...and other forces seek to finalize the decades-old effort to nationalize - and even globalize - education by bribing and bludgeoning state governments to impose Common Core, one of the key agendas behind the deeply controversial 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.
A major component of the scheme surrounds so-called "sustainability" and a radical UN program known as Agenda 21 encompassing virtually every facet of life.
To prepare humanity for their vision, however, requires a new form of "education," globalists admit. UNESCO calls it "Education for Sustainable Development."
On its website, UNESCO, the self-styled global education agency, actually boasts of its plans.
Before the term "sustainability" was in vogue, the late UN Deputy Secretary General Robert Muller, the architect of UNESCO's "World Core Curriculum," also offered some insight into the purpose of UN-led, globalized pseudo-education.
Put another way, smash individualism and notions of individual rights, replacing them with collectivism.
Meanwhile, actually educating children in the traditional sense - teaching them reading, writing, critical thinking, math, real history, actual science, and more - is on its way out, as globalists openly admit in official documents and all across UN websites.
In its place,
...and other powerful globalist forces are working quietly but fiendishly to impose global education standards on humanity.
Among other schemes is a UN plot known as the "World Core Curriculum" that has been in the works for decades.
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 boasts 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,
Obama's former "Green Jobs" Czar, Van Jones, of course, was eventually forced to resign after his own words exposed him as a self-described "communist."
The notion of a centrally planned, UN-directed "green" economy and "green" world order, however, never went anywhere. As Duncan makes clear, central planners will determine what jobs citizens will have, and central planners will train them accordingly.
Of course, the unconstitutional federal education bureaucracy is not alone in the plot to transform America's youth, Duncan continued, pointing to numerous other U.S. agencies and departments that,
In the United States, like the imposition of Common Core on state governments, Duncan explained that much of the federal effort to indoctrinate young Americans into the "sustainable development" agenda is being funded by the so-called "stimulus" plan.
At the global level,
...and more are all involved in harmonizing and globalizing education as well.
As Duncan made clear in a separate 2010 speech to UNESCO, the Obama administration is fully on board with the planetary schemes as well.
With the Obama administration as well as the nationalization and globalization of education via Common Core, domestic efforts will only intensify as well.
The new "green" world order will be imposed using federal power over schools, Duncan re-iterated in the speech.
The language may sound innocent enough to those who know little or nothing about what globalists mean when they refer to "sustainability" and the "green economy."
After all, taxpayers unwittingly spent many millions of dollars on "focus groups" and "market research" to help the schemers conceal the true agenda by identifying language and terms that the public would be most likely to embrace.
But what exactly is it that Duncan, UNESCO, Common Core, and the Obama administration admit they are training your children to participate in?
In essence, according to UN documents and reports, the idea is to re-structure human civilization into a centrally planned global society under the control of international institutions such as the UN - all under the guise of "sustainable development."
In fact, they say so themselves in countless reports and documents; even though, ironically enough, central planning has always and everywhere produced environmental devastation in addition to human misery.
Official UN documents show, for example, that under the "green economy" banner, literally everything about human existence must dramatically change:
...and much more.
A more recent UN report, developed with help from Obama policy architect John Podesta, noted that the "worldview and behavior" of every person on Earth must be "dramatically altered."
On the other hand,
...and more must all be pushed aside.
To that end, Duncan continued in his speech at the "Sustainability Summit," the Obama administration is working to,
While the Common Core standards and related establishment schemes are solidifying that in the United States, the same phenomenon is taking place at break-neck speed around the world.
At the 2012 UN "Conference on Sustainable Development" in Rio, for instance - chaired by an anti-American Chinese Communist - virtually every national government on Earth committed to do what Duncan described in the countries they rule.
The "we," of course, refers to the legions of bureaucrats, dictators, presidents, and mass-murderers at the UN sustainability summit - not the public.
Traditional and classical notions of education, however, have no place in the sustainable "green" world order.
In a stunning admission posted directly on UNESCO's website in a document about the agency's "Education for Sustainable Development" machinations, the outfit makes that abundantly clear.
Read that sentence again, and again:
Lest there be any doubt about the purpose of Common Core, the broader globalist vision for education, and the fact that it has been burrowing its way into U.S. schools for decades, consider a 1989 speech given to the federally funded National Governor's Association - the unaccountable D.C.-based trade group that helped develop and impose Common Core on America - by a prominent player in the "reform" movement under contract with the U.S. Department of Education.
Dr. Shirley McCune, who also worked with the National Education Association, the U.S. Department of Education, and more, was not shy about sharing the long-term agenda with the nation's governors.
Some two decades after that speech, following a long series of federal and international programs to pave the way, Common Core was officially born.
It was developed by establishment forces infamous for openly advocating the nationalization of schooling, with funding from prominent globalists, and using federal bribes to foist it on states.
So far, some 45 state governments have imposed the poor-quality national standards in exchange for "stimulus"-funded bribes and threats.
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.
