China’s slow economy forces college grads to live in “ant colonies”

Despite having a college degree, wages are low for job seekers. At a recent Beijing job fair, graduates know the odds: only 35 percent have found work.

More than a million recent graduates have ended up crammed into cheap subdivided apartments. They’re packed in so tight, they’re nicknamed “ants.”

These apartments — “ant colonies” — are illegal. CBS NEWS took a hidden camera to see one with 20 beds and one bathroom. Another unit we saw slept 30.

    This is all part of Agenda 21, where we will all have to live in Eco towns, which equates to high density apartments. We will all be eventually stopped from using cars and supposedly our employment will all be close by.

    Agenda 21 openly says that private ownership of land and property is bad and must be stopped and in a very carefully worded statement, hints that car ownership should be curtailed as well. And it will all be sold to the dumb masses under the guise of green living and saving the planet.

    We will become serfs on the global plantation or worse, we will be farmed like cattle.

    A few years back, photographer Michael Wolf took photographs of 100 residents of a single high-rise apartment complex in Hong Kong. The photos show residents living in 10 x 10 feet apartments. If you have not seen them, you really must. Just do an internet search for Michael Wolf Hong Kong photographs 100 x 100. Extraordinary photos. Is this what Agenda 21, which Road_Hog mentioned, has in store for all of us?
