Okay for all you Reddit geniuses out there that swear up and down that Agenda 21 is a conspiracy on par with the Amero and the Sasquatch, well don’t choke on your Cheetos or anything, but you are wrong.
Not just kind of wrong, oh-that’s-cute-no-biggie, but really really wrong. So, for May’s Memory Lanes PD is going to go into just a small smattering of some quotes from those that have had a hand in designing it.
Let’s start first with Maurice Strong of Oil-For-Food fame. No, those pics weren’t taken in Movember, that wispy soup strainer has been part of his signature style since the 1960’s.
Anyways, as the opening speaker at the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janerio, where Agenda 21 was unveiled in 1992 (the one with 18,000 protesting outside), Maurice Strong brought the crowd to their feet by saying, “It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, ownership of motor vehicles and small electrical appliances, home and workplace air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.”
Yeah, those middle class bastards with their air conditioning and microwaves.
Well, clearly we got it wrong here at PD. Maurice Strong absolutely must be the biggest libertarian there ever was. Doesn’t that little opener sound just like freedom, freedom, freedom?
