WARRENTON, Va., July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In Tom DeWeese's new book, Sustainable! The WAR on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals, the recognized expert on private property rights describes in detail the process being used at every level of government to reorganize U.S. society through the destruction of private property.
According to DeWeese, the American system of free enterprise, private property ownership and individual liberty is under attack by a political force that, while out in the open for all to see, is little understood and mostly ignored. Yet, he says, private, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), city planners and federal agencies have teamed up specifically to change society under the banner of sustainable development. "This movement is gaining power in every state, county, and community under the false threat of Environmental Armageddon, demanding that we completely reorganize our economic system, our representative form of government, and our individual lifestyle," DeWeese says.
While couched in positive-sounding language, in reality, sustainable policy imposes massive government regulations enforced through state and local governments, DeWeese notes. He adds, "These policies place severe restrictions on energy and water use. Development schemes seek to ban the use of cars, instead forcing ridership on massively expensive and inconvenient public transportation systems. Meanwhile, so-called Visioning programs follow enforcement of international policies to reorganize communities into a one-size-fits-all straightjacket."
In Sustainable, DeWeese makes the case that such policies are a war on free enterprise, private property ownership, and individual choice. He discusses:
- Why private property matters
- The only real solution to eradicating poverty
- The lost definition of property rights
- 10 real questions city planners should be asking the public
- 10 vital questions to ask before signing a conservation easement
- 10 facts every community needs to know about regional plans
- Who takes the "Walk of Shame" in the destruction of property rights?
- How to restore private property rights
