This is from a flyer I wrote that I handed out at a town hall meeting. Actually, the guy running the meeting let me leave copies on the front table and it was very exciting to see people walk up and take seveal copies to hand out to other people.
Understanding ‘Sustainable Development’
We hear the term used all the time, but what is it and where did it come from?
‘Sustainable development’ was coined in 1987 by Gro Harlem Brundtland in her United Nations Report, Our Common Future.
Our Common Future outlines a world without sovereign nations or national identities (multiculturalism) where we will all be bound by the same ideologies, commitments and laws.
When Gro Brundtland chaired the United Nations committee, she also served as the Vice president of the Marxist organization ‘Socialist International’. Her father, a member of the Norwegian Marxist organization, Mot Dag, instilled in Gro a love of Marxist ideology. She is so well versed in Soviet Marxism that she invented ‘sustainable development’ using the 1977 USSR Constitution, Article 18 as a template. Let’s compare the UN definition to the USSR Constitution:
Brundtland defines her idea: "Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It contains within it two key concepts:
the concept of 'needs', in particular the essential needs of the world's poor, to which overriding priority should be given; and
the idea of limitations imposed by the state of technology and social organization on the environment's ability to meet present and future needs."
1977 USSR Constitution, Article 18 states: “In the interests of the present and future generations, the necessary steps are taken in the USSR to protect and make scientific, rational use of the land and its mineral and water resources, and the plant and animal kingdoms, to preserve the purity of air and water, ensure reproduction of natural wealth, and improve the human environment.”
The similarities are clear. As for Gro’s first ‘concept of ‘needs’’, it is taken from the Marxist dictum: ‘From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” It is Karl Marx’s ‘redistribution of wealth’ scheme. Gro Brundtland has proved to be an enemy of the poor when, as Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), she urged African nations to accept genetically modified (GM) food and dismissed its risks.
‘Sustainable development’, like communism, steals our private property rights from us (zones, overlays, landscape specifications), steals our farmland in exchange for environmental preserves and will ruin our economy. Our children are being indoctrinated to accept Marxist ideology through UNESCO's (United Nations) Education for Sustainable Development program.
