Uninhabitable Habitat for the World

Next month UN officials, stakeholders, NGOs, civil society, and world leaders will go back to Istanbul to, hopefully on their part, finish what they started mapping out in 1976 in Vancouver and 1996 in Istanbul. That is: because the cities are the vectors of social change, moving people to settlements of densely packed apartments (over service businesses and under offices) instead of single family homes, especially in the suburbs; walking and biking instead of driving personal cars; human rights instead of religious freedoms; temples to Gaia instead of churches and synagogues.

Habitat III – United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development

“In resolution 66/207 and in line with the bi-decennial cycle (1976, 1996 and 2016), the United Nations General Assembly decided to convene, the Habitat III Conference to reinvigorate the global commitment to sustainable urbanization, to focus on the implementation of a “New Urban Agenda”, building on the Habitat Agenda of Istanbul in 1996.”

The matrix for this began over a century ago. In previous blogs I gave information on some of the elements being put in place to carry out a world coup, including the use of education to reprogram our children into becoming drones for the elite; the use of media to act as part of the education process that counters individualism; programming the people to ‘accept unthinkable limits on consumption, land use, transportation, and family size;’ and divert all spirituality to an interfaith group that will focus belief in the spirit of Mother Earth.

So now more on how we got from an American dream of personal freedom and rule of law designed and built by the Founding Fathers to the formation of a one world government designed around the Communist Manifesto rewrit in soft and fuzzy wording.

“America has been moving in this sad direction for decades. No, not under the “Marxist” label, or any of those other nasty words of yesteryear, like “socialism” or “communism” or “collectivism.” They’ve all been carefully replaced by warm-and-cuddly terms like “fairness,” “economic justice,” “redistribution,” “progressivism” and – as an off-script Obama famously told Joe the Plumber – “spread[ing] the wealth around.”  Jon-Paul in The Contemplative Thinker. July 2016

Gramsci* famously laid out a strategy for destroying Christianity and Western culture, one that has proven all too successful. Instead of calling for a Communist revolution up front, as in Russia, he said Marxists in the West should take political power last, after a “long march through the institutions” – the schools, the media, even the churches, every institution that could influence the culture. That “long march through the institutions” is what America has experienced, especially since the 1960s. William S. Lind, “Who stole our culture.” 2007 

Who stole our culture?

“Sometime during the last half-century, someone stole our culture. Just 50 years ago, in the 1950s, America was a great place. It was safe. It was decent. Children got good educations in the public schools. Even blue-collar fathers brought home middle-class incomes, so moms could stay home with the kids. Television shows reflected sound, traditional values.

“Where did it all go? How did that America become the sleazy, decadent place we live in today – so different that those who grew up prior to the ’60s feel like it’s a foreign country? Did it just “happen”?

“It didn’t just “happen.” In fact, a deliberate agenda was followed to steal our culture and leave a new and very different one in its place. The story of how and why is one of the most important parts of our nation’s history – and it is a story almost no one knows. The people behind it wanted it that way.

“What happened, in short, is that America’s traditional culture, which had grown up over generations from our Western, Judeo-Christian roots, was swept aside by an ideology. We know that ideology best as “political correctness” or “multi-culturalism.” It really is cultural Marxism, Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms in an effort that goes back not to the 1960s, but to World War I. Incredible as it may seem, just as the old economic Marxism of the Soviet Union has faded away, a new cultural Marxism has become the ruling ideology of America’s elites. The No. 1 goal of that cultural Marxism, since its creation, has been the destruction of Western culture and the Christian religion.”  William S. Lind

“It is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. Are you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.”

Hermann Goering as quoted in Gustave Gilbert, Nuremberg Diary, p.278.

The attack this time is ‘global warming/climate change,’ brought to us by the Club of Rome: “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming. Water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…All of these dangers are caused by human intervention…the real enemy then, is humanity.” We are the problem according to the global elites and the only way to correct the problem is for us to disappear.

‘Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed, will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten.’ George Orwell 1984, p. 67

‘By 2050—earlier, probably—all real knowledge of Oldspeak will have disappeared. The whole literature of the past will have been destroyed. Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Byron—they’ll exist only in Newspeak versions, not merely changed into something different, but actually changed into something contradictory of what they used to be. Even the literature of the Party will change. Even the slogans will change. How could you have a slogan like ‘freedom is slavery’ when the concept of freedom has been abolished? The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking—not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.’ Orwell, p.68

“Thoughts and ideas are not phantoms. They are real things. Although intangible and immaterial, they are factors in bringing about changes in the realm of tangible and material things. They are generated by some unknown process going on in a human being’s body and can be perceived only by the same kind of process going on in the bod of their author or in other human beings’ bodies.” Theory and History, Ludwig von Mises. p. 96

