Dont know how many of you have heard of this, but it is the UNs plan for world government and personal control, and they have enacted policies to push towards it.

https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/content/documents/Agenda21.pdf[^]

Right off the bat though it gets it wrong. "We are confronted with a perpetuation of disparities
between and within nations, a worsening of poverty, hunger, ill health and illiteracy"

Nope, we are healthier, richer, more literate, than at anytime in history, and the only reason we wont get any more or better is because these are limited by lifestyle and choice. So we have pretty much peaked. Of course the third world needs to catch up (and it is).


"continuing deterioration of the ecosystems" The earth is 20% greener since the 80s Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds | NASA[^]

BBC - Earth - How the River Thames was brought back from the dead[^]

We have abused the planet, but we are getting what we need from less and less of it, agricultural production is so refined these days, and we have undone much of the damage we did.

We need to do more, for sure, but we are going in the right direction already.

And with global birth rate down to about 2.7 kids per couple in 20 years human global population will peak.

Clearly all the fears of the late 20th century environmentalists, Erlich etc, have been resolved, thus obviating the need for the colossal global socialism Agenda21 represents.
