Agenda 21 | [Glenn Beck]

Agenda 21

Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known.

Publisher's Summary

Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom.

There are only the Authorities.

Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life.

Those who cannot do either are of no use to society.

This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known. She dutifully walks her energy board daily and accepts all male pairings assigned to her by the Authorities. Like most citizens, she keeps her head down and her eyes closed.

Until the day they came for her mother.

Woken up to the harsh reality of her life and her family's future inside the Republic, Emmeline begins to search for the truth. Why are all citizens confined to ubiquitous concrete living spaces? Why are Compounds guarded by Gatekeepers who track all movements? Why are food, water and energy rationed so strictly? And, most important, why are babies taken from their mothers at birth?

As Emmeline begins to understand the true objectives of Agenda 21, she realizes that she is up against far more than she ever thought. With the Authorities closing in, and nowhere to run, Emmeline embarks on an audacious plan to save her family and expose the Republic - but is she already too late?

    I am an artist, living in Cairns, Queensland, Australia right next to the Great Barrier Reef. I listen to audiobooks everyday while making art and on into the night. I really like mysteries with a good serving of suspense on the side that keep you wondering right to the end. However, I won't say no to any entertaining and well written book which has been read by an excellent narrator.

    Story
    "ridiculously far-fetched"

    about as believable as going to heaven or hell. This writer and his ilk are really paranoid to the extreme. They must have very miserable lives.....
    Trying to make one a true believer through fiction is an old trick. This book, however, is not even a good story, nor is it well written or narrated. See for yourself, if you like, but I would not waste a credit.

    Story
    "A Riveting Story!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you like scary stories of hellish futures that are all too plausible, I highly recommend Agenda 21. When moral values decline both individually and collectively, levels of suggestibility increase to unbelievably high levels, resulting in dictatorship of one form or another. The world of Agenda 21 is a vision of earthly Hell that is a mix between a totalitarian state blended with environmental extremism and animal rights gone mad. If you don't think something like this is plausible, simply take a look at real world accounts of life under totalitarian dictatorships of various kinds and then substitute the Agenda 21 details.


    What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

    January LaVoy does an excellent job of bringing the book to life.


    Any additional comments?

    Agenda 21 should cause us to redouble our efforts aimed towards moral revival as individuals and as a society. There is NO political solution to the human condition. Only genuine morals demonstrate any hope of change. Otherwise we are headed for a 21st Century dark age, enforced by technology. Without genuine moral values human beings are simply programmable, reproducible, vicious animals that give the word "animal" a bad name.

    Story
    "Is there really an Agenda...?"

    the 1984 of today's literature...
    Set in the future... but not far enough.
    A Fiction Novel... at least for now.

    This book paints a picture that can't be imagined... and shouldn't.

    There is a reason that Hitler came to power... by the will of his people.
    There is a reason that President Obama is in charge of the US now.
    There is a reason that gun sales have increased... and that taxes are placed on ammo.

    Read this book as soon as you can... and share it with a friend.

    Story
    "1984 for 21st Century America"
    What did you love best about Agenda 21?

    The best part of this book is the afterword. In this section Beck gives a brief history of the all-too-real United Nations action plan called Agenda 21. In the afterword Beck traces the evolution of what would eventually become Agenda 21 from the early 1970's through its present day implementation by local governments across the US. Beck also connects specific initiaves and goals from Agenda 21, citing chapter and verse from the action plan, with elements with the seemingly far-fetched elements of the story. Reading the novel by itself, a person who does not immerse themselves in the strange goings-on of the leftist environmental crusaders at the United Nations would never for a second think that this story was based on anything other than the author's vivid (and possibly warped) imagination. Unfortunately, the thing that makes this 1984-goes-green novel come to life is the afterword, which points the reader to the theories and documents in which it is grounded.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Glenn Beck? Why or why not?

    I would most definetly listen to more books from Glenn Beck. With Glenn Beck you know what you are getting - a right-wing conservative who opposes socialism and champions capitalism. He is quite upfront regarding who he is ideologically, and what his purpose is. Knowing that, one is able to focus what Beck says and writes through the prizm of his conservatism, doing appropriate research to determine whether or not questionable things that Beck says, which challenge the reader's paradigm, are true. One may not always agree with Beck's ideas or assertions, but one cannot say that he is not documented in all he writes, or that he does not do his research. This type of transparency is refreshing in the media, when so many journalists and pundits claim to be "fair and balanced", or "perfectly impartial observers", when, in fact, they all have their own biased presuppositions.


    What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    January LaVoy's narration was expressive and her voice was pleasant. While the production was not dramatized, neither was it simply a sterile reading of text. LaVoy was intuitive in her performance, and her use of emotion was appropriate.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This book reminded me a lot of Orwell's 1984, in that no real mention is made of how the world reached its dystopian state. Also, the indispensable afterword was, to me, reminicent of the Brotherhood's Manifesto, which is featured prominently in 1984. I would have liked for the author to have spent a little more time explaining how the changes from the "before time" happened to bring society to its present place. Without more of that transition explanation, I'm not sure the connection between the setting of the novel (the societal make-up and organization of the Republic) and Agenda 21 would be as clear as it could be to someone who is only casually interested in these issues, or politics in general. At any rate, it is imperative to dig in to the actual UN Agenda 21, which is readily available on the internet. Only after doing so will the truly terrifying nature of this work be driven home to the reader.

    "Please don't let this happen to us"

    As a work of literature, I must say Glenn's story is an improvement over his previous fiction. As a comment on what could happen to us if we don't do more to guard our freedom, it is terrifying. Everyone should read this book with an open mind. Don't close off and say it could never happen here. Yes it could. It is, in the end, up to us.

    "Was different then i expected"

    What did you like best about this story?

    Made you do some deep thoughts about how good we have it now.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    not necessary

    Story
    "Modern Day 1984 Where Government Takes Over All"
    What did you love best about Agenda 21?

    The perspective of a child who had a taste of freedom and couldn't understand why people could accept an oppressive system where no one was allowed to be a unique individual.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The escape from tyranny to freedom.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Burning down the establishment as a diversion to escape to freedom.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Where the little boy saw his first glimpse of freedom by the breaking of a rule.


    Any additional comments?

    The power our government officials have now never seems to be enough as they want to control every aspect of our lives. Every American should read this book as it emphasizes how it will look like in the future if we continue to let our freedom to be taken away without objection.
