Letter: Agenda 21— a brave new world?
I’ve read and re-read Aldous Huxley’s novel Brave New World depicting the world situation far out in the future.
Written in 1931, British author Huxley was not aware of nuclear energy, but he was very much aware of airplanes, helicopters, and the potential of intercontinental rocket travel for passengers.
Everybody in Huxley’s futuristic world was happy -- a drug-induced and sexually promiscuous happiness with the best of food and physical comforts imaginable. Everything, including the world population, was bigger and better than ever before and the world population was growing rapidly.
However, the brave new world of Agenda 21 sees things much differently. For starters, our present world population of 7 billion-plus is unsustainable. Hence, the long-term goal is a world population of 1.5 billion. How can we eliminate 5.5 billion people?
Let’s see what else the United Nations’ scheme calls for. Agenda 21 dictates that 55 percent of all land area must be returned to its “wild state” in order to protect the environment. Dust-producing, polluting farming operations must be drastically reduced, and livestock production must be reduced and eventually eliminated.
Private ownership of air- polluting vehicles will be eliminated along with private home ownership. It will be much more economical and environmentally friendly to house people in multi-story apartment buildings and transport people to and from work in government-operated buses and light rail.
Worldwide famine, starvation, less medical care, disease, and welfare could possibly bring about an elimination of 5.5 billion people over the next century.
Let’s see what the next Rio de Janeiro Conference produces. The Rio Plus 20 Conference is scheduled to convene sometime this summer.
The Wilson County News has published several excellent articles on Agenda 21, yet when asked, many of my friends and neighbors claim to know little about it. What will it take to wake people up?
