With the advent of Agenda 21 being implemented throughout the United States, the concept of regionalism has taken form and structure in almost every community. Whereas citizens of cities and counties elect their own governing representatives (mayors, commissioners, etc.), regional authorities are unelected and generally unaccountable and yet they subsume all other organizations within their geographic boundaries. Agenda 21 and sustainable development are the driving forces behind regionalism, providing the rationale for limiting human activity, restructuring communities to be “sustainable” and for providing regulations to insure compliance.
Regionalism destroys traditional political boundaries, such as county lines, and ushers in a transformed system of governance that ultimately abolishes private property and the rights of the individual. Regionalism has infiltrated cities and counties everywhere, affecting transportation, water, farming and land use systems… literally every aspect of our life. Agenda 21, with its dogma of sustainable development, is completely antithetical to Constitutional government and the American way of life.
The additional resources below will provide more comprehensive information. If Regionalism concerns you, then you should look for a local group to join, and if possible, work with them in a local action plan to resist the implementation in your community.
