Proclaiming the cosmos (universe) as his god, Mikhail Gorbachev handpicked deep ecology as the handy “international disaster key” required for establishing global governance driven by civil society, or non-governmental organizations (NGOs). To this end, Gorbachev calls for integrated global policies that smack of Native American earth servitude.
Gorbachev insists that “necessary” environmental regulations be imposed worldwide. His is a type of planetary commandment rooted in the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. Called the Earth Charter, this key document is one-of-three designed to solidify political, economic, social, and religious changes deemed essential in a new world order. The other two are the UN Charter and the International Declaration of Human Rights.
Once secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, essentially the national leader, from 1985 to 1991, Gorbachev has since created a new political party called the Independent Democratic Party of Russia, which he characterizes as “social-democratic.”
That said, Gorbachev’s Green Cross International is more “Red” than it is green. His foundation and he actively work on behalf of the New Paradigm at a former U.S. military base. The Presidio in San Francisco serves as a sort of “White House on the West Coast.”
Globalism’s Central Organizing Principle: Sustainable Development
While propelling the misleading ideal of “global democracy,” today’s burgeoning, borderless, one-world state operates under the United Nations’ guiding principle of sustainable development. While the term “sustainable development,” or “smart growth,” has a noble ring, its agenda is by no means faith-, family-, or America- friendly.
In 1948, a preliminary draft of a World Constitution included the right of a Federal Republic of the World to seize and use property in sustainable society. Keep in mind that Point One of the Communist Manifesto likewise calls for outright abolition of private property; and sustainable development is described, not in any of our nation’s founding documents, but rather in the 1997 USSR Constitution (Chapter #2; Article 18).
In his letter to President George Bush dated December 25, 2000, Mikhail Gorbachev insisted that America’s extraordinary privilege is not tenable over the long run. To the contrary, the one-world vision demands “equitable distribution” of the world’s finite resources. This Robin Hood approach to wealth distribution is classic Marxism.
Indeed, the Marxist-Leninist maxim of “earning one’s keep on planet earth” is at the heart of sustainability. To merit this coveted status, enlightened communities must limit growth, eliminate suburbs, establish ethnic/economic equality, and curtail consumption patterns consistent with America’s middle class.
The socialist principle of government-managed development, sustainable development calls for revamping the very infrastructure of our nation away from private ownership and control of property to nothing short of a national zoning system through which producers are expected to provide for non-producers.
Good global citizens are herded out of the suburbs into urban clusters more easily controlled and regulated by UN-empowered special interest groups. Already, communities boast extensive code enforcement departments. For example, in Birmingham, Mobile, and Atlanta, code enforcers are called Environmental Police; and they mean business.
Land-Grab Bully on the Global Block
Worldwide, hundreds of scenic and cultural treasures are already UN regulated. Disturbingly, the United Nations has designated as Heritage Sites dozens of monuments across our nation. In fact, through the World Heritage Convention, the lion’s share of our national preserves, parks, and monuments (e.g., the Statue of Liberty and Independence Hall) already fall under protection of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
Furthermore, the federal government owns some 40 percent of the entire land mass of our nation; and states own a big hunk as well. When it comes to land use under UN control, there is no clear distinction between federal and privately owned land.
Purposing to “wild” fully half of U.S. land, the United Nations Wildlands Project describes biosphere core- and buffer- zones with corridors as places where, in the words of Professor Reed F. Noss (University of Florida), “collectivist needs of non-human species must take precedence over the needs and desires of humans.”
Contained in Agenda 21, the Desertification Treaty claims jurisdiction over some 70 percent of the earth’s land. Although no enforcement mechanism is in place, the UN works to prevent land use that lends to desertification—e.g., converting forests to pasture, or pasture to row crops, or croplands to subdivisions. A convention adopted in Paris (1994), the Desertification Treaty is integral to the global agenda.
Black Widow Lady Gaia
The same holds true for the earth-centric Gaia hypothesis. In Greek mythology, Gaia is goddess of the earth, now perceived as an interconnected, living ecosystem whose delicate nature demands protection of world government. In 1982, British atmospheric chemist James Lovelock expounded the basis for sustainability. Lovelock’s Gaia hypothesis warned that, unless humans halt their technical assault on the planet, Mother Earth cannot heal herself and, for that reason, faces certain destruction.
To the contrary, anthropocentricity celebrates humans as the very crown of God’s creation—not a blight on it. Yet a new breed of eco-theologians insists that human activities like eating meat or previously frozen fast foods, consuming fossil fuels, and using air conditioning and appliances are, well, simply unsustainable.
Maurice Strong’s 1,100-page Global Biodiversity Assessment (GBA) implements policy of a treaty signed at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. Put out by Cambridge University, the GBA suggests a cure for “human-pox”: Simply cut the world’s population by approximately 80 percent and then establish a feudal lifestyle short on amenities, tall on earth servitude à la Gorbachev.
Moreover, Canadian billionaire and 1992 Rio Earth Summit secretary-general Strong contends that global ecosystems will be preserved only when affluent nations significantly lower their standards of living. Never mind that the Genesis account sanctions basic human need meeting as fully compatible with biblically mandated earth stewardship.
