Sustainable Development and the United Nations

By Brannon S. Howse

This “kingdom building” comes at us on many fronts, and environmentalism is a favorite. Mikhail Gorbachev and Maurice Strong were all involved in the United Nations’ Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, where they unveiled Agenda 21, a nearly 400-page document on how to use “sustainable development” as the framework for global governance. Sustainable development is a code term for restraining developed countries through multi-national power. (To get a more complete understanding of sustainable development, please read Grave Influence.) Agenda 21 is the global plan for how to implement a one-world economy, a one-world government, a one-world religious system, and radical environmentalism. 


Sustainable development promotes abortion on demand, population control, socialized medicine, social justice, welfare programs, public housing, and elimination of national sovereignty, parental authority, and religious liberty. One of its tenets is the criminalization of Christianity. A variety of UN-aligned organizations uses sustainable development as the framework for bringing about global governance. 


The approach is now being implemented in over 2,000 communities in America without any government mandate. The perpetrators are getting federal money for it, but there’s no federal mandate to do it.This is all part of a spooky confluence of belief systems. In 1990, Steven Rockefeller co-authored Spirit and Nature: Visions of Interdependence, which encourages people to discover “the face of the sacred in rocks, trees, animals… and the Earth as a whole.”


In his article “The Rockefeller Plan,” author Dennis Cuddy reveals that “he [Steven Rockefeller] started writing the Earth Charter for Maurice Strong and Mikhail Gorbachev, both of whom said the charter would be like a new Ten Commandments.”


After the Rio Earth Summit, Rockefeller, Strong, and Gorbachev unveiled the Earth Charter, which calls for the equitable distribution of wealth within nations and among nations, social justice, communitarianism or Fabian socialism, depending on what you prefer to call it. It has been housed in the Ark of Hope, an “ark” intended to resemble the Ark of the Covenant that held the Ten Commandments. According to the website:


Recognizing that the United Nations is central to global efforts to solve problems which challenge humanity, the Ark of Hope carrying the Earth Charter and the Temenos Books was exhibited at the United Nations during the World Summit Prep Com II in January-February 2002.


The Ark of Hope was also placed on display at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa.
