Private property rights are under attack all across this nation and across the globe. The abolition of private property is one of the tenets of UN Agenda 21. Why? They deem private property ownership ( except for them) “unjust”.
The U.N. Conference on Human Settlements states:
“Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice…The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole.”
The Western World has thrived because we had laws which protected our property rights. (1) Most nations around the globe lack those protections which is one of the reasons why they’ve never been able to raise themselves out of squalor. They lack laws which protects their property rights.
“Property rights initiate the rule of law… what makes people interested in the rule of law, the first thing that they understand… is that everybody on this earth lives on a plot of land.” – Hernando De Soto, Economist (Peru)
Our prosperity must be equalized with and redistributed to third world nations. The people pushing UN Agenda 21 have no interest in raising the standard of living for all nations; their goal is to abolish all “first” world standards (except for them, of course) and to create a sea of serfs scrounging around for a grain of rice.
Agenda 21: California Law Would Abolish Private Property
The Last Resistance 1-15-14
“Part of the United Nations’ Agenda 21 is the abolition of private property. Confiscation of private property will be done under the guise of “sustainability.” They’ll argue that having a large plot of land is an inefficient use of the land, and that your land would be better used if it were developed into something else. [ Or not developed at all.]
Perhaps they’d prefer that a mass transit [light] rail run right through your property. So they’d take your property over through eminent domain, forcing your out of your own house and off your property to somewhere else where they have much more dense housing, and use the land that was previously yours as they saw fit. [Here are some of the lies being told to to Floridians about “light rail”.]
These types of tyrannical gestures are being implemented around our country at the local level. In California, there is a law that’s awaiting Governor Brown’s signature that would institute an agency at the county level that could seize private property basically on a whim and using “sustainability” as the excuse.
A city mayor or county supervisor forms a new joint powers authority called a “Sustainable Communities Investment Authority” (SCIA), they appoint elected officials to serve on the SCIAs board.
If you live within 1/2 mile of a bus that runs every 15 minutes during peak commutes, or the SMART train or Caltrain in a single family home neighborhood your neighborhood can be targeted by the SCIA as inefficient land use and “blighted” as it is not high density multi-family housing. Almost everyone reading this in Marin (apart from some Steve Kinsey constituents in Western Marin) is therefore affected – I have seen the map with these 1/2 mile radiuses and it covers almost all Marinites.
The SCIA can then wield the power of eminent domain to purchase unused, for sale or even occupied land in order to build high-density multi-family housing – that it deems to be efficient land use.
The SCIA can then impose local taxes on us to pay not just for the eminent domain purchases but to help the land developer build by subsidizing the building of high density housing.
In order to meet criteria in SB1 allowing imposition of local taxes the SCIA must impose “a sustainable parking standards ordinance that restricts parking in transit priority project areas to encourage transit use to the greatest extent feasible.” Yes you read that right, “to the greatest extent feasible.” This could mean anything from reducing available parking, to introducing parking permits and parking meters.
This is, of course, nothing less than communism. They just don’t call it communism. They disguise what they are doing by calling it “social justice.”
The following short video is an excerpt of a visioning meeting (visioning meetings are happening in your area too) held in the San Francisco Bay area. They pretend they want public input regarding the pending “One Bay Area” Regional Plan. Each area in the nation has a regional plan. You will also find contained within your regional plan the exact concepts as the ones discussed in the video. Take particular note around the 4:50 mark where the speaker makes the following claim: “the more we constrain development the lower property values get propagated”. Wrong! This is moron speak. The idiot claims if less property is available to be developed, this will decrease the cost of property which is exactly the opposite of what happens under the law of supply and demand: The less you have of something – the more it costs. Period.
If you would like to see this in action look no further than Portland, Oregon’s cost of housing. They have placed an arbitrary “urban growth boundary” around their city which limits development only to within this boundary and development only as they deem appropriate. As a direct consequence of this, the property within the boundary costs about $100,000 an acre and outside the boundary about $5000, however you are not allowed to develop your property outside the boundary. They want your property to be left as open space. In other words, they have denied you the right to use your property to generate wealth. Look here.
I interviewed a man from the organization Oregonians in Action who explained how this works in the real world. Listen here. This IS happening where you live too.
