For the bolded, I already mentioned it. I don't see anyone making real strides towards environmental sustainability besides some lip service to renewable energy. I don't see anyone in power trying to solve the wage gap. Women, minorities, and indigenous people are routinely and consistently left out or ignored when it comes to ANY kind of policy making. I'm curious about what you've seen that's being implemented?
I also don't see what would be wrong if these things WERE being put into action. There's nothing in the Rio Declaration or the sustaining forest thing (which is all I took the time to read) that I find problematic, in fact, these are the kinds of things I would love to see countries adopting. I'm all about the environment and income equality.
My ex did connect the two, but he also believed in every conspiracy theory ever in the history of the world. I haven't looked into it a whole lot, but from what I can tell it's a very silly belief held by overly paranoid people.
As far as believing in EVERY conspiracy theory ever, I will agree that is for overly paranoid people. I do believe in SOME conspiracy theories, but I think that a lot of people draw conclusions about one thing, and then another, and the think they can put all the pieces of the puzzle into place. There are some pieces that I think fit, and others that do not.
As far as THIS document in particular goes, I've only HEARD about some of the things in it, so it's pure speculation at this point. I too am in favor of "sustainable development" however from what I've HEARD the document's definition of this is far different than what you and me would think of when we hear the words, "sustainable development"
Like I said, I don't know what the document actually says, because I haven't read it yet, but I have reason to believe that the document is being implemented because I've seen evidence that supports that it's being implemented....
from the wikipedia page alone, you can see that it is not a law, as you stated, but it can, and has been implemented voluntarily.
from the UN's own documents, implementation plans
just a few more sites with some interesting information
The main problem that I see with the document (and again I emphasize, I still have only read small parts of it) is that it's been implemented without ever being brought before Congress.
