This is the 40th anniversary of the Georgia Guidestones.
The Georgia Guidestones are a granite monument erected in 1980 in Elbert County, Georgia, in the United States. The monument was unveiled on March 22, 1980.
A set of 10 guidelines is inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient language scripts.
According to Wikipedia the engraving on the stones contain the following message written in eight different languages, one language on each face of the four large upright stones. Moving clockwise around the structure from due north, these languages are: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Traditional Chinese, and Russian.
- Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
- Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
- Unite humanity with a living new language.
- Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
- Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
- Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
- Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
- Balance personal rights with social duties.
- Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
- Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
While many believe the Guidestones were a warning from the New World Order of a sinister plan to actively reduce the global population, others believe it describes the basic concepts required to rebuild a devastated civilization, following somekind of global disaster such as a plague or world war, where the population was already reduced to below the 500 million referenced.
In any case, amid a global pandemic in 2020, brought on by the concerns of the Covid-19 virus, it deserves to be noted on this day, some 40 years to the date of its unveiling.