Stewardship or Earth Servitude?
Compulsory green living is nowhere in the Bible; furthermore, theologian Wayne Grudem rightly questions the likelihood that God would design a world in such a way that, over time, mundane human activities (such as breathing, cooking, traveling, and keeping warm) would devastate His handiwork. Yet in an apparent effort to counter the culture of abundance with “a rite of atonement for the sin of excess,” increasingly more evangelicals devote themselves to saving the planet.
By letter dated March 1, 2007, Dr. James Dobson joined an impressive array of pro-family Christian leaders requesting that the National Association of Evangelicals refrain from endorsing controversial and divisive environmental causes, such as human-induced global warming. Now, planet preservation trumps the traditional call to earth conservation.
Deep Ecology—In Pursuit of Planetics
Contrary to politically correct dogma, the science assigning human blame for catastrophic warming of the planet is by no means settled. The truth remains that, when it comes to environmental health, science trumps passion and politics. Nevertheless, self-proclaimed eco-experts continue to elude hard-hitting challenges to their theory, as posed by colleagues of equally impressive credentials. Some follow:
If we are in global warming crisis, how is it that 24/7 data-collecting
satellites and weather balloons demonstrate imperceptible temperature
• If CO2 threatens to endanger world food output, how is it that an increase in CO2 yields more (not less) biomass production?
• If global warming can be blamed on carbon emissions due to human activities, how come distinguished scientists believe that CO2 generally lags behind temperature changes by some eight hundred years?
• How exactly are humans to blame for global warming evident on Mars and other planets, and why was the fifteenth century every bit as warm as the twentieth when only the latter experienced an industrial revolution blamed for it?
• Since the McIntyre and McKitrick Report discredited the “hockey stick curve” due to a computer glitch, why continue to use it as proof; and why was the BH98 Report (or “hockey stick curve”) never audited?
• In 1941 a plane crashed in Greenland. From the date of the crash to 1992, ice accumulated up to 268 feet atop a well-preserved plane. Why so much ice if land mass sloughs due to global warming have dangerously escalated throughout the decades?
• Finally, why do studies challenging, say, ocean-flow data (its role crucial in global warming) appear on the tenth page of city newspapers when earlier studies (apparently not “settled science,” as the public is lead to believe) merit front-page status?
Through the UN Climate Change Treaty and its subsequent Kyoto Protocol, globalists favor foreign interests by forcing regulatory control and limitations on U.S. economic growth. When not ratified by the U.S. Senate, international treaties employ back-door means, as executive orders, to implement key components of the global eco-agenda.
Surprising to some, the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) is declining worldwide. In developed countries, the rate is below zero growth. Thus, Allan Carlson (President of the Howard Center for Family, Religion, and Society in Rockford, Illinois) fingers depopulation, not overpopulation, as the dominant 21st century issue.
Nevertheless, sustainable development calls for population control of Malthusian magnitude. It is no wonder that death by suicide, physician assistance, abortion, and euthanasia enjoy high profile, big money, organizational clout.
The United Nations’ Year of the Family is a campaign to redefine the nuclear traditional family in support of cohabitation, single-parent households, and same-gender partnerships. Intolerance for homosexual unions is decreed a global threat because non-proliferating alternative lifestyles, as theirs, bear the sustainability seal of approval.
The same applies to legalized, nonproductive, and “safe” voluntary prostitution, likewise advanced by an international bill of rights for women called the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women.
In 1932 American Birth Control League founder Margaret Sanger published a Plan for Peace in which she called for coercive sterilization. Incredibly, Sanger likewise demanded mandatory segregation and rehabilitative camps for “dysgenic stocks”—i.e., Blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, and Catholics. I kid you not!
And, yes, this is the same Margaret Sanger who founded Planned Parenthood, best known for globally promoting and performing “fully-accessible-to-all” abortions. Today, the U.S. government gives tens of millions of our tax dollars to Planned Parenthood and similar organizations; furthermore, industrialized nations provide some one-and-one-half billion dollars annually for UN population control.
English biologist Charles Darwin validated the supposed humaneness of nature, which destroys the weak to give place to the strong. In search of a superior species better suited for higher levels of existence on our ever-evolving planet, humanist bio-ethicists condemn some lives as not worth the living. Examples include useless eaters (the newborn called non-person neonates); the comatose, disabled, or terminally ill; those severely depressed or mentally impaired; the elderly; and eventually (I’m guessing), independent thinkers.
To the globalist, no one can or should live the anthropocentric fable found within a presumed-to-be-archaic, sanctity-of-human life ethic. While animals are “not ours to eat, wear, experiment with or use for entertainment,” nonproductive human life is justifiably expendable and subject to medical experimentation for the greater, global good. Baby pesticides and neo-mort harvesting naturally follow the Kevorkian practice of physician-assisted suicide.
Development that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (Gro Harlem Brundland) resonates with most. No wonder federal agencies as the Environmental Protection Agency offer “Visioning” and “Challenge” grants to local communities willing to take the leap to said sustainability.
But, then, action plans empower government to exercise “complete sovereignty over land … [and] human settlements …” (1976 U.N. Conference on Human Settlements, D(1)d), further allowing government to “enter upon the land and act to put it in compliance.”

