One of the most disquieting aspects of the Georgia Guidestones is the very first of the ‘commandments’: “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” The concept of population control is not exclusive to the Guidestones, especially insofar as drawing a correlation with a balance with nature, but the 500 million is 1/16th of the present population that would have to… die.
Most commonly, this topic pertains to controlling future births, including debates about the use of contraceptives vis-a-vis Catholicism or government intervention, such as China’s one-child policy. But what option is there to reduce a population if it is seen as 7.5 billion people more than desired? And if so many people are to die, could it be a gradual process or would it necessarily have to be a single, sudden method? The commandments on the GA Guidestones are then advice not for those of us who currently see them, but those left after some cataclysmic event, since it is only once the population is below 500 million that anyone can ‘maintain’ the population of that size. Population levels were already approximately 4 billion in 1975 – over 5 years before the center cluster of the Guidestones were erected. The use of the word maintain clearly conveys that this message is not for those alive before a cataclysmic event.
Van Smith offers an interesting link between cataclysmic events, astronomy and structures such as the Guidestones:
Supposedly, B.F. Coggins, an extremely wealthy and powerful granite and real estate magnate in Elberton, Georgia, has in his company’s possession a Rosicrucian document describing the Georgia Guidestones monument as some sort of portal. The document admits that the monument contains hidden messages, but that only the enlightened will understand them. Moreover, the monument was designed for an activation event that will indicate the immediate threat of a global catastrophe so horrific that humanity will come close to losing all hope. The document reassures the survivors that they are loved and will be cared for. The tenor is such to evoke the impression that intercession will occur either supernaturally or by space aliens.
I deeply doubt the veracity of these claims, but if there is any possibility that they are true, the “activation event” can only mean that Polaris, the North Star, will drift out of the sighting hole drilled into the Gnomen stone. When I was last at the Guidestones this fall, Polaris was barely visible within the sighting hole.
This benevolent account of the Georgia Guidestones also closely follows Hopi legends of a similar construction that their ancestors built in order to track polar alignment to warn of the coming Day of Purification, a very similar catastrophe used as fodder for 2012 hysteria.
However, there is no reputable scientific evidence supporting the notion of an impending 2012 cataclysm. On the other hand, there are good reasons to believe that the Georgia Guidestones is an arrogant advertisement for the demented plans of a deranged but powerful cult to overthrow national governments and install a totalitarian global government.
If anything, 2012 hysteria will be used as a smokescreen for manmade chaos leading up to that event.
Astronomy-based events, or natural disasters more broadly, is but one theory to describe so catastrophic a drop in population. However, there is reason to consider for whom population control benefits and, apart from a general interest in nature, who could assume they would be one of the 500 million to survive and also contribute to the event that reduces the population. Van Smith uses this as the basis for his assertion that R.C. Christian is Ted Turner.
Smith highlights, among other evidence, Ted Turner’s interest in population control, which includes the following statement: “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”
To this end, Terry Melanson builds on this argument by adding Raymond Wiley’s observation that the monument’s language is reminiscent of “what I would define as late-1970s Ted Turner environmentalism. It’s got very much that kind of quality to it … and lots of mentions of nature, nature, nature.”
Melanson continues along this path, drawing connections with the Illuminati:
The edifice, its message and supposed author, bears the signature of a Rosicrucian, new age, elite environmental philanthropic ethos that reached its apogee in the 80s and early 90s – people like Ted Turner and Maurice Strong and the globalists in the Club of Rome and the Aspen Institute. Environmentalism, population control, impeding catastrophe, world government, allusions to esotericism or occult traditions – it is all there in the saga of the guidestones, just as it is with the new age elite-turned-globalist billionaires.
And traditionally, the “new world order” rhetoric of the elite has invariably been accompanied by the longing for some sort of “world government,” and disdain for patriotism and nationalism. It seems to have been coined in the 1860s by the founder of the Bahá’í Faith. According to Bahá’u’lláh, a genuine “New World Order” required the establishment of a World Government, World Parliament, World Code Of Law, World Tribunal, World Police Force, World Language, a permanent single currency, an international uniform tax, and unity of all the world’s religions under the umbrella of the Bahá’í Faith.
Yet, even with these theories in mind, we are still no closer in conceiving how the population will be so drastically reduced in size in order for this ‘new world order’ to exist. The topic, however, has no shortage of stabs in the dark made every day with regard to any number of natural disaster theories, biological contaminates, etc. We will look at some of these in future weeks.
