Ed Note: This is a speech I first gave to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 1996, just four years after the UN’s Earth Summit in Rio. At the time I gave this address there were strong indications that Maurice Strong could be chosen as the next UN Secretary General. It didn’t happen, but that didn’t diminish his influence over the body. In fact, In 1996 all roads in the UN led to Maurice Strong. This speech represented the first time that the CPAC audience and most conservatives had ever heard of the radical agenda of the environmental movement. It was probably the first time the term Sustainable Development was ever heard by a conservative audience. In fact, at the time I gave this speech, environmentalism was the most popular and most powerful movement in the world. Yet, here, 15 years before “Climategate” I was revealing the very root of what was to become the “Climate Change” movement and its drive to destroy the industrial West. By the way, tapes of this speech became the most popular of any ever produced by the American Policy Center and continues to be one of our best sellers. TD
How many people know of Maurice Strong — and that he is evil? Maurice Strong has the potential to be the most powerful and most evil dictator the world has ever known — right now — today — in our day and age — and yet, most people have never heard of him.
Let me begin by asking you a few questions. They may seem rather silly – but I have a point. So, please, just indulge me for a moment — just answer with a show of hands:

How many of you know of Maurice Strong — and that he is evil?
There is the point of my questions. Maurice Strong has the potential to be the most powerful and most evil dictator the world has ever known — right now — today — in our day and age — and yet, most of you have never heard of him.
So let me sound the warning bell — loud and long. Maurice Strong will, in all likelihood be the next Secretary General of the United Nations.
Now, you may be wondering why I’m talking about the subject of the United Nations when this panel is about the assault on property rights. What does Maurice Strong have to do with American property Rights? Everything.