Hence, Constitutional rights to life, liberty, property and privacy are undermined systematically by a “rigged,” PC-propelled consensus process. Then, they are violated by uniform governmental building, conservation, property maintenance, and zoning codes, purportedly to preserve our planet.
Keep in mind that this lean, mean, green machine shows no mercy to non-producing consumers—you know, like babies, the handicapped and elderly among us. For part one click below.

2- http://www.earthcharter.org. Note that the Earth Charter emphasizes our saving Mother Earth. Objectives include tolerance, united strength with armed forces under the UN banner, and involuntary redistribution of wealth. The charter redefines America’s doctrine of original intent, the U.S. Constitution, which has served as the supreme law of the federal government since its adoption in 1789.
3- In 1977 the Constitution for the Federation of Earth was adopted by twenty-five countries at the second session of the World Constituent Assembly. It’s been said that its preamble reads like a New Age occult manual.
4- In Daniel 11:24 the Bible makes prophetic reference to distribution of wealth. A type of the Antichrist, whom he foreshadows, King Antiochus Epiphanes (known as “the Mad One”) would likewise “scatter the prey and spoil and riches” among the peaceable league made with him.
5- Brzezinski believed that “Marxism represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing of man’s universal vision.” See: Zbigniew Brzezinski, In Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era (New York, New York: Viking Press, 1970).
6- 2 Thessalonians 3:10; Matt. 25:25-26, 29-30. In Proverbs 6:6, the root word for sluggard means “to lean.” In contemporary America, those who indulge in welfare fraud qualify as “leaners.” They likewise warrant the uncomely label Adam belial, or “worthless mankind.” The root word for “wicked man” in verse 12 is “to pant”—that is, to expend energy without producing and, consequently, to facsimile a brute beast, prone to mischief and discord (verse 14).

Instead, a new earth (not to be confused with Eckhart Tolle’s “new earth”) will take its place (Revelation 21:1). Until then, God will not fail to supply all material needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

20- Thomas Robert Malthus (1766-1834) was an English economist and cleric whose Essay on the Principle of Population (1798, revised 1803) advocated population control. Malthus first presented the flawed theory that earth’s resources are limited and, with massive increase in human population, they face depletion. His philosophy that populations increase in geometric ratio, while food supplies increase only in arithmetic ratio, upholds the UN concept of sustainable development.
21- Daniel 11:23 indicates that Antichrist will be strong over those deemed to be “small people.” His bidding is that of the Devil, a “murderer from the beginning” (John 8:44).
22- 47 Romans 1:25-28. In Daniel 11:37, we learn this about this about the Antichrist: “Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women.” In his regime, traditional family isn’t honored.

25- Although respect of persons plays into the global agenda, the concept is at odds with Bible protocol (Acts 10:34).
26- The notion that animals deserve to become a protected societal class is the myth commonly promulgated by advocates of PeTA. God made garments of animal skin for Adam and Eve to wear, and Christ Himself ate broiled fish. Similarly, as a tent-maker, Paul was no animal-rights activist; he fabricated tents from strong goat’s-hair cloth stretched over poles and held in place by cords that reached out to stakes driven into the ground. In God’s economy, humans are of infinitely greater value than other life forms (Matthew 10:31).
