahead of them”.  It is obvious that these people think of themselves as the ruling elite and they should rule on a global scale. This book is just one of thousands that display their arrogance toward the common man and the concept of individual freedom and liberty. They are working to push the world toward their hopeless utopian ideal. What are we doing to make sure they do not succeed?
