Is Smart Growth a United Nations Plot?
The fact that Agenda 21's recommendations are entirely voluntary hasn't stopped a fullscale panic, says Robert Steutville:
"This article co-authored by Wendell Cox and Ronald Utt focuses on the United Nation's Agenda 21, adopted in 1992, and its supposed connection to the smart growth movement. I guess the point is that if the UN issues a proclamation - in this case in favor of sustainable development - then any related activity must be part of some kind of world-government plot. The UN is also in favor of economic growth, peace, diplomatic relations, and education, and for programs that fight hunger, disease, and tooth decay."
