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.
