How America
is Being









By Michael Shaw

The issue is Liberty

Congressman Ron Paul, a constitutionalist said “This is not a conservative problem nor is it a liberal problem. It’s a government intrusion problem that comes from both groups albeit for different reasons. The problems emanate from both camps that champion different programs for different reasons. The solution will come,” he says, “when both groups realize that it is not merely a single party problem or just a liberal or a conservative problem.” The problem is the abandonment of the principles of limited government. The issue is liberty.

I created a pictorial that illustrates the dialectic tactic used to subvert the vision of the American experience. An artificial dialectic is a form of psychological manipulation that involves the creation of a ‘thesis’ and a corresponding “anti thesis” each with different apparent purposes. The thesis and the anti thesis are chosen and pursued to combine and achieve a predetermined “synthesis” - the real objective of the sponsors. In evaluating how a global green cartel came to America, I applied this long-known concept to the contemporary political situation.

The ‘thesis’ comes from ‘right wing’ state collectivists. That is those who seek to combine the force of government with the power of business. This is accomplished through public/private partnerships.

The first Sustainable Development business council was formed in 1972. It was named the Business Council for Sustainable Development. It was formed by Prince Charles and included a who’s who list of multinational corporations. Watch for the existence or emergence of local business councils modeled on the concept of Prince Charles’ Business Council for Sustainable Development.

Many local Chambers of Commerce and Farm Bureaus appear to promote free enterprise. However, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Farm Bureau are NGO’s. They accredited by the UN to further policies that implement Sustainable Development. Take action to reorganize to protect your interests if it is not clear to you that that your associations are protecting liberty.

Sustainable Development’s populist ‘anti thesis’ was designed and delegated to left wing state collectivists. These collectivists rally rank and file liberals around the concepts of social justice and environmental protection. The “battle” between the left wing and the right wing moves society downward. The moves are left - right, step by step toward the new world order of Sustainable Development.

Sustainable Development is the synthesis of the contemporary political left/right dialectic. At the local level this synthesis is achieved though the process of “stakeholder” or “visioning” councils. These are the new American soviet.

Once the Sustainable synthesis or “consensus” occurs a police state will arise. America will experience what Al Gore proclaims will be “the wrenching transformation of America”. Such is the path to Tyranny.

While right wing insiders benefit economically from Smart Growth policies the politically powerful left wing collectivists promote the anti-life, anti-liberty, and anti-property program titled The Wildlands Project. This combination of the two is the United Nations Agenda 21 land use program.
The federal executive branch’s implementation of this political globalist agenda by has been continuous since at least 1989.

Agenda 21 seeks to regionalize America to the benefit of a shrinking number of political-economic insiders. Regionalism is the political system for state collectivist policies.

The Agenda 21 collectivism is designed to implement the United Nations Charter. This is the goal of Sustainable Development policy. The Charter of the United Nations’ premise is the idea that ordinary human beings are “resources”. The elite will arrange these resources into sustainable numbers of worker bees and bee keepers.

The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, Article 29 Section 3 declares that: “Rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.” Under the UN Charter your rights ultimately depend on your usefulness and compliance to the will of the elite. Ordinary human beings, including Americans, are to be transformed into chattel. When fully understood, Sustainable Development is seen as a spiritual battle.

Sustainable Development will transform America away from being a land of the free; where your life, your liberty and your property are yours; and where government is limited and subject to a higher authority. The Sustainable Development of the new world order is a political system designed by select and powerful men who operate behind the scenes. Their tools are mechanisms that monitor and control all human action; where they grant or revoke rights; and regard ordinary human beings as biological resources.

What is particularly interesting about right wing collectivists and left wing collectivists is what they have in common. Both right wing and left wing collectivists support government-mandated education. Note the bipartisan Bush/Kennedy support for “No Child Left Behind.” This federal mandate was designed to assure that the next generation is molded into compliant global citizens.
The most chilling aspect of Agenda 21 is this educational indoctrination element that has reached into nearly all our schools. Go to: This Minnesota-based organization has thoroughly assessed and exposed the deliberate plan to mold our children’s attitudes, values and beliefs. This plan had no provision for an awareness of the meaning of liberty. Take control of your child’s development.

The “left side” uses fraud and junk science as a means to achieve their ends. Both “sides” of the dialectic support an interventionist foreign military policy and support wars without constitutional authorization. The “right side” pushes America towards a police state.

Each subset of contemporary political globalists want to design the details to benefit their buddies: but the fight is phony. The real fight is between liberty and tyranny, not over which tyrant is in control.

