Guidestones to the Future

 Remember the Georgia Guidestones? They were a mystery until some conspiracy nutters decided to bomb them. But the inscriptions survive. 

The Georgia Guidestones

  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.

Some will say that’s all utopian idealism. But many of us understand that we’re seriously in danger of seeing the extinction of human beings. We’ve caused extreme damage to the only home we have through greed and ignorance. Earth cannot sustain an ever increasing population. 

I suggest we consider heeding the advice on the Guidestones. We’ve gone too long in the wrong direction.
