Mayors from cities all round the world gathered in Buenos Aires last month, for the annual C40 Cities World Mayors Summit.

The panel discussions centred around the idea of the 15-minute city: an increasingly popular tool for smart-city and mega-city planning strategies.

In the old days, cities mostly conformed to the pattern of residential areas separated from commercial districts, all linked by highways for a population who mostly travelled by car.

Not anymore.

Now they want us crammed into ‘smart city’ precincts, within a larger “city framework in which residents can meet their everyday needs within a 15 minute radius”.

In other words, you will never be more than 15 minutes away from the prescribed area where you are to live/work/study/shop/play/socialise/die.

According to C40’s glossy manifesto, the goal is to significantly reduce all our “consumption and production” patterns and replace them with more “sustainable” models.

Called “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5 degrees Celsius world”, the manifesto sets out a series of “consumption interventions and “targets” that each ‘smart city’ must achieve by 2030.

Here’s few you might like:

– Meat consumption per person per year – 0kg;

– Dairy consumption (milk or derivative equivalent) pp per year – 0kg;

– Privately owned vehicles per person – 0 private vehicles.

The “target” for “consumption Interventions on clothing” stipulates a measly 3 sets of new clothing items per person per year.

Oh and the “target” for Air Travel is “1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) per person every 3 years”.

People who live in Brisbane, won’t even be able to fly to Melbourne!

No doubt there will be some ‘social credit system’ devised allowing people to buy or ‘earn’ “carbon credits” to achieve a higher level of consumption outside the basic parameters.

Trillions of dollars have been spent in making all this happen.

These people may be crazy but believe me, they are deadly serious.

They want us all living like rats in a maze, jumping through their designated hoops.

I could only find two Australian C40 Cities – Melbourne and Sydney.

Michael Bloomberg is President of a board that is largely made up of reps from WEF, Rockefeller Foundation, Clinton Foundation, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, WWF and the World Resources Initiative.

All funded by the usual suspects, including: Bloomberg Philanthropies, Ikea, Open Society Foundation, Wallace Global Fund and Google.

If you want to know where all this is headed, go read Ayn Rand’s Anthem, where a totalitarian elite brainwash the world into going back to a pre-industrial system of serfdom.
