"Agenda 21 is an United Nations 'action plan' that basically defines how citizens will live in the 21th Century. Under the guise of 'eco-sustainability' and other 'you-must-agree-with' buzz words, the plan ultimately reduces the freedoms and living conditions of citizens, not to mention reduce individual and property rights.
"A major component of this action plan is to get citizens out of rural and suburbans areas to get them to live in dense, highly planned and controlled mega-cities. The elite wants to see citizens use less space, own less land and real estate and they want them to fully depend on state-owned public transportation./Corporations like IBM are highly involved in the creation of these “smart cities.”...
"Other scenarios conceived by Forum for the Future are slightly different but they all have common threads: drastic reduction of rights, privileges and freedoms; constant reference to “an elite” having exclusive rights on cars and other luxuries; state controlling all aspects of life."

The UN Conference on Human Habitats (Habitat II) gives us a glimpse of the planned housing for the New World Order. No doubt our American leaders have noticed that most old towns and communities are fast becoming incompatible with their new rules, plans and government education. They don't fit the new visions of spiritual compromise. Nor would they be welcome in the pluralistic community centers envisioned by the leaders of Habitat ll. After all, uncompromising Christians would disrupt the envisioned solidarity.
Obama's view of government controlled housing fits right into this picture of a new global solidarity. A recent article titled "Mold? Leaky Roof? Obama Administration Says All Americans Must Have 'Healthy Housing:"
"Under the broad banner of 'health,' the federal government not only is telling Americans what to eat, it's also telling us to make our homes safer. This week, the Obama administration released a 'bold new vision for addressing the nation's health and economic burdens caused by preventable hazards associated with the home.' The project has a name: 'Advancing Healthy Housing: A Strategy for Action.'
"'People in the United States spend about 70% of their time in a home,' the announcement said....
"According to the Obama administration, the health and economic burdens from preventable hazards associated with both subsidized and privately owned homes cost billions of dollars. The new strategy 'unifies' federal efforts to advance healthy housing -- 'demonstrating the connection between housing conditions and residents’ health.'...
"Currently, millions of U.S. homes have moderate to severe physical housing problems, including dilapidated structure; roofing problems; heating, plumbing, and electrical deficiencies; water leaks and intrusion; pests; damaged paint; and high radon gas levels. These conditions are associated with a wide range of health issues, including unintentional injuries, respiratory illnesses.... as well as lost productivity in the labor force.
"The federal partners pushing healthy housing include the White House Council on Environmental Quality, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Surgeon General, and Energy Department."
Who hasn't faced chipped paint, broken pipes and water leaks on their property? But these problems don't require government interference! Besides, who would pay the huge cost of examining each house and fixing it to comply with Obama's new rules for home owners?
Will our individual freedoms be smothered by the bureaucratic regulations pushed by elite globalists who want to use and control us as if we were cattle?...
Notes from the 1996 UN Conference on Human Habitats (Habitat II)
Thinking back to that conference, I remember a conversation I overheard at an airport back in 1996. I was flying home from Istanbul's Habitat II and had just landed in New York. I sat down to wait for my next flight.
Moments later another passenger from the same flight sat down right in front of me. Soon a second man -- apparently from the UN headquarters or Washington D.C.-- came rushing in and took the chair next to him. It didn't take long to discover that both men were government insiders who had planned a brief airport conference to discuss the latest steps toward mandatory housing and community standards across America. Apparently, they didn't notice me.
I pulled out my pen and paper and began taking notes. As the two men discussed the new plans for housing and community life, I pondered their schemes. They certainly illustrated what I had learned during the last two weeks.
They planned to replace cars (at least for ordinary citizens) with commuter trains. This new form of rapid transit would stop at each community center along its way. No need for cars! The shopping area would be near the station. The walk or bicycle ride back to their compact condominium would be relatively short. But not too short to provide the daily exercise the new health care system would demand.
The two men made several references to "Bill" Richardson, who would soon be U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Apparently, he had some useful ideas to add to the growing vision of "managed" human habitats and transportation.
Today, the Obama administration is building on decades-old government blueprints for transformation. For example, our 1999 article on The UN Plan for Your Mental Health includes a section on "HEALTHY CITIES and COMMUNITIES."
"The Healthy Cities project was launched by WHO [The World Health Organization] in the early eighties. Its web site explains its purpose: 'The Healthy Cities Project helps change the ways in which individuals, communities, private and voluntary organizations and local governments think about, understand and make decisions about health.'
"Today, its guidelines are followed by leaders across America -- whether they use the label "Healthy City" or not. Remember Dr. Satcher's report at the 1998 Healthy People Consortium:
"Healthy City and Healthy Community' initiatives are being pursued throughout the country.... Healthy People 2010 is the United States' contribution to the World Health Organization's call to the nations of the world to renew their commitment to health for all."
It's no accident that the last three words, "health for all," sound like UNESCO's 1990 World Conference on Education for All (EFA). The latter introduced the same six education goals President Bush announced in 1991. EFA's counterpart in the health arena is WHO's Health for All (HFA). And, like Goals 2000, the US branch of UNESCO's outcome-based education system, "a Healthy City is defined in terms of process and outcome."
"WHO's Healthy Cities program works with America's Coalition for Healthier Cities and Communities, whose members may or may not use the WHO labels. But they must all follow the Total Quality Management process which calls for continual monitoring of change and progress. They must also agree to:
- "measure our progress."
- "address the root causes of problems."
- "promote a broader definition of health that includes physical, mental, social, and spiritual dimensions."
- "focus on prevention, wellness and change incentives."
Like the above message, the recent article on "Mold? Leaky Roof? Obama Administration Says All Americans Must Have 'Healthy Housing" warns us that "Healthy Housing" involves five important government steps. And each step begs these questions: At what personal cost for the owner? How perfect must it be? Keep in mind, most private homes will at times face temporary challenges such as rats, mice, heavy rain... even a broken ventilation system.
- Establish healthy homes recommendations (homes should be dry, clean, pest-free, safe, contaminant-free, well-ventilated, and well-maintained and thermally controlled);
- Encourage adoption of healthy homes recommendations (federal, state and local regulations);
- Create and support training and workforce development to address health hazards in housing (train people for new jobs in green energy and construction);
- Educate the public about healthy homes (advertising campaigns telling Americans how their homes ought to be)
- Support research that advances healthy housing in a cost-effective manner (taxpayer-funded grants to study the problem)."
Many homeowners who have cared for their homes through the decades are now unable to pay the added expenses of the countless "federal, state and local regulations!" Was this calamity planned? Does our government hide a more sinister plan that would be carried out when multitudes fail to pay the cost of expensive new regulations?
We don't know the answers, but our Lord does!
