Have you heard of the Georgia Guidestones? This is seriously scary. They are a massive stone monument in Elberton, Georgia, inscribed with 10 commandments or rules, the first of which is that the earth's population should be reduced to 500,000 people. This would mean that 11 out of every 12 of us are no longer needed! The 19 foot high stones were commissioned by someone calling himself 'Mr Christian' and paid for by anonymous donors.
The wording is in several languages. The ten 'guides' say: 1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. 2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity. 3. Unite humanity with a living new language. 4. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason. 5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts. 6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court. 7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials. 8. Balance personal rights with social duties. 9. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite. 10. Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature. I wonder who is going to decide which of us is a 'cancer'. On the same theme, here's a less than cheerful statement from Jacques Costeau - I wondered why I could never stand that guy. Now I know - he was a real jerk!
Here are Jacque's words of anti-wisdom: "In order to stabilize world population, it is necessary to eliminate 350,000 people a day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it's just as bad not to say it." - Oceanographer Jaques Cousteau, published in the Courier, a publication of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Do you get the picture? Somebody out there doesn't like the rest of us breathing oxygen! And they have got some clout. You do not commission a huge stone monument and have it erected in a field without some serious money.
