In today's world, we face many challenges as a species. From climate change to global pandemics, there are countless issues that we must confront if we hope to survive and thrive in the future. One set of guidelines that has been proposed as a solution to some of these problems is the Georgia Guidestones, a granite monument erected in 1980 in Elbert County, Georgia. The Guidestones feature 6 principles for the maintenance of a sustainable society, and they have generated much controversy and debate since their creation. In this article, we will examine each of these principles in turn and discuss their potential implications for our world.
- 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.
