Default I walked into a bookstore and picked up the most bizarre novel ever...

Not sure if anyone here has seen this, maybe some of our conservative members...but apparently Glenn Beck writes fiction

So at first I'm like...cool, maybe this political maniac has a creative side to him away from politics...then I read the synopsis



Quote:
http://www.amazon.com/Agenda-21-Glen...ords=agenda+21

“I was just a baby when we were relocated and I don’t remember much. Everybody has that black hole at the beginning of their life. That time you can’t remember. Your first step. Your first taste of table food. My real memories begin in our assigned living area in Compound 14.”
Just a generation ago, this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of a UN-led 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 eighteen-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 come for her mother.

“You save what you think you’re going to lose.”

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?

This is hilarious. Is there a liberal version of something like this? I mean, it's straight up conservative propaganda being used in a novel. Even up to the typical hate for the U.N.

It's funny that an author could write something similar that's totally non-political but the synopsis is really like actual conservative thinking

If it were nothing to be concerned about... then why would AZ do this?

Arizona Senate OKs bill rejecting UN declaration on environment

http://tucson.com/news/local/govt-an...2be4d8194.html

Quote:
PHOENIX - Fearing international intrusion into Arizona's affairs, the Senate voted Wednesday to make it illegal for state and local governments to recognize the United Nations or any of its declarations as legal authority here.

While some lawmakers have always been suspicious of the U.N., the focus of this measure is that organization's Rio Declaration, adopted in 1992, which deals with issues of environment and development. Sen. Judy Burges, R-Sun City West, said the key to her SB 1403 is ensuring that decisions and policies adopted by the international body that are contrary to federal and state law are not adopted here.

"The only thing that would be prohibited under my bill is if it's unconstitutional," she said.

"It asks the people to stand up and to support those things that support the Constitution, which is the guiding principles of this country," Burges continued. "The Constitution is what has protected us against an overreaching government all of these years."
