  • Glen Beck's "Agenda 21"

    Anyone reading it yet?

    This is not a book describing the Agenda 21 proposal. It is a fictional story of what life would be like for the survivors of a family of independent thinkers trapped in the society of Agenda 21 decades after it became the law of the land.
    “Breaking News,”

    “Something irrelevant in your life just happened and now we are going to blow it all out of proportion for days to keep you distracted from what's really going on.”

        Typical Progressive behavior from those that haven't and won't bother to read it. Harriot Parke is the author of the fictional portion of the story.

        Or,

        You can sneak into the People's Democratic Republic of Korea and see it for real.

                What is scary is that other half that decided that they would rather trade their freedom for the security of dependency on the Government. They will have neither when the Government goes bankrupt. Then, we may all find out what life under Agenda 21 is really like.

                  You know that 94% of people who get food stamps stay on them less than a year? And that 74% of those are elderly and children?

                  As for entitlements, I get all my money from the government and don't do a damn thing. All I had to do was give up some body parts.

                  Your boy Becka is a scare monger, barely literate but quite good at pushing your buttons. Live in fear if you like, you seem happy there.

                    Ok Opana we get it,you don't like Beck. You are entitled to your opinion but let's leave the thread to those that wish to discuss the merits or (lack thereof) of the book.

Glen's book portrays what life could be like decades after Agenda 21 is forced upon the American society for the sake of the environment and what happens when some of its subjects start to question why they are living the way they have been ordered to by the Central Authority of the Republic.

                          I do find a couple of things odd about the story;

                          1. The availability of eggs would not exist in a society where farm animals would not be allowed.
                          2. The rationing of drinking water.
                          3. The use of a notepad and pencil where such items have been eliminated from the public to protect the trees and a solar powered electronic tablet could be used for the same purpose.

                          4. There are no gardens or fruit trees inside the compound that would be tended as part of the commune. That could be due to the fact that oppressive regimes forbid having such gardens since those tending them would have an unequal share to a food source.

                          5. The residences of that commune are restricted to their living spaces and spend the day generating energy on treadmills. The compound is fenced in like a prison. Seems like their day would be spend on environmental restoration and the removal and recycling of all traces of the old civilization. Most of those structures would still be around at the time setting of the story.

                          6. The bus box makes no sense as a transport. Quadracycles, rickshaws, and hand pulled or pushed carts make more sense.

                          7. The feeding stations for squirrels. Animal rights believe that the artificial feeding of wild animals is interfering with the natural order of things. Many communities have already enacted ordinances that ban the feeding of deer, squirrels, birds, etc...

                          8. The living conditions during the time period that took place after Agenda 21 became law. It takes many decades for a population to submit to such change as what happened in the Soviet Union, DPRK, and similar oppressive regimes. Pushing that change too quickly would result in major resistance to such change. it has to take place gradually as what is currently taking place in our society.
