GLOSSARY OF TERMS
This glossary of terms is meant to help you realize just how polluted our daily life is with the rhetoric of those that wish to strip us of our personal property and individual rights.
Affordable: Example is Section 8, government subsidized. It encourages people to rely on the government for their housing, ergo - they give up personal property control to the government. (Mexico is an end result example of this - you can "lease" it for 99 years - but it is not yours).
Agenda 21: The actual document from 1992 that set the infrastructure that allowed governments worldwide to really get things going. No matter what it is called - sustainable, urban plan etc. - it is all the same infrastructure and ultimate goal of a "world government" body having say over your personal and individual property rights. Countries are no longer sovereign.
Agricultural Land Trust: Used to be a group of farmers that got together on their own volition and made decisions about their land and farming. Now it is government run, the farmer has no say, and the government dictates what they can and cannot do with their land.
APA - American Planning Association: An ideology -driven entity that sets the curriculum and policies for the teaching of and implementation planning all throughout the United States. They use the Agenda 21 infrastructure for the basis of all they do. At their 2012 international conference, the majority of keynote speakers were, or had been, key players at the United Nations.
Bill of Rights: US Constitutional rights that reflect natural law , deemed unalienable- we are born with these rights, they cannot be taken away. Conversely, Human Rights are granted to people under the Declaration of of Human Rights. Under this system the government can take these rights away to advance a centrally determined "common good".
Biodiversity: The dictionary defines it as a variety of plants and animals in their native environments/ habitats. It is used by globalists to promote fear around extinction of species so that they can activate the Endangered Species Act which has yet to have a single success! It is used as a weapon to abolish private property.
Blight: Another word for eminent domain. The local or county officials come in and declare an area "blighted" so that they can take control of it. It seems that it would apply to rundown areas - but many times it is applied to non-rundown or even brand new areas because the ultimate goal is government control.
Brownfields: This is much like "blight" but instead of just claiming things rundown - this is for areas that the government deems polluted or hazardous - and the scope of the determination is very vast and very broad so they can get just about anything through. Depending on the person handing down the verdict - a coal mine could be determined a brownfield because they think that coal is hazardous.
Charrettes: Another word for meeting or workshop. These meetings are specifically designed where the deck is stacked with people who want to implement the "sustainable" agenda. They will fill the room of people all on the same page, and then allow a small group of residents to join the workshop - but the verbiage and course of conversation is such that if any of the residents questions or opposes the thoughts of the others - they are singled out and seen as ignorant. They do this intentionally so that no one will speak out, and then they can later say that they held these workshops with the community and the community must want it because no one disagreed.
Cluster Development: Small, clustered developments that cramp people together while there are large amounts of space around them. This is classic of putting the rights of animals of plants above that of humans. It also prohibits the developer from building those communities that he may have first envisioned.
Collaboration: Used in conjunction with the "charrettes" - they "collaborated with the community and the community agreed."
Collective: When used in planning - it means government owned and/or controlled - it totally rids the individual of their personal property rights.
Collectivism: Political philosophy where a small group determines the "greater good" for the masses. While it could take the form of communism, fascism, socialism, etc, the common denominator is control over the population.
Commerce Clause: The Constitution provides that the federal government has power over commerce between states, but this power has been distorted and expanded beyond its original intention. The federal government uses this as an excuse to regulate resources, businesses and everything else.
Common-ism: Same as collective - other synonyms are "global village", "equalitarianism", "social democracy" and "common good."
Community Center: This is a place where you can take your kids to ballet and tap classes and the guys can go play basketball, right? Well, that is what it used to mean. NOW it means a development that has businesses on the bottom and dwelling apartments on the top, no one needs a car and to see how you would like it - I suggest you visit China or any other Communist country to see how well these "community centers" are working out for them
Communitarianism: If you think this sounds like Communism – it’s because it is. It is ignoring the individual rights and placing the “common good” (community) above the person. And who decides what is good for the community? The few in the government making and implementing policy.
Community Identity: Used to be in regards to the "indigenous people" but now it can mean anything the planners make up to suit the agenda of the time, or if they are having a difficult time getting their sustainable community through - they will make a controversial "community identity" - whether race based or sexual preference based, and then use this "identity" to belittle and degrade those who oppose the sustainable agenda by calling them bigots, racists ect, so they can gather favor with the uniformed citizenry.
Consensus: Same as collaboration.
Corridors: Areas targeted for control. This word applies to strips of land that interconnect with Wildlands, where human presence and resource extraction are not allowed. This word is also used in relation to transportation routes and power grids.
Councils:These organizations, comprised of insiders and stakeholders, are being used to usurp the power of local governments.
Delphi Technique: This is the technique used in the "charrettes" - basically obliterate all other points of views and questions other than your own to achieve an outcome.
