(Continued from Part 1.)
See our original field trip report - Part 1 and Part 2 along with a virtual revisitation. We reviewed the 1986 book by "Robert Christian" that is seen as the explanation guide to these stones here.
Peak Stupidity had completed only Guide #1 and Guide #2 of the 10 on our assignment to analyze the possible nefariousness of the monument when it got bombed this Wednesday morning.
(Thanks to Adam Smith for the link to this close-up image of the ruins.)
The bombing of the Georgia Guidestones was not the work of some bored kids, as if it were a fire ant hill back in my day. There's every reason to believe it was political. Politics are what the guides carved into the stones were about. Knowing all that's been written speculating on the alleged evil purpose of them, one can guess who might have done something like this.
Is it the ctrl-left or the alt-right who's responsible for this one? I'd say, wait, antipathy for the monument doesn't divide up that way. Actually there is plenty of right-wing vs. left discussion in Robert Christian's Common Sense Renewed, but
a) Just when you think the writer would be up for joining the John Birch society, hell, a FOUNDER of it, you go a chapter ahead and it seems he should have been tapped by one, no BOTH, of the Clintons' (actual and, whewww, potential) administrations.* I discussed this in my review linked-to up top.)
b) If you read just the first 1/4 of Common Sense Renewed, you will get a feel for the American Nationalism that hasn't been seen since the mid-1990s, from my personal experience following politics. Mr. Christian's major emphasis was on what will happen to America and Americans FIRST. Even the anti-Globalists don't have this healthy pro-America mindset today. Common sense renewed? We could use some Nationalism renewed here too.**
c) I don't think many of these people have read that book, at least until the day before yesterday, as I hadn't either until commenter Smith pointed it out after my visit and report. It's especially likely the actual perpetrator had not read it, or he'd have mellowed the heck out.
There's another idea about the purpose of the Georgia Guidestones that would have negated completely all the worry about these guides as advice to the modern Globalists. As I discussed in the review, 1986 (when the book was published) and 1979 (when the monument was manufactured) was a different era. The biggest large-scale worry for most people was nuclear war between the US and the USSR. It is proposed that these guides were warnings to future inhabitants of this world. The guides tell them to avoid the mistakes we made.
Anyway, nuclear war worries aside now (right?), animosity against the Guidestones falls along Globalist vs. non-Globalist (i.e. Nationalist) lines. Any reader who has even perused Peak Stupidity for half an hour would know that we stand on the Nationalist side. We don't have a topic key on "Nationalism" itself, but Immigration Stupidity*** would be a pretty good stand-in. We've got Globalists on here though, and we are against 'em! Then the Liberty/Libertarianism topic key shows our bonafides too.
In this day and age, doesn't right/left line up pretty well with Nationalist/Globalist, though? For the most part it does. A guy like Alex Jones is anti-Globalism and he'd be considered right-wing. The left has been anti-Globalist too in the recent past. Remember the big protests/near-riots in the streets of Seattle against the World Trade Organization or some such org in 1999? These young people were lefties too. Well, it was Seattle, after all, and who else lives there? Additionally, the dress code was all black, so these folks had a big advantage - they could fill the streets for a week and not have to do any laundry.
A reason people might suspect the ctrl-left for this is that they are the ones who have been doing 100% of the monument destruction as of late, and there has been a whole lot of that. They are also the people who can get away with almost any political violence now, even murder, under our modern system of Anarcho-Tyranny. (It's the non-political violence level that lies pretty much along racial lines.)
It'd be anti-Globalist intentions behind this, pretty obviously, whether someone on the right (most likely) or the left. One could have read about the evil purpose of the Guidestones before this destruction from thousands of bloggers/commenters. The writing is still there, and I'm sure the amount of reading of that writing has gone up by a few orders of magnitude this week. Ha, ha, some of the years-old comments are there with replies written yesterday and Wednesday.
As for bigger-time pundits, I kinda like Alex Jones and his American Nationalism, but having not listened-to/watched him in years, I only know from others that he's mentioned the 10 Guides.
Then, there was "Executive Order number 10", mentioned in the video interview below. One Kandiss Taylor, who ran in and lost the GOP primary for Governor of Georgia this year, proposed this as one of her first (I guess at least 10) acts, were she elected:
For decades, the Global Luciferian Regime has seeped its way into our Government.I gotta say, I like the cut of Kandiss' jib! I'd have liked to see her become Governor even. However, this E.O. #10 is nothing but a symbolic gesture. A State Governor can do actual, functional things to fight the Globalism. With shades of my problem with President Trump here, how about she have an actual political strategy, with laws to be proposed, school boards to be leaned on, and the National Guard to be mobilized? What, wait, National Guard? Yes, for illegal alien deportation, Georgia having a whole lot of them. The point is to fight one of the PRIMARY and most destructive programs of Globalism, the Population Replacement Policy. Deportation of illegal aliens, now. That's a real policy to fight Globalism. Blowing up works of art and culture, like the Taliban did, is not.
They demoralized us with humiliation rituals as they tore down our historical monuments, persecuted our children, locked us down in our homes, and forced us into becoming walking science experiments through a global vaccination program.
They erected statues spelling out the exact plans they had for us, and today we the people of Georgia, say no more. It's time for us to return the favor.
On my first day as Governor of Georgia, I will move to DEMOLISH the Demonic plans of our enemy. The Satanic agenda is NOT welcome in our state.
Support my fight by contributing, and watch as I turn the Georgia Guidestones into dust!
Just for fun, I went to Kandiss Taylor's info on the I Side With site here. She doesn't sound like traitorous Joe Biden by any means, but she's against a wall and for dual citizenship. What kind of anti-Globalist is for the latter?
