Your nourishment and water are carefully rationed and given only at designated times. The color of your uniform identifies your occupation. No you are not in prison, but rather the citizen of an all-powerful Republic that has replaced what was once the United States. Every action is strictly monitored and recorded by the Authority.
Citizens consume less than what they produce, receiving equal rations of nourishment and water each day. House, church, Bible, God, and Jesus are all words of the past, what matters now is what is, and what is, is subject to the requirements of the Republic.
The United States and its traditional pledge of allegiance have been replaced with a new Republic and the following pledge:. It is an easy read, written at a middle-school or high-school level. Chapters are no more than five pages long, with one as short as a page and a half.
The brevity of the chapter divisions make it easy for one to read a chapter or two, even when pressed for time. The book is pages, but the actual novel itself ends on page The remainder is an afterword written by Glenn Beck himself.
Parke is a registered nurse who specializes in emergency nursing and Emergency Department management, according to her brief biography in the back inside flap of the book. After hearing about the program and the possible ramifications of its implementation, she did her own research and decided to write about it in the best way she knew how, short stories and fiction. I'm saddened to learn about the many cities that are adopting language from this proposal on their own, especially in being duped into thinking they are helping the earth.
They are just making the path to the loss of sovereignty as a nation easier, as other greedy and jealous nations try to take what we have developed for themselves and undermine our Constitution.

The majority of reviews I've seen for this book fall in one of the following categories: I don't care about any of that as this is a BOOK review and I thought it was one of the best books I've read this year.
This was a fast paced easy read and that would probably be my only mark down on this book as I wanted more of it when I got to the end. I'm holding out hope that Harriet Parke fo The majority of reviews I've seen for this book fall in one of the following categories: I'm holding out hope that Harriet Parke follows this up with another to continue the story.
While this does deal with the extremes of actual documented ideas presented by the United Nations Agenda 21, I could easily see how this could come about. A few changes to laws here, a few more changes there and before you know it, all the power has been given away. And I can easily see people going along with an idea that is presented to them that they won't have to worry about making ends meet or getting ahead as long as they feel comfortable that their needs will be met and they won't have to work as hard as they currently do.
I'm sure a large number would go right along with it before they realized what they'd done. As the book states, the ideas presented are at the extreme ends of what could happen, but who wants to read a book where things are only mildly messed up? How entertaining would that have been?
A great novel that would make a great series that also holds the potential of educating the public on a potentially dangerous idea held within the United Nations, presented in an entertaining way.
I highly recommend you read it. Dec 13, Kathy rated it really liked it. Agenda 21 is a quick read, but it stays with you as your mind ponders the "what if For those not a fan of Glenn Beck, he wrote the book with Harriet Parke and it should not be an obstacle to reading the book.
There is no party or political specifics contained in the story. The book reads like a young adult book rather than contemporary fiction. That should not be a detriment either to reading Agenda It reminded me of Hunger Games, also a book that delves into the question, "wha Agenda 21 is a quick read, but it stays with you as your mind ponders the "what if It reminded me of Hunger Games, also a book that delves into the question, "what happens when government gets too big and has too much power".
The book takes place in a government compound. Life as we know it, ended a generation ago. There is no money, one cannot buy anything.
Everything you "need" is handed to you. The compound is gated and there is no escape. The story is centered around one family, with the major protagonist being a young girl named Emmeline. Her life as a child and as she grows what is expected of her from the "authority'. Agenda 21 is the name of the novel, but also a real U. There is an afterward in the book, totally separate from the story that explains what Agenda 21 is.
Starting with local governments to restrict land growth and ownership, enforce sustainable development If sounds far fetched, try installing a new toilet in the state of New Jersey, only smaller, water conserving toilets are permitted The use of precautionary approach is the most frightening If you do not think that governments have the power to control you or that governments only want the best for its citizens, remember it has happened before Mar 24, Kristine rated it did not like it Shelves: I will not read another Glenn Beck book that my mother or father in law pushes on me.
This one is worse than the last one. So I'm a moderate conservative. And one thing I have no patience for is people who think the other side is all evil and your side is all good. Each side is a mixed bag, and I struggle to decide every election and end up voting R because I'm a fiscal conservative and social libertarian. So this book takes some leftist principals and pushes them to the utmost extreme.
Ya know what, I could probably write a dystopian novel that takes some rightist principals and push them to such an extreme that the the book would be more of a nightmare than this darn thing. I'm not the biggest fan of the UN either but sheesh.