Dialectical Materialism as taught by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels is the most popular metaphysical doctrine of our age. It is today the official philosophy of the Soviet empire and of all the schools of Marxism outside of this empire. It dominates the ideas of many people who do not consider themselves Marxian and even if many authors and parties who believe they are anti-Marxians and and anti-Communist. It is this doctrine which most of our contemporaries have in mind when they refer to materialism and determinism. von Mises, p.102

It is useless to enter into a discussion about the merits and demerits of a definite brand of philosophy of history. A philosophy of history has to be accepted as a whole or rejected as a whole. No logical arguments and no reference to facts can be advanced either for or against a philosophy of history. There is no question of reasoning about it; what matters is solely believe or disbelief. It is possible that in a few years the entire earth will be subject to socialism. If this occurs, it will by no means confirm the Marxian variety of philosophy of history. Socialism will not be the outcome of a law operating “independently of the will of men” with “the inexorability of a law of nature.” It will be precisely the outcome of the ideas that got into the heads of men, of the conviction shared by the majority that socialism will be more beneficial to them than capitalism.

A philosophical interpretation of history can be misused for political propaganda. However, it is easy to separate the scientific core of the doctrine from its political adaptation and modification. . . . Marx and all those who sympathize with his doctrines have been aware than an economic analysis of socialism will show the fallacy of the pro-socialist arguments. The Marxists clinging to historical materialism and stubbornly refused to listen to its critics because they want socialism for emotional reasons. von Mises p. 324

cultural marxism

The gradual process of destroying all traditions, languages, religions, individuality, government, family, law and order in order to re-assemble society in the future as a communist utopia. This utopia will have no notion of gender, traditions, morality, god or even family or the state. The Philosophy was proven not to Work already by Vladimir Lenin as he tried in vein to control and subjugate the people. He admitted before he died that capitalism was the only true system in which people understand how to live with each other…. Lenin knew that there were a few western Idiots who kept spreading the communist ideas long after Lenin gave up…. he called these people useful idiots as they had more emotion than brains and could be used to subvert the western states for a military takeover in the future as the citizens would already be perverted and sick and weak from poisonous ideas, decadent lusts and mindless entertainment.

In The Death of the West, Buchanan says: “Political Correctness is Cultural Marxism, a regime to punish dissent and to stigmatize social heresy as the Inquisition punished religious heresy. Its trademark is intolerance.”

“Through Socialists of many nationalities accredited to the United Nations, COMISCO aided the International Organization of Socialist Youth in obtaining consultive status on various inter-governmental bodies. These included UNESCO and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, represented by Gunnar Myrdal and Walt Whitman Rostow, Young Socialists, who were not always in their first youth, were pledged to work for a new world order ”to replace capitalism by a system in which the public interest takes precedence over the interests of private profit.” The Students’ League for Industrial Democracy, whose adult board included leading members of ADA, was officially listed in 1956-57 as belonging to the International Organization of Socialist Youth.

”Formal rebirth of the Socialist International occurred at the Frankfurt Congress of 1951, after which a permanent headquarters was established in London. At that Congress the term ”Social Democracy” was made interchangeable with ”Democratic Socialism,” a distinction without a difference. A second Congress held in October of the same year at Milan issued a Declaration of Socialist Policy for Underdeveloped Territories ––whose effects are still evident today in the policies of the United Nations and the foreign aid policies of the United States. After explaining that technical and financial aid must be tendered in such a way as to avoid embarrassing the recipient governments or committing them to anything whatsoever, the International declared coolly: ”It is the primary task of Socialists [in the developed countries] to create a public opinion favorable to active participation in a program of assistance to underdeveloped countries, even if this is effort should entail sacrifices from the people of the more advanced countries.” Both as publicists and public officials ADA supporters have been intensely active in promoting long-term aid ”without strings” to newly constituted governments of backward nations, some barely emerged from cannibalism.” Martin, pp. 378-9

“Other articles by ADA keynoters continued to appear in official British Fabian publications, never known to give space to any writer not affiliated in some way with the international Socialist movement. In May, 1954, Fabian International Review published “Eisenhower and Foreign Policy,” by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., then the national co-chairman of ADA. Fabian News for the same month advertised it as an ‘important article,” a clear hint that all members of the Society should read it. The article was important for non-Fabians, too, because it announced with a candor quite unlike ADA’s more guarded pronouncements at home, the intention of Left liberals to gain control over both the foreign and military policies of the United States.” Martin, p.384

What’s Actually In The Final Draft Of UN’s ‘New Urban Agenda’

“Nobody that lives in or near any city can stay ignorant on what will be drafted by the UN in Quito, Ecuador next month. This will be bigger than 2030 Agenda. ⁃ TN Editor”
