ANALYSIS OF AGENDA 21 DENIAL
PUBLISHED: 2nd January, 2015 | By Richard Heathen
Not long ago, had an exchange on social media regarding my research on United Nations Agenda 21 with one Immanuel Giulea. Immanuel is the self-appointed leader of the Free Province Project (FPP). The FPP is an initiative to have libertarians congregate to the island province of Prince Edward Island in Canada, (PEI) and is inspired by the Free State Project (FSP) in the US. The goal of both projects is to have libertarians congregate to one area in order to create a community of likeminded liberty activists with the goal of creating bastions of liberty for libertarians. I was briefly affiliated with this initiative, until I stepped away from it when it became clear Immanuels’ intent to closely control the direction of the FPP. I still support the spirit of the initiative although I am not sure, whether PEI should be the chosen destination. Regardless, I do believe our best chance for creating freedom is for libertarians to gather in one geographical location.
It began when I was tagged in a Facebook post and asked my opinion of an article and whether the subject fit into Agenda 21. The article was on how a member of the Federation of PEI Municipalities (FPEIM) complained about the number of municipalities in PEI and how municipal governance was too decentralized. I pointed out how the FPEIM was affiliated with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), and how the FCM is affiliated with global NGO networks like ICLEI and UCLG which openly forward an agenda of globalization and strengthening of the United Nations in creating global policy, as I covered in my article Agenda 21 for Cultural Marxism. Immanuel then chimed in saying that the FCM was a "respectable and credible organization", which is a strange position for someone who identifies with Anarcho-Capitalism to have. Even if you give the organization the benefit of the doubt and the most charitable assumptions the FCM is still an organization full of municipal politicians. With very few exceptions, politicians are not people I would consider to be either respectable or credible, I must not be a real anarchist then.
Immanuels' idea of debunking me was stating that he didn't buy my "Agenda 21 conspiracy theory" (because apparently I am the first person to ever discuss the UN's Agenda 21) and dismissed any concerns about Agenda 21 as nonsense. I will admit I was annoyed and became more hostile then I needed to be during the first part of our exchange. This was because up until then I had looked at Immanuel as, if not a friend, an ally and fellow traveler. His rudeness and unwillingness to debate facts annoyed and surprised me. One of the few attempts at an argument by Immanuel involved the role of municipal governments in the parliamentary system. While he didn't actually say anything about the parliamentary system, he just said I should do some research into it and "stop spreading disinformation". When I challenged him on how I was spreading disinformation or where I was factually wrong, I got no response. I have not read hundreds of hours worth of documents on how the Canadian parliamentary system is supposed to work like Immanuel claims he has, but I have spent more time then I'd like to admit reading documents from the UN, and they openly admit that local initiatives have been the most successful at implementing Agenda 21. While it might be interesting to consider the role of Canadian Parliamentary system but what seems to escape those who admire what they perceive as the beauty of bureaucracy is that government doesn't follow its own rules. Whether it's Mike Duffy making fraudulent claims on his government expense account, the daily violations of the US constitution down south, or Alison Redford using government planes for private trips illegally, government "officials" rarely follow their own rules, why would it be any different with procedure?
My tone changed after I realized that, despite his insufferable arrogance, Immanuel might be able to provide me with some useful information. After we both cooled down a third party put us into a group chat and he casually admitted that the FCM is trying to get more autonomy from the national and provincial level of government while "taking a greater role at the international" level. Basically he agreed to everything I was, and continue to say only he's framing it as some kind of victory for liberty, instead of usurpation by the United Nations. When I mentioned the UCLG's website talking about strengthening the role of the UN in creating global policy his silence was deafening. Based on his above average knowledge of the FCM and how strongly he supported it I am going to guess that Immanuel is in some way affiliated with the FCM or is connected to someone who is. Does that mean he is in on some big conspiracy? Nah, I wouldn't give him that much credit. I am sure he is sincere and doesn't even see any connection between the FCM fighting for autonomy (from provincial and federal governments) for municipal governments on one hand while being part of a global NGO network that wants to strengthen the role of the United Nations in creating what is calls "global policy". This is a honey trap for those who would work to decentralize government. You don't decentralize the state by being a node in a global NGO network that is working to strengthen and give more power to an organization that has been clamouring to be the government of the world since its inception almost 70 years ago. This point is hopelessly lost on those like Immanuel, where any concerns about the UN are dismissed as 'conspiracy theory'. In any other situation people like Immanuel would happily admit that governments and bureaucracies will always grow and work to increase their power, why not this time? Social pressure would be my guess. At any rate as someone who has read numerous reports and documents, not only from the UN but other international bodies and think tanks, I can tell you, they call the work they do "global governance". Governing is the business of governments, and I really want no part of it, especially if it involves the social justice mongers and the busy bodies at the UN.