Flattest characters, most predictable plot in the world, and no exploration of meaning. Brick, meet head. Shoot me. Educate yourselves, Beck-heads. Feb 24, Natalie rated it liked it. I enjoyed the book. I thought Harriet Parke's Agenda 21 revealed the worst imaginable outcome for the green movement. I still enjoyed the book. Her dystopian world was clever and the remnant articles from the past really seemed to hit a nerve and I felt that was the most genuine part of the book where she hid certain things her mother had given her.
There were a few areas w I enjoyed the book. There were a few areas where I could see it should have been edited more to give a more flushed out end product. I only gave it three stars because the plot arc fell flat toward the end.
The tension at the end felt contrived, the protagonists motives were not carefully built enough. She had good ideas for how we might be oppressed in the future if evil people who only cared about recycling decided to oppress the United States.
Her book was the last dystopian fiction I want to read for awhile, I think I am over it. Right now it seems like many people are asleep to the dangers of our politicians and legislation, but Glenn Beck who I love to listen to, usually over-promises and under-delivers and I think he did with Agenda He could have said it was a good book not it was a mindblowing best book you will ever read. HIs job is to hype his stuff though so of course he over-hyped it.
I think she did a great job for a first novel, I am happy for her success, and glad Glenn used his name to get the story out there, and I hope she keeps writing!
Dec 12, Leah rated it it was amazing Shelves: Agenda 21 was a very interesting book.
Once I started reading I wasn't able to put it down. Glenn Beck and Harriet Parke did a great job of writing it! It reminded me a little bit of the Hunger Games, but it was better. The way the people in this book were forced to live is horrible. Everyone had a food and water ration. One in the morning and one at night.
If they completed all their required work for the day. The people lived in compounds, and they had to do everything the authorities said. If they disobeyed the authorities they were either beaten or taken away, never to be seen again.
Everyone had to pledge allegiance to the Republic, the earth, and the animals. Children were kept in the children's village and were taught by the Republic. OK, I'll stop here, I could tell a lot more about the book but I don't want to spoil it I definitely recommend this book to everyone!
It is a great read! And I believe you wont be disappointed by it. Dec 19, Jayda rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone and everyone who wants to be informed on U.
Agenda I don't even really know how to explain this book. It's completely terrifying, when you read it and then read the afterword and realize that, as extreme as this story is, it's completely possible if Agenda 21 were to be passed. Anyway, I've read most of Glenn's other books, but I had either forgotten or didn't realize his talent when it comes to writing fiction.
This story was positively addicting, and easy to read, as well as informative. His description flowed with the dialogue which is sa Wow. His description flowed with the dialogue which is saying a lot considering my dislike of description in novels and the ending I hope that everyone reads this book with an open-mind and without the name of the author in the back of their minds.
It may be written by Glenn Beck, but the information in the afterword has facts that back up what he says, and he admits that this fictional piece is an extreme version of Agenda I HOPE that it will never be passed to this extent, but who knows?
If we don't inform ourselves now then maybe it will. Overall, this novel was very well-written. I'm impressed. Definitely one of my favorites. Jan 07, Terri rated it it was amazing. Although I am not inclined to be a doomsayer nor a conspiracy theorist, I highly recommend that you read this short novel. There are many dystopian novels on the market Divergent, The Hunger Games, The Giver, etc , but Agenda 21 is scarier and more prophetic than any I have yet read. The "unintended consequences" of feel-good notions that alike and equal mean the same thing, the worship of the Earth and its varied species of plants and animals excluding human beings, of course and redistribut Although I am not inclined to be a doomsayer nor a conspiracy theorist, I highly recommend that you read this short novel.
The "unintended consequences" of feel-good notions that alike and equal mean the same thing, the worship of the Earth and its varied species of plants and animals excluding human beings, of course and redistribution of wealth take from those who have and give to those who have not by coercion and force, if necessary for the "greater good" are clearly and frighteningly illustrated in this novel.
As a firm believer in the US Constitution and the ideals expressed in our Declaration of Independence, I see Agenda 21 the UN's plan s well as the outcome of it as expressed in this novel easily becoming our world - a world in which evil is in control and the human spirit crushed to feeble embers. I do not despair, however, for I believe that folk like Emmeline and her David, Elsa, Joan, and John will set those embers afire. Nov 21, Rebecca Skane rated it really liked it Shelves: Read this book because it was penned by Harriet Parke, not Glenn Beck.
