Glenn Beck’s Dystopian Thriller about the Very Real UN Policy of Sustainable Development
Conservative commentator Glenn Beck has co-authored a frightening new book about the future of our society under the local auspices of ‘sustainable development,’ called Agenda 21. Although it is a work of fiction, it could become nonfiction. Agenda 21 is the United Nations program that is being implemented piecemeal by nations under a stealth plan that can be found out in the open seeking to achieve “global sustainability,” one community, one town, and one city at a time. Agenda 21 will create a planned central economy that will determine the way we live, eat, learn, move and communicate, all under the guise of “protecting the environment and saving the earth” from the human footprint. The totalitarian society portrayed in the book is eerily reminiscent of the 1949 satirical dystopian novel written by British author George Orwell entitled Nineteen Eighty-Four-1984, portending daily life under the system of totalitarian communism. In Agenda 21, humans live under severe government regulations so burdensome that life has become virtual slavery. There is no Congress, no President, or freedom. The United States has been replaced by “The Republic.” Co-author Harriet Parke decided to write the novel after discovering the truth about Agenda 21 from Beck’s exposes.
Written from the perspective of a young woman, Emmeline, the story takes place less than a generation after Agenda 21 has radically transformed American society. The goals and lingo of Agenda 21 have become fully intertwined with drastic government regulations. People were “promised Paradise” in the beginning in order to persuade them to move into “Planned Communities.” They were told that it was necessary in order to preserve the earth. Once living in these cramped quarters where the government could spy on them, it became difficult to object to anything. Elections were ended because “the officials felt that people kept making the wrong decisions.”
In Agenda 21, the government has complete control over family life, in order to ensure that citizens do not make irresponsible decisions and waste resources. Citizens are told who to marry and urged to have babies. Women are prohibited from living alone. Children are taken from their parents at birth and raised in “The Children’s Village,” where their parents are forbidden from visiting them. Babies born with defects are destroyed. Emmeline becomes pregnant and has a baby, Elsa, who is taken away from her and placed in the Children’s Village. Fortunately, she obtains employment at the Children’s Village, where she is able to occasionally sneak visits with Elsa. Emmeline goes through three husbands in a short period of time. The instant she reaches the reproduction age of 14, she is “paired” with a husband. He is eventually taken away by the Authorities when they suspect him of plotting with her father to escape from the Planned Community. Her second husband is taken away when he becomes stressed out and refuses to go to work one day.
