Events since the 2008 economic crisis have triggered a lingering list of long lasting financial disruptions for many individuals. This list includes debt and shut down experiences of small businesses, farms, home owners and property owners.
In 2013, oblivious to its rural constituents’ continuing hardships, Thurston County celebrated the economic collapse-aftermath with a plan to collect more penalties and fees from rural residents. Also incentivized by Washington’s Growth Management Act, in late 2013, the Thurston County Planning Department proudly unveiled Title 26 as if it was a new design for a Maserati. Confident in their hard work and craftsmanship, the planners proposed a diabolical land use code-enforcement plan for unincorporated Thurston County residents.
While most officials deny the connection, the above events dovetail right alongside short descriptions of UN Agenda 21. Taken to its next notch of implementation, Agenda 21 is ultimately designed to destroy representative government, and remove economic opportunities and infrastructure from the countryside dweller and property owner under the pretext of environmental preservation and sustainability.
Here is a summary by Rosa Koire:
Rosa Koire started to study the hidden forces behind Smart Growth planning in the early 2000’s. In her published research, she reveals the subtle roll out of plans to implement regionalism, a multi-national, corporate-driven template for “inventory and control”. Here are some of the take aways from the plan entitled “U.N. Agenda for the 21st Century”, bearing a frightening resemblance to real world current events.
(Note your county and local governments will refer to Agenda 21 policies under different names, like Sustainable Thurston and the Growth Management Act). Agenda 21 will:
Restrict growth and development to small zoning districts in high density areas.
Justify and popularize communitarianism.
Coerce individuals to participate in neighborhood interest groups / volunteering efforts in exchange for acceptance and security under an authoritarian social contract.
Motivate citizens to favor surveillance (spying on neighbors / reporting on neighbors) to support authoritarianism.
Motivate and inform citizens to favor removal of economic opportunities and infrastructure from the countryside for the sake of environmental purity, species protection, and wild life aesthetics. See http://www.trpc.org/218/Growth-Management
Motivate poorer inhabitants to relocate out of their lands into crowded cities through economic deprivation and hardship.
State law enforcement in coordination with Federal and corporate actors will be prone to exerting force when staking out / allocating natural resources in rural areas for profit and control.
Underpay skilled workers / overpay unskilled workers = socialism.
The mantra of the times will be: “You’re either with us or against us”.

There is plenty of information on Agenda 21 on the internet, with some of it tinged with dramatic doom and gloom conspiracy theories, and therefore making “Agenda 21” seem like a tin-foil-hat, whack-job topic. Yet, research and information published by Rosa and her Post Sustainability Institute is solid and irrefutable.
Why the Mainstream Media Lies About Agenda 21 (http://www.postsustainabilityinstitute.org/why-the-press-lies.html)
Excerpted from ThePostSustainabilityInstitute.Org:
“More and more non-profit organizations are being created, fragmenting from others, spinning off and creating more non-profits. Funding comes from state and federal grants, from your taxes and fees, private grants, donations (tax write-offs), and from lawsuits. You’ll find the League of Women Voters advocating for Smart Growth. The Lung Association lobbies for Smart Growth. The National Association of Realtors advocates for Smart Growth. The Chamber of Commerce does too. So does the AFL-CIO. Are your dues or professional fees paying for UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. Are you volunteering for a group supporting UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development?”
More excerpted material from the Post Sustainability Institute’s Website (http://www.postsustainabilityinstitute.org/who-funds-un-agenda-21.html):
WHO FUNDS UN AGENDA 21 / SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT?
TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SECTION FOR A PARTIAL LIST
“Growing Smart Legislative Guidebook Model Statutes for Planning and the Management of Change was funded by a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (the lead federal agency); Federal Highway Administration (US Department of Transportation); US Environmental Protection Agency; the Federal Transit Administration (DOT); the Rural Economic and Community Development Administration (US Department of Agriculture). All of these agencies were members of the President’s Council on Sustainable Development which ran from 1993-1999.”
“Private funders included the Siemens Corporation; Henry M. Jackson Foundation; Annie E. Casey Foundation; and the American Planning Association. These private organizations promote smart growth.
Siemens, for instance, benefits from the development of the ‘smart grid’ and is a key private for-profit corporation for solar, biomass, and other subsidized power generation. This huge multi-national corporation is involved in health care, building systems, financing, communications and more. Siemens is a German company that was nearly bankrupt until Hitler supplied free slave labor and money for technological development.”
“Siemens USA has revenue of over $20 Billion. They also just appointed Michael Kruklinski Head of Siemens Real Estate for the Americas. In this role he’ll oversee all operations for Siemens Real Estate in the U.S. He also is on the NEW YORK CITY REGIONAL PLAN ASSOCIATION BOARD.” http://www.usa.siemens.com/answers/en/
“The Henry M. Jackson Foundation is a major grant funder. Their involvement on an international scale is detailed here:
The Foundation seeks to leverage its influence and effectiveness by convening and participating actively in groups of like-minded funders to discuss topics of mutual interest. Examples of funder partners or networks follow:
International Human Rights Funders Group
The Jackson Foundation is a founding member and former steering committee member of the International Human Rights Funders Group (IHRFG), an association of grantmakers dedicated to supporting efforts to protect human rights on both national and international scales. Members meet at least twice yearly to discuss issues of common concern in human rights philanthropy and reach out to potential funders to attract greater dollars to the human rights field. IHRFG also seeks to inform public policy on a national level. (text in italics is directly from the Jackson Foundation website)”
“The Funders’ Network for Smart Growth
The Jackson Foundation is a founding member of the Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities, a coalition that seeks to strengthen and expand philanthropic leadership and grantmaking that improves communities through better development decisions and growth policies. It brings together foundations, nonprofit organizations and other partners to address a range of environmental, social, and economic problems. (Text in italics is from The Funders’ Network for Smart Growth website)”
“The Funders Network membership list is vast. Annie E. Casey Foundation is just one of many members. Read the membership list here: http://www.fundersnetwork.org/connect .”
Something to be Aware of Regarding Green and Sustainability Movements
We suggest that you look carefully at the members of the Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities to see where the UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development money trail leads. Money and power flow back and forth along these channels. Enterprise Community Development and LISC, for example, are on the list. They are for-profit affordable housing developers who benefit hugely from subsidies in smart growth and redevelopment (urban renewal) zones. Wal-Mart is a partner. The Orton Family Foundation is a partner. You’ll find over 100 foundations and corporations on the list: http://www.postsustainabilityinstitute.org/who-funds-un-agenda-21.html and look at this too, as an example of who funds the Smart Growth conferences.
On the issue of devaluation of property through regulatory means, we find it reprehensible that counties and cities recognize that development rights have value when they’re being purchased in conservation easements, but they have no value when they’re being taken away through regulations. You won’t find many General or Comprehensive Plans that don’t embed sustainable communities strategies in their elements. Most states require it by law through their legislation. These policies fund and support UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development.
