Is Representative Government being Bypassed?
Is a parallel structure, via NGO's, being set up?
Are our elected officials (Senators, Representatives, Commissioners, Mayors, Councils,Trustees) breaching their fiduciary duties?
Have you heard about Agenda 21?
Sustainable Development, SmartGrowth and other terminology is commonly used.
Most American's haven't. It is essentially a blueprint for a "sustainable world" that was introduced at the UN Conference in 1992. The philosophy behind Agenda 21 is that our environmental problems are the number one problem that we are facing, and that those problems are being caused by human activity. Therefore, according to Agenda 21 human activity needs to be tightly monitored, regulated and controlled for the greater good. Individual liberties and freedoms must be sacrificed for the good of the planet.
Learn about the facts: 1) Regional governance, 2) Overview of planning organizations, 3) Important Stakeholders, 4) Building "One" America 5) Fair Housing regulations.
