Do they? Last I heard, the plan is to enable the planet to hold 11 billion by 2150.
I remember Nixon started it with the Trifecta… Tribecca, Trilateral Company… Commendation… Commission, I dunno, in the early 1970s.
[I had a nutty neighbor that talked about it non-stop in the 1980s, something involving the Roman Catholic church’s plot and the UN and stuff]
“Invest in Silver Kenny – Reagan will blow up the planet with Star Wars!”… ugh. It was funny listening to him go on and on though.
Oh I’m sure there’s plots. But any kind of NWO level reorganization would fall apart once exposed. Once it’s known, folks fight back. It’s not a left or a right thing but an authoritarian vs citizen thing.
It’s not depopulation though but reorganization. Encouraging smaller families allows for better allocation of resources and elimination of extreme poverty.
People are living longer which increases the population compared to the past.
Yet extreme measures such as forced sterilization or China’s old “one child per family” were too far in the unacceptable dept.
I worked a little with UNICEF in the early 1990s and became familiar with Agenda 21 and related things.
The point of it is to AVOID extreme measures by talking about it LONG ahead of time.
It’s not like the horse and carriage to cars change, which put millions of horses out of work.
Humans can do other things with their time.
We have a very resource-full planet, filled with resourceful people. Balancing rights and responsibilities is not easy for anybody but staying rational about human needs, which are diverse and varied allows us to be at least somewhat prepared for what might come next, whatever that may be.
crickey, am I a neolib? Where’s my Red Phone to the World Bank? I need a microloan. Ok, yeah, I buy into a lot of this stuff.
That’s why we must ensure rational humans with ears that listen are in positions of power. “I won, I can do what I want” is not good.
I worry more about excess privatization than govt as govt has theoretical accountability, at least in the USA. But privatization without restrictions are like govts that don’t have to answer to anything but whatever their contracts say.
[I’m not a neolib btw – I was by default once but I’ve gained a distaste for the capitalism-will-save-us-all philosophy]
Theoretically. Not fully though. Florida’s Sunshine Laws are, I think, a model for all 50 states, territories and federal levels.
The flaw with Florida’s Sunshine Laws is what it doesn’t cover. I agree that mental illness should have privacy. But I don’t agree with the ability of police to quietly whisk someone away, taking away their rights based on an accusation of mental illness, where the family isn’t even kept informed. That’s an abuse.
ALWAYS have to watch out for exceptions to a law.
Gov Rick Scott’s Risk Protection Order was a poor response to the big school shooting and now he’s running for Senator.
It basically erases people. Too far.
Yeah.. I mean there’s never really been socialism as capitalism has always ruled, even in the socialist countries.
But, there’s also never been a purely capitalist state as human welfare is a necessary ingredient in a functioning society.
