The concept of 'capacity building' pervades UN Agenda 21's 300 pages but out in the world the NGO-driven pretense of developing local economies is masking the real goal: destroy independence and eliminate competition for global corporations.
Here is just one example of methods used to destroy independence and small business:
My last post, The Gap Year, mentions that upper and middle class US students working with non-governmental organizations are sent to lesser developed countries (LDC's) in order to 'teach' the poor about micro-finance. In passing you'll note that these high school students have no experience with or specialized information about micro-finance and are themselves financed by parents paying between $10,000 and $45,000 for their third world vacation. In the post-UN Agenda 21 world, sending high school students to 'teach' the poor how to be successful is really about teaching the high school students how to be poor and find it virtuous in the face of their tremendous first-world shame.
What is micro-finance and what is it doing to the poor of the world? Touted as a way to 'empower the poor, women, youth, minorities, indigenous, under-represented etc', micro-finance is extremely popular with non-profit groups acting as the lowest level of bureaucracy of first world governments. These NGOs act to covertly implement foreign policy and the policy of UN Agenda 21. Micro-finance provides small loans directly to small, often one person businesses in order to assist them in getting started. A charming proposal, but what is the reality?
A February 23, 2014 article in the New York Times and this article in the Business Insider detail just a few of the stories that have filled the news over the last five years. All tell of the miserable struggles that rural Indians are facing through small loan defaults. Debt and spiraling interest payments drive these inexperienced borrowers to suicide. In a horrific nod to the feudal era, the families of the borrowers in India, Cambodia, Kenya, Uganda and other countries are responsible for their family-members' debts. Known in pre-twentieth century England as 'entailments,' generational debts are still a devastating crippler of the future across the world. Early American law did away with the entail and ended the practice of chaining future generations to the debt of their ancestors. Present-day micro-finance, pushed by UN Agenda 21 change agents viewing themselves as the saviors of the poor, are destroying fledgling businesses and families across the developing world for generations. Children are born with personal debt---debt that must be paid. For some people suicide seems like the only answer to the tremendous stress in rural areas. According to the NYT article, "the suicide rate for farmers is nearly three times the national average...with global competition and rising costs cutting into their lean profits, their ranks are dwindling."
Yes, small businesses, farmers in rural India, are trying to compete on the global stage and are falling victim to the true goals of UN Agenda 21.
EXPOSE UN AGENDA 21. SPEAK OUT. RESIST.
