Agenda (Tinfoil) 21 (Hat)

Preservatives have recently started connecting the dots on Agenda 21, and the 'progressive' shape-shifters have naturally started calling us conspiracy theorists. Never mind the fact that Agenda 21 is on full display for all to see, where they say they intend to do precisely what we say they are doing! You'd think they'd take the website down. But no matter. It's all archived now anyway. There's no plausible deniability.

Part of the reason that the conspiracy theory attack seems to gain traction is that Agenda 21 is broken up into smaller pieces, like a jigsaw puzzle, so the useful idiots on the ground who are actually busy putting together the corner pieces, can't see the big picture, until the whole thing is grandly moved into place, when it would be too late. So much for government deriving its just power from the consent of the governed.

So, who are the useful idiots?

Education: The teachers, who are blithely "teaching" students e.g., Connected Math -- which asserts that there are no "wrong" answers. Here's the thing, though: If you are building a life-critical system such as a bridge, airplane, or medical equipment -- lawyers will beat you to death with every "wrong" answer they can find. You bet your arse there are wrong answers! Regardless of what the teachers say, the real world doesn't kid around.

Connected Math discourages teachers from teaching students how to do arithmetic. Instead, students are supposed to develop their own algorithms for time-tested operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. While it is possible that a fourth grader might come up with a ground-breaking improvement over the ones which have served us well for a thousand years, it is highly unlikely. It is even more unlikely that a heavily indoctrinated teacher would recognize it as such, much less point out the superiority of it to the chagrin of the other students. Still, should any teacher happen to question whether Connected Math is defensible, it's nothing that a little "performance review" can't fix.

True scholars would argue that most education, and certainly objective disciplines such as mathematics and science, should be devoid of any political agenda. But here it is. And here...

Though not part of Agenda 21, it is significant that The US Constitution has not been taught favorably or comprehensively in public schools for many decades. Why would that be? Well, for starters, The US Constitution, in addition to being being the official specification for the US Government, was specifically designed to limit government to the powers enumerated therein.

If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. ~ James Madison (Federalist 51)

The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground. ~ Thomas Jefferson

Why would government schools not teach about limited government? Do you see the conflict of interest?

Non-Government Organizations (NGOs): A recent trend, these federal-grant-powered "non-profit" corporations contract their "services", a.k.a., agendas to local and state governments. These tend to be environmental organizations, pushing for farm plans, water rights regulation, land use controls, LEED bulding ordinances, and just about any other illiberal control freak regulation you can think of. Such a deal: our taxes pay NGOs to instruct our government on how to oppress us. Now, mind you, I might personally want a LEED home or office building. Storm water runoff might be a problem here and there, and I'm not opposed to using permeable paving stones in lieu of poured concrete where it makes sense. But why do these people want to use the force of government to compel the rest of us to join their religion? If their religion is so great, wouldn't we join them voluntarily, if only we knew "the truth"? Everything we need is already right there in The First Amendment.

Local Government: Lacking adequate formal education about constitutional principles (see above), local governments (city councils, county councils, planning councils, etc.,) take an oath of office to uphold and defend something they know scarcely about. As such, they are all too willing to allow the federal government to override and usurp their authority, by taking government grants (which always -- always -- have strings attached), or by simply accepting state or federal controls where local control used to be. Or they allow ICLEI to come swooping in under the constitutional radar with centralized non-government control (to be imposed locally, with global uniformity -- forget diversity). Our local officials accept ICLEI's "help" to implement "sustainable", "environmentally friendly" "solutions" to "problems" that We the People have not asked to have solved.

Agenda 21? No, never heard of it. We're not doing that. What conspiracy theorist is saying that? The tea parties? Now, that makes sense!

Most of these local participants don't even know they're implementing Agenda 21. It's best that they don't know. It gives the useful idiots some plausible deniability.


  1. One thought just occurred to me: Maybe we should leave the Agenda 21 dots unconnected. It might be easier for the preservatives to divide and conquer the useful idiots that way.

  2. Thanks Karl - this screed is going to the far corners of the USof A. M

  3. Touche Karl. As always you've hit the proverbial head of the nail with a hammer.

    Keep it up. I truly enjoy your enlightening articles.
