Hanging in the hallways of Northeastern State University’s Broken Arrow Oklahoma campus are signs that state the following: Developing Global Citizens for the 21st century and a Sustainable Future. It’s hard to believe because Oklahoma is said to be one of the most conservative states in the union; however, the state’s universities are overflowing with hard-core leftists who are attempting to change the worldview of our younger generations.
I specifically remember the very last day of my last class right before graduation. We watched a video that was essentially describing the end game goals of UN Agenda 21, and their plans to use the wealth of the United States to redistribute to third world countries. The video was complete with blaming capitalism and gun owners (of course) for all of the world’s problems and it was very convincing in its argument that America owed the world a “climate debt” because of our greedy, industrial society.
I found this very interesting because this was around the same time that Common Core was beginning to appear in the education arena. The point is that Common Core, and education in general, are vehicles through which UN’s Agenda 21 will secure its own future.
There has been a big upheaval against Common Core education, mainly because of the national standardization and the ridiculous methods in which they teach math; however, I’m afraid many people don’t see it for what it is: global collectivization.
The UN believes it essential that education be standardized across the world in order to get everyone on board with Agenda 21 (sustainable development). Truthfully, they won’t have to convince anyone since the social sciences have mastered the arts of manipulating human behavior and made tremendous progress in learning how to indoctrinate people into a certain worldview.
The following is from the United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) website:
The UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014) seeks to mobilize the educational resources of the world to help create a more sustainable future. Many paths to sustainability (e.g. sustainable agriculture and forestry, research and technology transfer, finance, sustainable production and consumption) exist and are mentioned in the 40 chapters of Agenda 21, the official document of the 1992 Earth Summit. Education is one of these paths. Education alone cannot achieve a more sustainable future; however, without education and learning for sustainable development, we will not be able to reach that goal.
There are a couple of important things to look at here. First, the very first sentence of the quote states that the UN seeks to mobilize the world’s educational resources to create a more sustainable future. Not only were they successful in getting the majority of U.S. universities on board, they also have president Obama calling for the creation of a global education fund. While this was as early as 2008, I don’t think many people realized the connection between Agenda 21, Common Core and Obama’s inclination towards world socialism. To stress the significance of this further, I remind you of the collective, national standardization of Common Core and ask you to now think of that on global terms. They are seeking to turn our children into automatons who believe we need government to save us from global warming.
Second, if this isn’t enough to convince you let me direct you to another UN document concerning education. The Dakar Framework Education For All: Meeting Our Collective Commitments clearly states on page 8, section six, that education is “the key” to the successful implementation of sustainable development programs. Now here comes the really good part, so brace yourself. They also refer to education as a fundamental human right and that all people should have access to free education. We all know that education is not a human right because it is not free. In order to have a free education, someone else has to pay for it.
This is where the document UN Conventions on the Rights of the Child comes into play. Liberals love this because they believe that it guarantees the rights of everyone to have a good education; however, it does way more than that. It puts all of the rights concerning education into the hands of the child and the government, parents no longer have a say. A free, state provided education is now a fundamental human right for young children and parents can be held criminally liable for failing to provide it in some parts of the world. This is significant when you consider the next part of the Dakar Framework:
We hereby collectively commit ourselves to the attainment
of the following goals:
(i) expanding and improving comprehensive early childhood
care and education, especially for the most vulnerable
and disadvantaged children;
(ii) ensuring that by 2015 all children, particularly girls,
children in difficult circumstances and those belonging
to ethnic minorities, have access to and complete, free
and compulsory primary education of good quality;
One of the primary goals of Marxism is to take a hold of children as early as possible and educate them into the ways of the state. Even here in the United States, the left tries to pass legislation that would put young children under the state’s influence in programs like “Head Start.” The left, having mastered the social sciences believes that they can shape an individual into becoming anything they want. This is best illustrated in the film “Agenda: Grinding America Down” when the narrator quotes Bertrand Russell, who believed free will could be driven out of an individual through education. The quote is quite telling regarding the overall attitude of the left towards individuality:
“The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black.”
It is clear by looking at the stated goals of the UN and the efforts of U.S. schools and universities, that there is an effort to retrain us all into thinking we need government. The left is attempting to train us to believe that only the UN, set up as a global governing body, has the power and necessary resources to save humanity from ourselves. If you still doubt this please refer once again to the forty-five goals of the communist takeover of America. Here is goal number 11:
Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one world government with its own independent armed forces.
We can ignore this, but I believe to do so is to allow the left’s agenda to come to fruition that much more quickly. Is that really what you want for America?
