      This is an old article published in the San Jose Mercury newspaper.
      It still applies and should be reprinted in every paper nationwide.
      Jack has given permission for reprints of the original article.
      Thank you,

      Origins of Sustainable Development and Agenda 21
      By Jack Ward
      Unfortunately many individuals, businesses, and groups don't understand the
      origins of Sustainable Development and its implementing document Agenda 21.
      A series of chronological events will give you a better picture of how and
      why Sustainable Development and its implementing document Agenda 21 came
      about. Sustainable Development and Agenda 21 are based on the premise that
      the environment is threatened, and only drastic action can save us.
      Therefore, it is only appropriate that we start with 'Earth Day'. The first
      'Earth Day' on April 22 1970. Was it a coincidence that the first Earth Day
      was held on Vladimar Lenin's birthday or was this a precursor of things to
      come?
      In 1972, Maurice Strong was the Secretary-General of the first UN Conference
      on Environment and Development. The conference recommended the creation of
      the United Nations Environmental Program. Strong
      became it's Executive Director in 1973. For the next decade the UN held
      numerous conferences focusing on developing a strategy supporting this UN
      plan.
      In 1987, The World Conference on Environment and Development was held. Gro
      Harlem Brundtland, Vice President of the World Socialist Party, was named as
      Chair. The Brundtland Commission Report, entitled 'Our Common Future',
      contained most of the concepts of 'Sustainable Development'. The report
      called on the world to attain Sustainable Development by limiting
      consumption, controlling population, redistributing resources, taxing energy,
      and a host of other socialistic tools meant to control people.
      The Brundtland Commission claimed that most of the world's problems were
      environmental issues and discovered that the environment was a
      popular emotional issue that they could use to rally fellow travelers.
      Environmental issues were established as the primary UN battle-cry to
      mobilize the world. Most of the UN conferences relate to elements
      of Sustainable Development. Maurice Strong, now a major player in the UN,
      was also member of the Brundtland Commission.
      Also in November 1987, Mikhail Gorbachev told his Politburo:
      'Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost
      and Perestroika and democracy in the coming years. They are primarily for
      outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the
      Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the
      Americans and let them fall asleep.'
      and later Gorbachev wrote:
      " Those who hope that we shall move away from the socialist path will be
      greatly disappointed. Every part of our program of perestroika -- and the
      program as a whole, for that matter -- is fully based on the principle of
      more socialism . . . . We will proceed toward better socialism rather than
      away from it. We are saying this honestly, without trying to fool our own
      people or the world. Any hopes that we will begin to build a different,
      non-socialist society and go over to the other camp are unrealistic and
      futile. We, the Soviet people, are for socialism."
      In 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed after just over seventy years of failed
      political policies. Now Mikhail Gorbachev needed a job. He quickly endorsed
      the UN's Brundtland Commission report and went on the create the 'Green
      Cross', a socialist environmental organization.
      In 1992, Maurice Strong was the Secretary General of the U.N. Conference on
      the Environment and Development. This summit (more commonly known as the Rio
      Earth Summit ) set up a new UN alliance formally accepting the premise of
      Sustainable Development.
      Maurice Strong said :
      "..... It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the
      affluent middle class - involving high meat intake, consumptions of large
      amounts of frozen and convenience foods,
      Continued from Page 2
      use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work place air-conditioning, and
      suburban housing - are not sustainable. " and ... "It is simply not
      feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally by individual nation
      states, however powerful.
      " In June of 1993, President Clinton formed the President's Council on
      Sustainable Development to develop a national strategy for Sustainable
      Development.
      In April of 1994 Maurice Strong ( now Chairman of the Earth Council ) and
      his buddy Mikhail Gorbachev ( president of the 'Green Cross' )
      collaborated in creating the Earth Charter Initiative. The influence of the
      'Green Cross' and 'Earth Charter' are evident in the Sustainable Development
      and Agenda 21 movement.
      A clue to the real purpose of Sustainable Development and Agenda 21 may
      be in
      'Green Cross Earth Charter Philosophy'.
      Principle 14 - 'Global Sovereignty', states :
      " .... Humanity, must not be subservient to the rules of state (
      national) sovereignty, demands of the free market or individual rights. The
      idea of Global
      Sovereignty must be supported by a shift in values which recognize this
      Common Interest. "
      In 1996, the President Clinton released the 'Presidents' Council on
      Sustainable Development' (PCSD ) This confirmed the administrations
      commitment to UN's Sustainable Development and Agenda 21 plan.
      Between 1992 and 1997 the UN and the NGO's worked together to create a
      blueprint for Global control. In 1997 the UN held the Rio +5 Conference.
      This was a follow-up to the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. The Rio +5 Forum was an
      Agenda 21
      "solutions-creating" workshop for organizations engaged directly in this
      campaign.
      The workshops formulated approaches and strategies for implementing Agenda 21
      and achieving Sustainable Development. Each region was to develop a plan to
      implement Sustainable Development. These plans conform to the UN Agenda 21
      blueprint. The Santa Cruz Local Agenda 21 mirrors the UN blueprint. The
      purpose of the Monterey Sustainable Development forum was to expand
      Sustainable Development and Agenda 21
      throughout the Monterey Bay area.
      Santa Cruz County Supervisor Walt Symons recently wrote to a constituent :
      " Please be assured that I think it ( Agenda 21 ) is the most unreasonable,
      thoughtless, socialistic, non-productive piece of pseudo-policy I have ever
      read
      since I have been in office. "
