Our battle to expose and stop Agenda 21 has grown more intense over the past few months. More counties and states across the nation are taking action against the dictates of self-proclaimed stakeholder groups to reject sustainablist policies. From Virginia to California, citizens are demanding protection of their property rights and more state legislatures are addressing their demands.
However, new attacks have been made against us over the past two months from the American Planning Association, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Treehugger.com. Three major national news publications — Newsweek, Esquire, and Fortune — have also attacked our efforts to expose local sustainable development policies and local activist’s efforts to stop it.
These attacks indicate that we are making an impact in this fight to stop government sprawl. More state legislatures are passing anti-Agenda 21 legislation and more local communities are standing up to outside non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and rejecting their plans for control of private property and community development. More than 150 American cities have ended membership in the International Council for Local Environmental Initiative (ICLEI), and several communities have now rejected membership in regional councils. All of this has apparently caused a panic in planning circles as they try to find a way to counter our efforts. So far, their answer is to name us fringe nuts and conspiracy theorists in major news publications.
