The Fundamental Message of the Earth Charter
Woodwardon goes on to explain, “The Earth Charter is around 2400 words long and contains sixteen principles. The preamble states that the world is becoming “increasingly interdependent and fragile” and calls for a “sustainable global society.” It states that the dominant patterns of production and consumption are causing “environmental devastation” and warns about overpopulation, the widening gap between rich and poor, the extinction of species and depletion of the world’s resources.
It goes on to call for the emergence of a ‘global civil society’ and states that “our environmental, economic, political, social, and spiritual challenges are interconnected.”
The underlying philosophy of the Charter is a pagan one, whereby Mother Earth and nature are to be worshiped, and as such it opposes the Judeo-Christian belief that God is separate from his creation and man has dominion over the Earth,” says Woodwardon.
This is the exact philosophy behind the purpose of Agenda 21, and in fact, the documents go hand in hand, much like the American Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are inseparable as our nation’s founding documents. One, the Declaration, provides the philosophy behind the nation, the other, the Constitution, outline the way it is to be implemented. So too are the Earth Charter and Agenda 21. One, the Earth Charter, describes the philosophy, and Agenda 21 describes how is will be achieved,” points out Woodwardon..
Your local officials say, we aren’t imposing international policy – it’s all local. Well, consider the third document in this effort to connect the dots. This is taken from the government website of the state of Washington, Department of the Ecology. In reading it (available on the state’s official website http://www.ecy.wa.gov/Sustainability/) notice:
First in paragraph 3, it quotes “Our Common Future.” This was the special report from the Brundtland Commission This was the 1987 UN Commission on Environmental and Development, chaired by Gro Harlem Brundland, Vice President of the World Socialist Party. In that report the term Sustainable Development was first coined. And the report was the precursor to Agenda 21 and the Earth Charter.

describes the Earth Charter as a “reference document.” In other words, the
Earth Charter is being used by the government of the state of Washington as a guideline for state
environmental and development policy. Washington
