A little light
note of the part halfway down:
- "Property rights are not absolute and unchanging, but rather a
complex, dynamic and shifting relationship between two or more parties, over
space and time." The legal approach to this UN view of property rights is
discussed in Section 18.104.22.168 (pages 786-787):
- Plants and animals are objects whose degree of protection depends
on the value they represent for human beings. Although well intentioned, this
specifically anthropocentric view leads directly to the subordination of
biological diversity, and to its sacrifice in spite of modern understanding of
the advantages of conservation. We should accept biodiversity as a legal
subject, and supply it with adequate rights. This could clarify the principle
that biodiversity is not available for uncontrolled human use. Contrary to
current custom, it would therefore become necessary to justify any
interference with biodiversity, and to provide proof that human interests
justify the damage caused to biodiversity."3
But that is only the tip of the
iceberg. Be sure to read the whole thing.
"...the federal government is actively
funding stakeholder councils throughout the country to begin the process of
creating "sustainable communities" as envisioned in Agenda 21. Sustainable
communities are essential to the concept of land use and resource management
envisioned by the Global Biodiversity Assessment, and required by the Convention
on Biological Diversity.
Ultimately, if the UN plan is realized, at least half of the land area of
North America will be converted to wilderness, off limits to human beings.
An additional 25% will be controlled by government in collaboration with
"civil society" in which individuals will have to prove that a proposed use will
not harm biodiversity.
Humans are to be relocated into "sustainable communities" that are described
as "islands of human habitat" surrounded by natural areas. It is now clear that
the UN's land use policies, though refined over time, have had a predetermined
objective from the very beginning. That objective -- as bizarre as it may sound
-- is to place all land and natural resources under the ultimate authority of
the UN. "
"Virtually every activity, conference, and
action plan devised by the UN since the early 1970s has been aiming toward the
ultimate objective of eventual global governance founded upon the principles of
collectivism, central planning, and omnipotent enforcement, disguised by the
language of equity, social justice, and environmental protection."
