Agenda 21, written both by Glenn Beck and Harriet Parke, depicts a fictional society dominated by an oppressive central authority. The main protagonist, Emmaline, is an 18 year-old woman who is living in a concentration camp setting. She has to provide energy quotas by walking on a ‘treadmill’, and provide the government with children. Her parents used to live free as farmers but have been taken into a government compound. In addition, Emmaline does not remember being relocated. During her stay, she loses her mom, has a baby, learns about her history (her mom saved items) and gets paired with various partners; she likes two but hates one. Her last partner is someone she loves and eventually persuades to leave the compound.
This book deals with the idea of socialism – why there is no incentive to succeed, the rights of the individual vs everyone, how a central authority dictates everything, the comfort of being provided for, and the goal of saving the Earth by radical objectives (relocation, and rewilding).
Honestly, the story is a bit bland and boring for me, Glenn Beck brings to light an agenda that if followed can lead to the loss of the American way of life – freedom, private property, and rule of law. At the end of the book, he has a section for further reading and information if you are interested.