In 1959, Nikita Khrushchev said; “We will bury you!” The methodology is the application of the dialectic; the goal is Sustainable Development.

The Sustainable Development emblem is three connecting rings. Each ring represents one of the three “E’s’. You see it often marking Sustainable Development documents. In other places you will find it as code branding for operatives who work local soviet councils. Keep your antenna up.

The idea behind the Sustainable Development concept of Equity grows out of the same principles of “social” justice that operated in the Soviet Union for so long. The Economics of this “new order” of “public/private partnerships” is based on the same economic premise adopted by Mussolini and Hitler. Overlying the Equity and the Economic elements of Sustainable Development is the moneyed fraud behind the mainstream Environmental movement. The environmental movement is a clever distraction used to beguile the public and rationalize the transformation of the American political culture.

Sustainable Development is the establishment of new systems of government, justice and economics. Sustainable Development is the submission of America into the emerging global state collectivism. Sustainable Development is the worst of conspiracy theory nightmares. Today it is well past the conspiracy stage. It is “Community Teamwork in Operation Now”. Sustainable Development is the formal policy of federal, state and local officials and agencies. Sustainable Development is the greatest criminal conspiracy and the grandest criminal fraud of all time. It is time for Americans to wake up and withdraw their support from the facade that shrouds this paper tiger.

It is also time to begin reasserting this truth: each person’s life is their own. A moral government does not determine the “sustainable” terms of human action or of life itself. If society continues down this road the result will be tyranny, poverty, a degraded earth, and unnecessary human death.

A group of citizens in Santa Cruz have coalesced. The numbers of people are growing and the commitment is rising as people slowly accept the reality of the circumstance. We call the organization Freedom Advocates. We distribute The Report electronically to provide information at We track how the soviet is being implemented in Santa Cruz, and name those who are responsible. We do research and analysis regarding national and international connections to the local implementation of Sustainable Development. We provide links to freedom sources. What we are trying to do is provide an example for people in other communities. The future of human liberty is at stake.

The most important action you can take is to spread the word to your friends and to others. At Freedom Advocates, our goal is to spread ideals of Liberty: personal and family autonomy, private property and the moral and legitimate administration of government.

Sustainable Development is the clever modern political scheme to establish a human collective ruled by a global government.

Sustainable Developers use the mainstream environmental movement as poison candy to steal American’s private property and with it our freedom.
Private property and the ingenuity that derives from the policies that protect individual liberty secure the best prospect for happiness and a healthier planet for us.
Recognize that Sustainable Developers are establishing an American soviet right under our noses.
Realize that the premise of the founding ideas of the United States and the United Nations are diametrically opposed.

The true political spectrum is not left and right, it is up or down. A political system either protects unalienable rights or it does not. The question we face is simple: Do we take the path toward liberty or the highway to tyranny. In this 21st century, America’s destiny requires that each of us choose between Liberty and Sustainable Development. Remember: evil prevails when good men do nothing.

The questions we must each ask ourselves are:

Do I want a life of my own or am I willing to be a biological resource that implements the state’s “common good” directives?
Do I have a moral right to trade away another person’s unalienable right to equal justice; the reasonable use their property, their expression of liberty and the pursuit of a life that is their own?
What is the eternal price I will pay if I do nothing to prevent a world that condemns posterity to the tyranny of global state collectivism?

The foundational principles of the United States of America are facing a great threat. Posterity will live with the consequences of the Sustainable Development battle and the anti-human ideas it represents. Sustainable Development activists and supporters may not be aware that tyranny is the consequence of the environmental, social equity and economic blueprint.

As dire as these circumstances are they also afford the greatest opportunity in history to advance individual liberty.

As the Sustainable Development initiative gains strength, as it is in the short term, it is wise to recall what George Washington said, “Private property and freedom are inseparable.” A healthy planet and freedom are also inseparable.

If Americans come to an understanding of the threat and face the challenges squarely, the deceptive fraud of Sustainable Development will be exposed to the light. America will rise to restore liberty through an orderly transition directed by reason and respect for the dignity of individual determination. We; you and me, are charged with protecting the ideals of liberty and its corollary; private property.

As the implications of Sustainable Development become clear, parents and grandparents will come to understand the tyrannical consequences of Sustainable Development. The circle of active voices sounding Freedom 21’s warning is growing. Join in now because the green coats are here. There is no time to waste.

Protect your property, protect your children and protect the American experience. Draw on the heritage of American industriousness, maintain the hope that springs eternal from western civilization’s culture, believe in the potential of the inspired human spirit to expose Sustainable Development and advance genuine freedom in the 21st Century.

Thank you.

Long live freedom.
