On this week's radio show, "We The People," activist Michael Shaw picked up where Michael Coffman left off with regard to Agenda 21, the United Nations' so-called sustainable development initiative that critics say would abolish private property as we know it.
Shaw said he believes efforts by the United Nations and others to remove human beings from rural areas is working; he notes that there are about half the number of ranchers in America today than there were 20 years ago. As people continue to be pushed into urban areas, it will be the animals who will roam free and the people will be in cages, in the form of "smart" communities, he said.
While areas like far Northern California have little voice in their state capital or even in Washington, the true battleground for implementation of Agenda 21 is with local government, including special districts and school boards, he said. The first community that rejects so-called "sustainable" planning principles could set a trend, he said.
