News that members of the Georgia State Senate were paid to attend a meeting hosted by a conspiracy theorist warning of a UN takeover and Barack Obama employing mind control methods to accomplish it, has generated widespread criticism, especially of Georgia Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers who gave the gathering his blessing.
The idea that Agenda 21 is a UN plot to take away American freedoms has been going on for sometime. To be fair, it’s possible to read anything one wants into Agenda 21, as is the case with most of the UN’s long-winded declarations. Part of the problem is that documents like Agenda 21 were written by 178 nations. That means there is a lot of garbage going in. Agenda 21 has many things that are unappealing. Nevertheless, it remains a document meant to promote sustainability. It is nonbinding and voluntary. It was also signed by George H.W. Bush but never ratified by the Senate.
