Common Core and Agenda 21: producing green global serfs.
As the Obama administration, the United Nations, and other forces seek to finalize the decades-old effort to nationalize -- and even globalize -- education by bribing state governments to impose the Common Core national education standards, one of the key agendas behind the standards has been largely overlooked. In essence, official UN documents and statements by top administration officials reveal a plan to transform American children, and students around the globe, into what globalists refer to as "global citizens," ready for the coming "green" and "sustainable" world order.
In recent years especially, UN reports and top world leaders have been openly boasting of their globalist plot to create a top-down, planned, and regimented society that is completely at odds with the U.S. Constitution, national sovereignty, individual liberty, God-given rights, Judeo-Christian values, and Western traditions. To prepare humanity for their vision, however, requires a new form of "education," globalists admit. UNESCO calls it "Education for Sustainable Development."
So what will children learn in the "green" world order? In a 2010 speech at a "Sustainability Summit," Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan offered more than a few hints. Openly proclaiming the administration's loyalty to the globalist UN "sustainability" agenda, Duncan boasted of how the U.S. government is foisting it all on American children via the Common Core national standards and a wide range of related federal and international programs.
In fact, he said, the U.S. Department of Education "is taking a leadership role in the work of educating the next generation of green citizens and preparing them to contribute to the workforce through green jobs." As Duncan made clear, central planners will determine what jobs citizens will have, and central planners will train them accordingly.
With the ongoing globalization of education under UN and Obama administration guidance, Americans are at a crossroads. One alternative is putting a stop to it all now, withdrawing from Common Core, rejecting unconstitutional federal bribes and mandates, and restoring proper education to promote a well-educated citizenry capable of critical thinking and maintaining liberty. The other option, as globalist voices have made clear, is a "green" economy -- and everything that radical vision entails.