Put a piece of black electrical tape over his name.
His actions warrant it. It has Glenn Beck's name on it, but he didn't write it. Harriet Parke is the one who wrote this terrifying dystopia and Beck's team went in and bought the rights.
While Ms. Parke wrote a great piece of fiction which was crafted from her nightmares regarding the real Agenda 21 from the UN, Beck stamped his name on it when he didn't even write one word Read this book because it was penned by Harriet Parke, not Glenn Beck. Parke wrote a great piece of fiction which was crafted from her nightmares regarding the real Agenda 21 from the UN, Beck stamped his name on it when he didn't even write one word to use as a political platform.
His actions disgust me. To put his name above Harriet's on the cover was despicable. It was a crime against writers in general. Regarding the book - this a great piece of fiction by an aspiring new author that has been stained with Beck's own agenda. I'll focus on Harriet's story in my formal review.

I stayed up half the night on a week day when I had to work just to read this. Seriously go read it, now. She has been raised in this community for most of her life and knows of no other way of life, yet she hears stories from her mother about how things used to be. Never very curious about why it all happened, she just listens to the stories and walks her energy board every day like a good Citizen should. That is when things begin to change for Emmeline.
Shortly after her mother is taken away because she is no longer being productive and she is re-paired with another man. It is only then that she starts to question the status quo and worry that her opportunity to learn the truth might have passed. I really liked the way the plot of this book played out. Seems great. It is confining and restricting. Unfortunately for the younger citizens, how do you yearn for freedom when you have never known it?
For Emmeline it is when her daughter is taken from her, which was a heartbreaking moment. The true horrors of this community are never fully explained but alluded to. Everything was so bleak and dark, even the colors of everything in this world. All I will say is that this is so far poised to be my Book of the Year for Read this and other reviews at my blog Stefani's World of Words Dec 26, Emma rated it liked it.
This had me in the first few pages! I absolutely loved the story line. Of course, I'm a huge fan of reading about futuristic dystopian societies. I think Harriet Parke's writing was tasteful, yet powerful - easily creating vivid images.
Even though traditional "Glenn Beck" undertones and pulses were felt throughout, I don't believe it took away from the story. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. It is a quick and easy read - I read it in just under 5 hours.
What I didn't like: The ending to m This had me in the first few pages! The ending to me felt a little rushed; too abrupt. The ending sets us up for a new beginning for the main characters without glimpsing what that might entail. I felt gypped - unrewarded as a reader; it was almost like saying, "And they lived happily ever after. Hope-filled, I read on only to be disappointed that it was an explanation of the book in the form of political rhetoric. I felt duped or tricked as I began to read the afterword because Mr.
Beck tells us that he and Harriet Parke knew that "we" American readers probably wouldn't pick up a piece of non-fiction or a newspaper article on the same subject, and we'd be more likely to read about Agenda 21 if it were presented to us in the form of a fiction novel. He goes on to write that if we liked the story, we should prompt others to read it, hiding the fact that Agenda 21 is a real proposition, with further instruction not to even mention the afterword.
I was offended that Mr. Beck assumes that I am an ignorant person who wouldn't care enough about my society to learn about something like this on my own, and that I have to be tricked into reading about it. Regardless if I agree with you on Agenda 21 or not, Mr. I only skimmed the rest of the afterword, deciding I could read it on the UN's website whenever I wanted, without all of Beck's political repartee.
Personally, I picked up the book to be entertained, and to feel inspired by the thought-provoking material.
To that end, it was a gratifying experience. Now, I want to know what happens next. Harriet Parke, a sequel please? Dec 07, Emily MacPherson rated it it was amazing. This was a great book and an awesome read. They discuss how the program has slipped under the radar, working its way into everyday life slowly but surely, and what the outcomes of full implementation would be.
For a comprehensive review of Agenda 21, please view TheBlaze Magazine's feature story here. Vince Flynn, author of "The Last Man," also joined Beck on the program to discuss Agenda 21 and how both of their novels have taken real life events and woven them into fictional tales.
Beck noted that he will be criticized for the fact that his book on Agenda 21 is fictional, but that the subject matter is, nonetheless, very real. News November 19, What Is Agenda 21? One last thing…. Watch TheBlaze live and on demand on any device, anywhere, anytime. Exclusive video.