Now, per Boing Boing Kandiss Taylor says "Satanic monument struck down by God". I don't know why God had to wait for 4 in the morning to strike these down - maybe to avoid injuries - but they say He works in mysterious ways.
Just a few months after that statement, one could bet that it had a lot to do with this bombing happening. No, I don't hold her responsible (though I'm not sure if that E.O. #10 she proposed would have been legal anyway.) They knock down monuments of our culture, we knock down something of theirs. Just trying to defend ours didn't work out so well under the Anarcho-Tyranny seen in Charlottesville, Virginia 5 years ago. The best defense is a good offense. I do get all that.
Like other anti-Globalists, should I too have been in favor of someone knocking those stones down or happy about it now that someone has "fought back" against the Globalists?
Nah, I'd say not on this one. It's not just that I visited the very mellow and friendly atmosphere among a dozen or so other curious people who were mostly just impressed by the work that day and then read Common Sense Renewed.
It's not just that I wonder why this monument with all that advice to the evil Globalists was erected in out-of-the-way**** Elberton, Georgia rather than in somewhere very near Washington, FS or New York, New York. Yes, Elberton, Georgia is the "Granite Capital of the World", making it cheaper to build there, but these Globalists aren't short on money. How important could this be to them?
It's also that I just get outside more, PERIOD, often talking to and dealing with other people. I am reminded of the information about mass murderer Robert Crimo that commenter E.H. Hail has written in the comments under our Independence Day (US Blues) post. Many young people's lives exist largely on-line these days! Yeah, you gotta go upstairs to eat, sometimes go to work (where you check your phone every couple of minutes), and that... However, one can get a distorted picture of reality from reading only very specific news and opinion that one picks out, watching only specific videos, writing, texting, and tweeting to a specific group of people with very specific ideas, and so on. You gotta get outside sometimes. From The Indigo Girls' Emily Saliers 32 years ago:
I gotta get out of bed, get a hammer and a nail,BTW, I DO put this on the Zoomer, and somewhat the Millennial, generations. This is not a Strauss & Howe style (Generations, Fourth Turning) deal exactly, in which I say they must politically be LIKE THIS or LIKE THAT due to their parents being from THAT generation and treating them LIKE THAT. Strauss & Howe could not have anticipated how on-line the world would get 3 decades later.
learn how to use my hands
Not just my head, I think myself in a jail .
Now i know a refuge never grows
from a chin in a hand and a thoughtful pose.
Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose.
"Hey, they did get outside and do something, both Robert Crimo and the bombers of the Georgia Guidestones", one could retort. Should they have spent MORE time with their chins in their hands in a thoughtful pose? Yeah, that'd have them off the freaking phone at least.
People DO need to fight back against Globalism and the Globalists. Got a problem with one of them? Don't shoot the messenger Don't shoot the message either. Had George Soros just been assassinated, yes, I'd be jumping around with glee. However, not all battles in this fight need involve destruction. There are constructive ways to fight it all too. Take Emily Saliers' advice and get a hammer and a nail.... I need to take her advice and get off the computer too, in just a minute...
OK, that's more of the "WHY?" and the "WHO?", not in any detail, but we'll await details. There is something odd, as others have pointed out, in the way this was handled, with the monument being completely demolished within the day by the county. (I guess?) I'll put videos in in Part 3 and some ideas about the "HOW?" too.
This 7 minute long video has an interview by a reporter from the Atlanta FoxNews station of Mr. Chris Kubas of the Elberton Granite Association. The first couple of minutes is just basic history of the way the Georgia Guidestones were ordered, with something on the anonymity. This is all interesting stuff though I'd learned it before we visited. The latter half has a good discussion on what Mr. Kubas thinks the monument was made for.
Note at 2 minutes in that, without the name Kandiss Taylor being uttered, her possible part in encouraging this destruction is discussed. I also felt good about my estimating skills when Mr. Kubas brought up the number 20,000 visitors yearly as his estimate. I guessed 100 daily in my 2nd post about our visit, so I was a bit high, but I wrote "on a nice day", as we had when we visited.
A little bit more about this video will be in the next part.
One comment under this video on the youtube site:
MysteriousOklahomaSee, that's more nonsense from the younger generations. They have no idea that there was a time when one could be pretty damned anonymous.

The man knows the whole history of the monument ...but when asked a simple question: “What was the name of the group who funded the monument.” Answer: “We don’t really know...”
Commenter E.H. Hail, he of the Hail to You blog, had lots of comments under the original field trip posts, and this one line fits in with this look at the new generations:
In other words, when different eras of history try talking to each other, a lot gets "lost in translation"!Yes, exactly! How would a 25 y/o understand the feeling of the Cold War era? How would he understand that one could go about life in most of America without being in any contact with anyone if he didn't want to and not being identifiable without a 4th Amendment "reason"?
PS: Man! This is getting ridiculous, my time spent writing. I'm sorry for rambling. I do want to put in one link, just to a short post on Marginal Revolution by Alex Tabarrok that commenter Bamyan pointed me to. This one is lots shorter than my post - The Destruction of the Georgia Guidestones and the Bamiyan Buddhas
* Not to shortchange the Bushes and Comrade Øb☭ma either, of course...
** Donald Trump makes a decent effort on this, with his words, if nothing else.
*** It's probably attached to the greatest number of posts still, unless Kung Flu Stupidity has taken the lead.
**** See the paragraph higher up in which the idea of this monument having been a guide for post-nuclear-war America, not any of us reading Peak Stupidity.
