The Critical Linkages: Bay Area And Beyond Project

Con­ser­va­tion Lands Net­work: Cal­i­for­nia is now sub­ject­ed to cen­tral­ized land use con­trol. (AB32 SB375 SB1 and oth­er Sacra­men­to and NGO ini­tia­tives.) The envi­ron­ment is usu­al­ly the excuse. Pri­vate prop­er­ty is under mas­sive attack and the prop­er­ty own­ers are being set up to lose.

Reflexive Law: How Sustainable Development Has Conned Us All

The New York Times blast­ed out the head­line yes­terday, Oba­ma Pur­suing Cli­mate Accord in Lieu of Treaty. In short, Oba­ma will use one or more Exec­u­tive Orders to entan­gle the U.S. in a glob­al treaty on cli­mate change, with­out con­sulting the U.S. Sen­ate. How­ever, the Con­sti­tu­tion requires the Sen­ate to vote on all treaties and […]

Imaging the Past to Experience and Reshape the Present More Fully: APUSH as Social Science

I tend to come at the same issues from a dif­fer­ent approach in part because I usu­al­ly pick up on all the terms that have qui­et­ly acquired a non-dic­­tio­­nary mean­ing.

The Global Strategy

Each point of light on that map rep­re­sents a pop­u­la­tion cen­ter. For glob­al­ists, man­age­ment of globe is sim­ply an engi­neer­ing prob­lem. Nation-states, bor­ders, his­to­ry, cul­ture are all incon­ve­niences to the effi­cient (and prof­itable) oper­a­tion of the plan­et. When glob­al cen­tral plan­ners look at that map, they are look­ing at the require­ments to con­nect the points […]

Com­mu­ni­ty Edu­ca­tion was admit­ted to be the Chi­nese Com­mu­nist Sys­tem at a Com­mu­ni­ty Edu­ca­tion Con­fer­ence in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. in 1976. Amer­i­cans con­cerned over Agen­da 21, ICLEI, region­al gov­ern­ment (Com­mu­nist unelect­ed coun­cil form of gov­ern­ment) and many oth­er Unit­ed Nation­s/­­glob­al-ori­en­t­ed pro­grams may have over­looked a very impor­tant inter­na­tion­al com­po­nent, if not the enti­ty, which may have […]
