    Default John Podesta helping UN develop radical new global agenda

    John Podesta, the former Clinton Administration chief of staff who is spearheading President Barack Obama’s aggressive strategy of government-by-regulation, has also been helping United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon with an even more ambitious job: setting the stage to radically transform the world’s economic, environmental and social agenda.

    That effort—a colossal and sweeping form of global behavior modification--is supposed to get a new kick-start at a special U.N. summit of world leaders to be convened by Ban in New York City on September 25.

    Its supporters hope that effort will end next year in a new international treaty that will bind all 193 U.N. members-- including the U.S-- to a still formless “universal sustainable development agenda” for the planet that will take effect in 2020.

    Developing a single, sustainable development agenda is critical,” says a report produced in May, 2013 by a 27-member “High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons” hand-picked by Ban to help focus the discussion and frame the effort required to make the huge and lengthy project a success.

    The high-level panel report was chaired by British Prime Minister David Cameron and the presidents of Indonesia and Liberia. The sole American among the international luminaries, who spent nearly a year at their efforts and endorsed them through a process of consensus, was Podesta.

    The question is, critical to what? And the answer, according to that panel, is pretty much everything, in what it called a series of “big, transformative shifts.”

    Their report opens with the challenge to end “extreme poverty, in all its forms;” and declares, “We can be the first generation in human history to end hunger and ensure that every person achieves a basic standard of wellbeing. But it then adds: “ending extreme poverty is just the beginning, not the end.”

    The new agenda is also intended to bring “a new sense of global partnership into national and international politics”; must cause the world to “act now to halt the alarming pace of climate change and environmental degradation;” and bring about a “rapid shift to sustainable patterns of consumption and production,” to name just a few things itemized in the document.

    Moreover, it apparently also must spark a planetary psychological sea-change: “The new global partnership should encourage everyone to alter their worldview, profoundly and dramatically,” the report declares.

    i didn't read anything in that article that was all that concerning. The devil might be in the details but they seem like pretty noble goals. Ending extreme poverty seems like something we should all be in favour of, ensuring nations don't pollute the shit out of the envirornment seems like a good idea.

    If they want to raise the poorest of the poor while at the same time making energy more expensive, I wish them good luck.

    The most effective way to address poverty is getting less and less popular, so why bother mentioning it.

    IMO governments, combined as the UN, will not be able to accomplish any of this.

    I think the UN is basically a useless orgnization for the most part but the only way for poverty in the 3rd world to be addressed (and I'm not holding my breath) is by the co-operation of governments around the world. It's a noble goal.