Democracy: Remember - the USA is a REPUBLIC not a democracy. We have a democratic process, but what saves us from socialism or communism is the Republic - the individual rights of states and citizens - Democracy is mob rule. In regards to planning - property is used democratically to "level the playing field" - No need to keep up with the Joneses - your government and planning department (the mob rule in this case) can just blight an area - seize control and then make way for affordable housing - because they find it unfair that some have more than others - they feel that the community needs "social justice".
Density: Means the amount of houses/dwellings you can fit into an area. You have heard the word density a lot - and more than likely know what it is - but now - especially when someone hears "high density" - they know that means a lot of people in one space - and as the government and planning now is clustering more and more high density projects into smaller and smaller spaces - the planners and developers are being coached to use words and phrases like: "efficient use of land", "compact land use", "infill development", "land-use compatible with infrastructure", "smaller footprint", "community center" and "maximizing land use".
Dialectic: The Hegelian process of change in which a concept or its realization passes over into and is preserved and fulfilled by its opposite - development through the stages of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis in accordance with the laws of dialectical materialism - any systematic reasoning, exposition, or argument that juxtaposes opposed or contradictory ideas and usually seeks to resolve their conflict - the dialectical tension or opposition between two interacting forces or elements. This should not be in here – we need buzzwords – not an entire introduction and theory on Marxism
Dialectical Materialism: The Marxist theory that maintains the material basis of a reality constantly changing in a dialectical process and the priority of matter over mind." This should not be in here – we need buzzwords – not an entire introduction and theory on Marxism
Earth Summit: The name and various terms for “Sustainable Development” were first introduced within the United Nations in 1987 and to the world in 1992 at the "Earth Summit" in Rio de Janeiro. The precepts of that collective world government proposal, also known as Agenda 21, are now being promulgated throughout the Free World by an organization “ICLEI” (International Council of Local Environmental Councils)
Economic Prosperity: Public Private Partnerships (PPP). Special dealings between government and certain, chosen corporations which get tax breaks, grants and the government’s power of Eminent Domain to implement sustainable policy. This includes Government-sanctioned monopolies. The government in this case gets to pick the winners and losers – who gets to be successful and who does not. A great example of this is GE – the government gets GE to push their “sustainable” agenda and in turn the government allows GE to not pay taxes.
Eminent Domain: Compulsory purchase - is an action of the state to seize a citizen's private property, expropriate property, or seize a citizen's rights in property with due monetary compensation, but without the owner's consent. The property is taken either for government use or by delegation to third parties who will devote it to public or civic use or, in some cases, economic development. The most common uses of property taken by eminent domain in the past was for public utilities, highways, and railroads. Now that the public has caught onto the injustice of eminent domain – they have changed the language to “blight” or “re-zoning” – different words, same concept.
Endangered Species Act: This Act was based on a United Nations model and implemented through international treaties. It is a tool collectivists use to take over land and resources in pursuit of the abolition of private property.
Enumerated Powers: Power given to the congress in Article1, Section 8 of the Constitution, that are further limited by the Bill of Rights.
Environmental Justice: Putting the power into the environmental lobbyists hands instead of into the individual. The Lobbyists, government and activists get to decide what you get to do with your land – THEY determine what is fair, regardless of your rights and ownership of land.
Equal Justice: Equal Justice is a respect for independence and unalienable rights of the individual and general tolerance for individuality. Equal justice puts a checkmate on mob rule.
Fabianism: Constant, slow change in government. Incrementalism.
Facilitators : Paid workers who use peer pressure and psychological manipulation to obtain consensus. These are people at the "charrettes" and "workshops" that sit at the tables and amongst the citizens to steer the conversation through the "Delphi Technique"
Forfeiture: Another way, like "eminent domain" in which the government can take your personal property.
Freedom: Free will, the purported ability of agents to make choices free from certain kinds of constraints. Political freedom is the absence of interference with the sovereignty of an individual by the use of coercion or aggression. Economic freedom is the freedom to produce trade and consume any goods and services acquired without the use of force, fraud or theft.
Gaia: Pagan religion of nature worship honoring Mother Earth. Today, Gaia represents a philosophy that places nature above humans consistent with the Action Plan of Agenda 21. Agenda 21 is designed and used as a means to an end (depopulation and slavery). the Gaia philosophy is predicated on a "higher purpose" - to save nature at all costs.
Governance: To rule, control and manipulate America was based on the principals of a government of protection. G. Edward Griffin suggests we should not even use the word government, but a Protectorate instead.
Green: While we are all dependent upon and concerned about the environment, the environment has been elevated to a status above humans, under the banner of being "green".
Gerrymander: Division of areas to give special advantages to certain groups; it is a mechanism to adjust Congressional boundaries to meet the ruling political parties' objectives. Illegal immigration is a symptom of this type of social and political engineering.
Hegelian Dialectic : An interpretive method, originally used to relate specific entities or events to the absolute idea, in which an assertable proposition (thesis) is necessarily opposed by its apparent contradiction (antithesis), and both reconciled on a higher level of truth by a third proposition(synthesis). Also called Hegelian triad. This should not be in here – we need buzzwords – not an entire introduction and theory on Marxism.
