I've read of these 10 guides in the list (in 8 languages) on the big monument in Elberton, Georgia that many have written and speculated about being called "Commandments". I won't use that word, as nobody has claimed they are the Word of God, and I don't think they are more than the pie-in-the-sky ramblings of a guy with good intentions but too much time on his hands. Hence, the title here is an allusion to the title of this Mr. "R.C. Christian's book, Common Sense Renewed along with our conclusion that the Georgia Guidestones are nothing nefarious, and we should use common sense in interpreting their 10
I will discuss each of the 10 in order. However, if it gets boring, with nothing much to say (not usually a problem here at Peak Stupidity!), I'll combine a few in some posts. Here is the one that has caused the big, big brewhaha that at least ought to have brought more business to the BBQ joints of Elberton, Georgia than it seems to. I imagine the 50 to 100 parties - my estimate of an average it brings daily - beats having the world's biggest ball of yarn would, but probably not by much. Plus our "party" went to Taco Bell, lest we forget (not my idea!).
It tells the visitor to "MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE." That's 500 million people, for the visitors from Del Boca Vista.
Firstly, let me reiterate a little bit of my summary of the Common Sense Renewed book (the link above is to the PS review) which spends 125 pages trying to solve the problems of the world. Mr. Christian is a Libertarian at the beginning, then a Socialist, first a John Bircher, then a proponent of world army, a race realist then, well, he's knew his shit there at least. He was all over the map in that book because, though he understood the world's problems (with a slant toward the Cold War world), he didn't really have solid solutions.
So, 500 million people, huh? Even in 1979, when these stones were carved, the population of the world was 4,380 million*. It would have required a culling, the word some thing is apt, of 88% of the world population even then, to get to this goal of a proper population level for humanity. Now, the culling would have to be 93.5%, and I can think of just the ninety-three and a half percent to cull too!
OK, really, though I'm sure R.C. Christian just pulled it out of his ass, I kind of like his number, I'll admit. There are environmental reasons to keep the population reasonable, as this guide tells us, along with just a much less stressful world**. The world WOULD be better off with only 1/2 a billion people, be they the right kind. The only people who seem to want a continuous increase in America's and the world's population are the Big Biz clowns who want nothing but to be able to sell MOAR and MOAR toilet paper.
I go back to my Science Fiction reading days of the 1970s/'80s. I've written this before on Peak Stupidity, so I'll paste in this excerpt from the over 5 year-ago post Effect of Automation on Future World society:
Back to the science-fiction story, the future told by optimistic stories, in the 70′s and 80′s, during my enjoyment of this literature, looked more like a sparsely-populated world (along with other worlds we we might want to hang out) where we got around in flying machines, lived in our hand-picked beautiful environments far away from our fellow man until we wanted a change, worked a few hours a day at the work we loved, and worked on cool intellectual projects of all kinds with our copious spare time (due to the automation). It sounded great to me, though I never thought that much of the automation would come in my lifetime. That was wrong on my part. What was wrong on the part of the science-fiction writers however, was one big assumption about the people in this future world.If the Globalist elites that people think are followers of the Georgia Guidestones had anything to do with it, why would they have implemented the Welfare State almost 6 decades ago in this country, have let Socialism grow in Europe, and have encouraged the aid to Africa that has done nothing but set it into an upward population spiral? That'd be stupid. Have they been working completely against their goals out of pure stupidity?
The future people were all intelligent, and even 50 years ago, one might still rightly assume that the intelligent people would get ahead in the world and produce the bulk of the people of this bright future. Well, I should say “rightly” only if one didn’t see the welfare state and the degradation of the culture coming. This assumption was way, way off. The bulk of the population of this world is not the intelligent and well-educated crowd, we all know that by now.
It's been 42 years since anyone could have dropped by the nice 5 acre site and read Guide 1. After reading it and taking it to heart, making a much different plan, one that incentivized the world to a lower and more intelligent population would have been my decision, were I one of the Globalist elite at the time. Alas, I wasn't, and alas, I'm still not.
One of the few things that Mr. Christian got solidly right in his book is his call for eugenic policies, rather than the dysgenic ones that are leading the world to the level of Idiocracy at a speed 10 x that in the Mike Judge movie. Eugenics don't mean culling, or killing people off. The best the world could hope for is for the increases in the worst parts of the world and the worst segments of developed societies to level off*** and the population to get down to that level of that nice Sci-Fi world in a couple of hundred years.
The Globalist elites of the world are a bunch of psychopaths, and they see things differently. I don't doubt that they would like to change things quickly, to a world in which THEY are those people traveling around the lonely planet in their flying cars, above the few remaining peons that they haven't culled. I would not doubt that there are some nefarious plans by people like Bill Gates out there. I just don't think that Georgia Guidestones Guide #1 was written by them or for them, is all. It's just a number pulled out of the ass of a decent concerned pie-in-the-sky would-be world saver.
PS: I did read the somewhat tinfoil-hat style writings of one Van Smith, as per a link from commenter Adam Smith (no kin, I assume) in the comments recently. After some interesting speculation about this extra cube of granite that seems to have been put in, removed, replaced, I don't know, I was turned off by Mr. Smith's disdain for the guy he claims is the actual R.C. Christian, he being a "White Supremacist" from Ft. Dodge, Iowa. Then, this Van Smith criticizes the Guidestone's creator's ideas on eugenics, which when it comes down to it, with some of that race realism, is what it's gonna take to fix all this, if anything does!
About the cube, though, I neither noticed its presence nor a conspicuous absence of it. This calls for a 2nd trip perhaps, subject to the Peak Stupidity accounting department's latest look at our budget.

** I think of commenter SafeNow's experience in California, as he mentioned in a comment about 3 posts back.
*** America's population would have leveled off nicely at a quarter billion or so, had the immigration invasion not been implemented. Just these pure numbers, with no racial angle involved, are ones that most Americans are not at all aware of. They just think population growth is inevitable.
