Well, well, well, what have we here? ahh yes, the newest code word for taking your private property and forcing you into “metropolitan” areas of the Country and it sounds so pretty, its called Smart Growth Plans. The gist is to make large swaths of the Country only for agricultural growth, thereby negating its use for communities of human beings and houses they like to live in When We Rip the Federal Government In Half, These Types of Marxist/Socialist/Statist Thought Patterns Will No Longer Be Contained In DC
A recent article in Washington Post appeared with the innocuous title, â€œWhat we need: Smarter growth plans.â€ The author is Roger K. Lewis, a practicing architect and professor emeritus at the University of Maryland. Who can possibly object to â€œsmarter growth plans?â€ Except that â€œsmart growth plansâ€ is the euphemism used by the United Nations for its Agenda 21, a direct assault on private property rights and American sovereignty.
Roger K. Lewis suggests that â€œsmart growthâ€ was designed by market forces driven by â€œgreen building.â€ He makes no mention of Agenda 21 and ICLEI objectives and intrusion into our society since the early 1970s or the agreement signed in 1992 that went under the radar of the American peopleâ€™s understanding of the complex negative ramifications for our economy and our liberties.
I have not met Americans who think, â€œsprawl-producing planning, zoning and mortgage templates are obsoleteâ€ as the author claims. Would Americans willingly give up their land and homes with or without compensation in exchange for a move to a densely populated high-rise, with no parking garages, no access to cars, like rats fenced in a grey concrete maze?
Communist â€œsocial engineeringâ€ confiscated land and homes for agriculture. People were forced to move into many-storied, tiny cinder block apartments without any compensation for the land or homes bulldozed. They were forced to commute by bicycles or public transit.
Lewis deems subdivision developments with low-density, detached, single-family homes as outdated. He calls the areas educationally dysfunctional and unsafe. American suburbia was built, he says, on four assumptions that have lost validity today:
Unlimited supply of land
Inexpensive and inexhaustible supply of oil
Homogenous land use
The American dream to own and inhabit a mortgaged house.
I am not sure on what research Lewis based his conclusions, but we have huge domestic oil reserves if permits were issued to drill. We also have a vast land mass. Some areas have 70 or less inhabitants per square mile. Americans still want to own their own home and want to live in a homogeneous community of other homeowners. Just because power hungry bureaucrats at the United Nations have decided to â€œpreserveâ€ land and the environment for the future of the planet and its animals, neglecting the future of humans, does not mean Americans agree to this vision.
The United Nations has this same plan under the title Agenda 21, and every damn Communist and Socialist and Marxist around the world dreams of the day the United States of America is brought to heel under their power. Each and every election, from the primaries to Election Day is as important as breathing for Conservatives from the day you can first vote to the day you die to save this Country from those who would destroy it for their own power. There are just as many Republicans as Democrats who seek to have the power to tell you what to do each and every day and it is up to We The People to destroy them first!
