The Georgia Guidestones (America’s Stonehenge)

“If you are thinking 1 year ahead, plant seeds. If you are thinking 10 years ahead, plant a tree. If you are thinking 100 years ahead, educate the people.” ~Chinese Emperor Kuan Tsu (5th century BC)

The Georgia Guidestones, a large granite monument in Elbert County, Georgia (USA), contain ten inscribed guides for mankind in Swahili, Spanish, Russian, Hindi, English, Hebrew, Arabic, and Chinese languages.

The monument was commissioned in 1979 by a Mr. R.C. Christian and build by the Elberton Granite Finishing Company.

Sometimes referred to as “America’s Stonehenge,” the essence of the messages engraved on the Georgia Guidestones deal with governance and the establishment of a world government, population and reproduction control, the environment and our relationship to nature, and spirituality.

The following (controversial) Guides are engraved on the stones in the languages noted above:

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

The Devil's Excrement

Observations focused on the problems of an underdeveloped country, Venezuela, with some serendipity about the world (orchids, techs, science, investments, politics) at large. A famous Venezuelan, Juan Pablo Perez Alfonzo, referred to oil as the devil's excrement. For countries, easy wealth appears indeed to be the sure path to failure. Venezuela might be a clear example of that.
