To its very great credit, the Republican National Committee has passed a resolution condemning the United Nations Agenda 21 tenets as anti national sovereignty, socialistic and communistic. The resolution calls the whole UN approach to contrary to private property rights and an attempt to achieve “Social Justice” by eroding private property rights and National Interests. at the expense of the the broader world. The central underlying premise to the Agenda 21 is seen in section 3.1 of the Agenda 21 Charter:
3.1. Poverty is a complex multidimensional problem with origins in both the national and international domains. No uniform solution can be found for global application. Rather, country-specific programmes to tackle poverty and international efforts supporting national efforts, as well as the parallel process of creating a supportive international environment, are crucial for a solution to this problem. The eradication of poverty and hunger, greater equity in income distribution and human resource development remain major challenges everywhere. The struggle against poverty is the shared responsibility of all countries.
It is straight up income redistribution that is its central goal. The main mechanism and motivation is the use of “Climate Change” and the fear of changing climate conditions to scare people into adopting these principles as governance guidelines in local communities across the world.
The Rio Accords from which the Agenda 21 principles emerged was signed by President H.W. Bush in 1992. It was never ratified by the US Senate. The principle mechanism by which the UN has inserted itself into issues of economic development and protection of the environment has been through ICLEI. Over 325 Cities, towns and Counties have adopted ICLEI principles which seek to destroy private property rights. You may see the list of US members here.
The Resolution presses for the inclusion of a plank in the Republican National Platform condemning the corrosive effects of the principles outlined in ICLEI and a halt to all government funding for future implementation and initiatives that promote these principles. The full text of the resolution is below:
