Agenda 21: A Sustained Attack On Property Rights

In a video produced by Infowars Nightly News journalists Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton, University of Texas professor Dean Almy attempts to downplay one of the central tenets of the United Nations’ Agenda 21 – property confiscation.


For the men who framed the Constitution, the right to property was paramount.

Almy argues that the word “collective” used by the Agenda 21 crowd is not some sort of Soviet buzzword. It’s simply people getting together to make decisions about their communities.

But despite his attempt to soften the blow of collectivism and make it more palatable and less threatening, Almy told the Texas Tribune in August that the “collective good” should rule over the rights of the individual.

“It’s changing the status quo of how we operate as a country that is developing, and so it’s threatening to some people,” Almy said. “Urban design by its nature is about the collective good, and it isn’t necessarily about the freedom of any one person to do whatever the hell they want.”

Almy’s remark and the entire philosophy of Agenda 21 represent a frontal assault on the very cornerstone of our republic – property rights and the natural right of free individuals to “do whatever the hell they want” so long as they do not infringe on the rights of other individuals.

For the men who framed the Constitution, the right to property was paramount. It was the foundation of all other rights. Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier write in Decision in Philadelphia that the founders had “an almost religious respect” for property, declared “the rights of property were inviolable” and regarded the Constitution as the embodiment of property rights.

So important was the ideal of property rights to the founders, they addressed it in the Federalist Papers nine times as often as they did voting rights, speech rights, privacy rights, religious rights, and press rights combined.

Rick Lynch explains in Property Rights, Freedom and the Constitution: “the philosophy behind property rights merely holds that man is born free, is his own master, possessing certain unalienable rights handed down from the Creator, and that no matter what form of government one lives under, no matter how many majority votes a government may summon up, one should still be able to practice his own religion, speak his thoughts, print and read material of his choosing, or engage in any of hundreds upon thousands of activities which do not harm others.”

Agenda 21 is a direct attack on this cherished concept. It demands the individual relinquish his or her property rights in the name of the “collective good,” which is of course the good of the state, the only entity that has the ability to force its will on the individual through violent coercion.

No, sir, 'global warming' which you really mean to say 'man-made' global warming does NOT exist.  The earth has historically gone through periods of cycles of solar heating and cooling.  Actually, the earth is getting cooler overall.

This guy is obviously and elitist/socialist.  He doesn't try to hide it if you listen to him. He'd rather live in an environment dominated by the "winners"/elitists.

Sounds like the "developments" mean inside developers ('winners') are involved.

A pictoral graph would be VERY helpful.

"...all funded by HUD" or Obama.  Please help me here so that we can make a DIRECT $$$ connection.

Comment by rtaylortitle on September 22, 2012 at 10:06am

You need to show a DIRECT money/grant connection between the UN, HUD and these committee meetings.  Stakeholders, planners, et al.  I'll check with the Glen Beck information...he's excellent at showing DIRECT connections.

not "handed down from the Creator"....automatically attached as a "natural" right by mere birth.  The universe has always existed and all the matter (organic or inorganic) in it. I wish people would quit trying to "push" religion in these otherwise excellent articles.
