Important presentation on American philosophical and political foundations for private property rights (fairly short video).

A quick video offering a synopsis of the Agenda 21 issue.
There is no doubt that Agenda 21 is the single, most important threat to rural life. As it happens, it is also the single, most important threat to urban and city life as well. Though this next series of videos deals a lot with California, I have found it most valuable for understanding what is happening to Idaho and other rural areas, as California is the globalists’ pilot program. You need some time to watch this six-part series of videos.
This is a 2014 conference of the leaders of the opposition to Agenda 21 and Technocracy, including Patrick Wood: Co-author of Trilaterals over Washington, Economist and Financial Analyst to speak on the emergence of Technocracy, the political-economic design of a planned coming scientific dictatorship. Debbie Bacigalupi: General election Congressional candidate (2012) and expert on Agenda 21, will provide background information on the ongoing transformation of our government.
Heather Gass: Leader of the East Bay Tea Party and Agenda 21 expert, will show how ABAG’s One Bay Area is designed to herd Bay Area residents into stack and pack housing, get them out of their cars and more.
Rosa Koire: Author and former state appraiser, will speak on Agenda 21 implementation around the world and the pending lawsuit to halt the One Bay Area plan.
Michael Shaw: Self-employed businessman, a founder of FreedomAdvocates.org, and long standing opponent of Agenda 21 and Regionalism, will discuss the political underpinnings of Regionalism and discuss what individuals can do to restore local government and preserve the American experiment.
Also, elected officials from around the state discuss how local government has been submerged by the federalized Regional COG system of governance designed to overtake the whole of the Country. These individuals are:
Matt Grocott – City Council – San Carlos, CA (SF Peninsula)
Mike Munzing – City Council – Aliso Viejo, CA (Orange County)
Steve Brandau – City Council – Fresno, CA (Central Valley)
This is a web site that is affiliated with Rosa Koire and Democrats Against Agenda 21
This is a collection of essays written by Michael Barker. Barker appears to be a man of the Left, and seems to blame capitalism for the problems associated with the current co-option of the environmental movement. I am a conservative, and I see the problem in somewhat different terms. Nonetheless, Barker’s research and writing are immaculate and perceptive. The many meticulous citations and bibliographical references are invaluable in tracing the connections between crony capitalists and their efforts to control the natural world for their own profit.
Some exploration on the web site, Swans, will turn up other writers on the subject who have important insights into the problem.
Idahoans Against Agenda 21: Fighting to protect the freedom and the future of the Gem State
Karen is the webmistress of Idahoans Against Agenda 21. She does extensive research which gives her a bird’s-eye view of the many aspects of Agenda 21. Her site is informative and especially vital for Idahoans. Idahoans Against Agenda 21 makes the following invitation:
Thank you, Karen, for this important resource.
Kirk Mackenzie gives valuable information about the many ways in which rural Americans are under attack. This site also offers important resources for educating yourself and others about the scientific and legal aspects of the struggle.
Fred Kelly Grant has been in this fight for a long time. He is an attorney from Idaho, and he pioneered the legal technique called Coordination, a technique that has been used in Idaho and elsewhere to defend rural communities. Above is a link to his blog.
This is is a video in which Grant explains the Coordination process, and how he first implemented this process in Owyhee County, Idaho. At the time Grant made this video, Owyhee county had held off the destruction of the ranching way of life for 15 years.
Elizabeth Nickson has written for world-class publications, including Time, Vogue, Life, and Harpers. She loves and respects the natural world, and is, in no way, trying to say we don’t have responsibilities to care for nature. Yet she is dedicated to showing that Agenda 21 and the political/social system that is being imposed on us has nothing really to do with that responsibility. This is a link to her web site. She has written thoughtful essays and has good insights.
This site offers information and training about Coordination and other land-use issues. Here is a quote from their site: “Today, nearly half the land in our nation is owned by government, international corporations and land trusts. The rest is highly regulated. We are rapidly losing the ability to own private property, and as a result feed our families from the fruit of our land, as well as protect our individual liberties. We are working to change this!“by
