The Town of Brattleboro is deceiving its people.
Specifically, I note that, next week, the town will host a couple of "visioning" sessions for residents.
The lie is that these sessions are to hear what the people of Brattleboro want their town to look like years from now, so that this common "vision" can be implemented.
The truth is that Brattleboro is a member of ICLEI, the executive arm of the United Nations' Agenda 21, Blueprint for Humanity, a self-described UN effort to control all human behavior and to impose "universal design" on what it refers to as all "human settlements."
The UN is seeking -- by stealth -- to make all "human settlements" globally conform to the UN's perverse version of "sustainability."
Brattleboro's sessions will be like the thousands of "visioning" sessions that ICLEI has already held in the more than 10,000 member "human settlements," in that they will employ the Delphi Method, developed by the Rand Corporation to achieve a manufactured and artificial consensus around a pre-determined outcome.
The pre-determined outcome will be a "vision" that Brattleboro will magically share with the literally thousand of other "visions" ICLEI has already imposed on its member "human settlements." (This includes ICLEI's Master plan for West Brattleboro.)
And ICLEI will claim that the participation of a few, manipulated Brattleboro residents at the meeting offers the legitimacy for it to impose this ultimately politically ugly "vision" on the entire community.
ICLEI and Agenda 21 are not benign forces. They are wolves in sheep's clothing working in the shadows. Their goal is to establish an apparatus of rigid control, by way of local rules and regulations, in the guise of "sustainability."
The best defense against ICLEI is to tell the town government to dump them and all the material that they have provided to the town and that the town has, for years, passed off as its own work. Increasing numbers of communities who have educated themselves on Agenda 21 and ICLEI have now done this.
But bruised egos, fear of public embarrassment and lost jobs in the town offices will prevent that.
The next best thing is for as many people as possible to attend these meetings, refuse to take part in the childish "visioning" activities that will probably be provided, and ask lots and lots of questions, particularly with respect to the amazing similarity and uniformity of local "visions" and master plans globally as determined by ICLEI.
Anyone with an Internet connection should research all of the above, beginning with reviewing any lecture on Agenda 21 by Lesbian Democrat and Green Activist, Rosa Koire, author of the "Green Mask," an environmentalist's expose of Agenda 21.
Show up. Speak up. And don't be deterred by the peer pressure to shut up, which is a central component of the Delphi Method.
If Brattleboro doesn't stop ICLEI now, it might not get another chance.