Human Rights: Those rights granted by men and capable of being withdrawn by men as outlined in the U.N.'s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. (Article 29 "These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations." This means 'Human Rights' can be taken away).
ICLEI: “ICLEI” (International Council of Local Environmental Councils) is the governing body that ensures that the infrastructure and policies of Agenda 21 are implemented at the Federal, State and Local levels. Palm Springs, Murrieta and Temecula are all ICLEI cities. How do you become an ICLEI city? YOUR CITY COUNCIL DECIDES – and once they agree – they then use TAXPAYER dollars to pay their “dues” which then allow them to implement Agenda 21 at breakneck speed.
Income Re-Distribution: Socialism/Communism. The Government takes from people who they deem are eligible and then give that money, unaccounted for, elsewhere – regardless of rights, personal property and freedom. Do you know where your tax dollars go?
Infill Development: Developing in already high density areas. They are encouraged to do this so that it will cause traffic congestion and, hopefully, will get people out of their evil cars and get them to ride bikes or walk everywhere. The APA discourages this term since we have caught on to what it is.
Liberty: The concept of ideological and political philosophy that identifies the condition to which an individual has the right to behave according to one's own personal responsibility and free will. The conception of liberty is impacted by ideals concerning the social contract as well as arguments that are concerned with the state of nature.
Livable Communities: Livable communities have long been associated with other concepts like "walkable communities," "neo-traditional design," "new urbanism,".
Mixed Use Development: Means they can render the zoning of your property to anything that suits them. Pay attention to the general plans of your cities - in these you will find how they envision they will destroy your property value and force you to give it up or sell at marginal rates.
Multi Species Habitat: Means they can pick whatever small animal, rodent, amphibian ect and claim they have greater rights to your land than you do. Any one of these "species" they can pick from and use it to manipulate the use of your land.
NGO's - Non Governmental Organizations: Official non-Government Organizations known as NGOs are certified through the UN based on their compliance and willingness to institute UN created policies like Agenda 21 and the "Wildlands Project". Examples of NGOs include, but are not limited to: the Sierra Club, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, American Planning Association, and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability; formally known as the “International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives.”;
Open Space: May be defined as an area of land or water that either remains in its natural state or is used for agriculture, free from intensive development - basically - if you have a large piece of land and want to develop it - the government will not let you because they have declared it and "open space" - why? because where are large pieces of land located? In RURAL areas - and they don't want you building in rural areas - it is harder to control you when you live outside of what they have tried to engineer.
Public Visioning: The APA encourages planners not to use this wording as it is associated with the Delphi Technique as noted above.
Quality of Life: This phrase is frequently used in propaganda and official documents to sugar coat the underlying policies and intentions.
Regional, Regionalism, Regional Planning: The APA encourages planners not to use these terms due to the name association with big government planning and governmental overreach.
Smart Growth: The APA ties Smart Growth to “Sustainable Development”. It supposedly reduces the share of growth that occurs on newly urbanizing land, farmlands, and environmentally sensitive areas. Increase the density in existing urban areas and diminish development in the rural ones. This is why the “Wilderness Plan”, “habitat corridors”, “environmental easements” and “environmental overlays” are the code words being used by planners and environmentalists.
Social Equity: Another top down dictated attempt at engineering the impossible. Upshot: purported redistribution of wealth to the “collective” and ultimately State owned land at the expense of private property rights.
Social Justice: Originally formulated by Karl Marx. This is basically yet another ruse perpetuated by the government to make everyone a part of the “collective”. No more individuals. Result: sheeple and State domination.
Stakeholders: Not the actual property owner and adjacent neighbors; rather to the social planner and the State, this is the community at large and every governmental and NGO organization on the planet! The APA encourages planners to avoid using this word and instead describe it as “neighborhood collaborative planning”. Can you believe this drivel?
Sustainable Development: The U.N. document called Agenda 21 lays the blueprint for advancing Sustainable Development. This is a euphemism for depopulation and control. The basis of the design is the "Three E' program: "Equity"- using sociology and the law to create a global system of governance; "Economy"- meaning redistribution between nations and converting from free enterprise to Public- Private Partnership; and "Environment"- meaning nature above man.
Urban Growth Boundaries/UGB: On the one hand, an attempt to control urban sprawl, and on the other, to herd the masses into “stack and pack” living areas.
Visioning Council: A “stacked deck” council of cherry picked individuals in every region who stand to gain financially from Agenda 21 implementation. They falsely encourage the public input, and then proceed to Delphi them.
Walkable: Design urban areas for everything to be in walking distance. Once again, the objective here is to get rid of evil cars and also it is easier to control people in confined, small spaces.
Wetlands: In Agenda 21 this term is being abused at the expense of private property rights. Google Mike and Chantell Sackett for particulars.
Wildlife Connectivity & Habitat: Habitat is self –explanatory. Wildlife Connectivity is not. They connect by instinct, not by a man made plan.
