UN Plotting to “Dramatically Alter” Your Views and Behavior

The UN document, while packed with contradictory machinations, essentially outlines what establishment proponents of global government have long described as a “New World Order.” In essence, the UN panel called for a top-down restructuring of human civilization under the guise of tackling poverty, “unsustainable” activities, and “climate change.” The international outfit and its mostly dictatorial member regimes will set the agenda, with regional, national, and sub-national governments expected to foist it on humanity.
Literally every person on Earth must submit and contribute, the planetary establishment claimed on multiple occasions in the radical document. It was not immediately clear what would happen with those who refuse.
The report on the “Post-2015 Development Agenda,” dubbed “A New Global Partnership: Eradicate Poverty and Transform Economies Through Sustainable Development,” was compiled and endorsed by a “High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons.” Under the plan, expected to be discussed later this year at a UN meeting in New York, a planetary treaty on “sustainable development” would drastically transform everything from government and the economy to society and even individuals’ beliefs.
“Perhaps the most important transformative shift is towards a new spirit of solidarity, cooperation, and mutual accountability that must underpin the post-2015 agenda,” the report says. “This partnership should involve governments but also include others: people living in poverty, those with disabilities, women, civil society and indigenous and local communities, traditionally marginalised groups, multilateral institutions, local and national government, the business community, academia and private philanthropy.” In other words, everyone and everything.
Even your own mind and beliefs are in UN crosshairs. “The new global partnership should encourage everyone to alter their worldview, profoundly and dramatically,” the report explains. Fox News editor George Russell, who first reported on the extreme effort, described it as “a colossal and sweeping form of global behavior modification.” In fact, the UN plan, which has been in the pipeline for decades, goes well beyond even what Russell described.
“A renewed global partnership will require a new spirit from national leaders, but also — no less important — it will require many others to adopt new mind-sets and change their behavior,” the report continues, adding that the shift must get all countries to move “willingly” toward the UN’s radical and “universal” agenda. “These changes will not happen overnight. But we must move beyond business-as-usual — and we must start today.”
Among the primary justifications for the radical schemes are fighting “poverty” and so-called “climate change,” which the UN continues to blame on humanity despite the total implosion of its theories and models. On poverty, meanwhile, the UN has openly announced its intentions to reduce standards of living worldwide — along with population levels — and implement totalitarian controls over the economy. Every credible economist knows such anti-market measures will drastically slash material prosperity.
A key section of the report goes under the headline “One World: One Sustainable Development Agenda.” Of course, the terms “sustainable development” and Agenda 21 will be very familiar to readers of The New American. Under the guise of so-called “sustainability” — a perpetually shifting scheme that at its core considers human beings, national sovereignty, liberty, and prosperity to be problems in need of solutions — the UN has long been seeking to expand and centralize coercive power at the global level.
As The New American reported from the 2012 UN Rio+20 “Conference on Sustainable Development” in Rio de Janeiro, chaired by a prominent Chinese communist, the real agenda behind “sustainability” is actually fairly transparent. The UN boasts about its plans at its summits and in official documents, and the Rio+20 summit is cited in the latest report as having established the “foundations” for steering the world toward the globalists’ agenda. In essence, the goal is to have an unaccountable planetary authority dictate everything from economic decisions and environmental regulation down to the thoughts of individuals.
Much like Soviet “five-year plans,” the UN document outlines a series of demands to be solidified by 2015, when its previous slate of radical “development goals” runs its course, and implemented by 2020. “In our view, business-as-usual is not an option,” the “eminent persons” decided for you, all Americans, and everybody else around the world. “We concluded that the post-2015 agenda is a universal agenda. It needs to be driven by … big, transformative shifts.”
Wealth redistribution under the guise of fighting “poverty” and “inequality” will be crucial, with Western taxpayers being fleeced to prop up Third World dictatorships and global bureaucracies. “We agreed to push developed countries to fulfill their side of the bargain — by honouring their aid commitments, but also reforming their trade, tax and transparency policies, by paying more attention to better regulating global financial and commodity markets and by leading the way towards sustainable development,” the report states.
The supposed “stresses” of “unsustainable production and consumption patterns,” the globalist document continues, have supposedly become “clear.” To respond to the alleged “stresses,” the UN panel agreed that the UN would have to start calling the shots and attacking freedom and free markets. “We also agreed on the need to manage the world’s consumption and production patterns in more sustainable and equitable ways [emphasis added],” the report says. “Above all, we agreed that a new vision must be universal: offering hope — but also responsibilities — to everyone in the world.”
Did you catch that? It is hardly the only time it is mentioned. “There can be no excuses,” the document adds. “This is a universal agenda, for which everyone must accept their proper share of responsibility.” In case you missed it again, the UN has a plan for your life, whether you agree with it or not. It will not be optional, as the report makes abundantly clear, adding that many of “the world’s largest companies are already leading this transformation to a green economy.” What happens with those who refuse to accept their “proper share of responsibility” remains unclear.
The latest UN report expands on the radical themes unveiled at the Rio+20 summit and plots a way forward for the draconian global transformation. Promising a “profound economic transformation,” for example, the high-level globalist report vows to restructure the world economy, which includes commandeering business to serve the agenda. “This means a rapid shift to sustainable patterns of consumption and production,” the report states. Top UN officials and reports, of course, have already made abundantly clear that American standards of living are not “sustainable” in their view.
Chaired by three foreign leaders, there was just one American on the global outfit’s “high-level panel” — John Podesta. The establishment “progressive” heavyweight, who founded the radical Big Business-funded “Center for American Progress” and served as chief of staff to disgraced former President Bill Clinton, is now considered one of the top players in the Obama administration and its lawless scheme to rule America by decree while subverting U.S. sovereignty.
“The ability of President Obama to accomplish important change through [executive] powers should not be underestimated,” Podesta opined in a 2010 Center for American Progress report calling on the administration to shred what remains of the Constitution and congressional authority. Indeed, Podesta and his cohorts have been among the key drivers behind the increasingly totalitarian executive-branch plot to bypass Congress using Obama’s “pen and phone.”
In recent years, for example, the administration has unilaterally and unconstitutionally foisted radical policies on Americans dealing with everything from “climate change” to gun control. Just last week, The New American reported on how far Obama is willing to go, including the imposition of radical UN “global warming” decrees on America without any sort of congressional approval or Senate ratification. Secretary of State John Kerry even announced a “climate” partnership with the murderous communist regime ruling mainland China, which the UN climate boss praises as a better model than the U.S. Constitution to fight "climate change."
The globalists have fanatical allies in the Obama administration including the president himself, of course, as well as Podesta and countless others. However, the American people have already expressed fierce resistance to the UN’s agenda. In Alabama, for example, the state government passed a law banning the UN Agenda 21 and its “sustainability” plots. Numerous other state legislatures and local bodies have passed similar measures.
As the UN takes off the deceitful mask and tightens the screws, opposition will undoubtedly continue to surge. One surefire way to break the back of the schemers is to elect members of Congress who will support legislation getting the U.S. government to de-fund and withdraw from the dictators’ club known as the United Nations. Whether American resistance to the globalist plot will be enough to stop it, however, depends largely on educating and activating the public.
