If you were to travel to Elbert County, Georgia, you would see erected on the top of one of its hilltops a strange and ominous granite monument. It is comprised of four giant stones that support a common capstone. It resembles the famous Stonehenge Monument in England. The Elbert County monument has aroused a lot of curiosity and it is often referred to as the American Stonehenge or The Georgia Guidestones. Inscribed on the monument stone are what can be considered the ten commandments of the New World Order. The first of these commandments, written in eight different languages, states “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” The second commandment is “Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.” There is a lot of mystery surrounding the origin of this monument. It is not public knowledge who commission its construction. What is known is that in 1979 a well-dressed man, identifying himself as R. C. Christian, inquired of Elberton Granite Finishing Company for their assistance in building an edifice to announce a message to mankind. Beyond this little else is known about the origin of this monument.

Regardless that little is known of the origin of the monument, any man or woman can understand its message by simply reading it and its message is population and reproduction control. Our world is populated by over seven billion human beings. To reduce that number to 500,000,000 would require a program of very dramatic depopulation.

The idea of population control can be observed around the world, most notably in China where up until recently the government strictly enforced a one-child family policy. According to government officials, this policy has prevented four hundred million births. However, the idea of population control is not confined only to Asia. It is alive in western civilization as well. An early proponent was the British economistThomas Malthus who warned of the dangers of increased population and spoke of “positive checks”1 and “preventative checks.”2 “Positive checks” referred to natural causes of human depopulation such as natural disasters, diseases, famines, etc. “Preventative checks” referred to man-made initiatives to control population growth.

Man-made initiatives at controlling populations has become a popular idea with many social theorists within western civilization. Paul R. Ehrlich, an American biologist and environmentalist, in 1968, produced a book, “The Population Bomb.” In it, he called for mandatory regulation of births and the addition of fertility sterilants into the food or water supply. Sterility could then be reversed by taking a government rationed and government controlled antidote.3

The idea of adding sterilants to a public water and food supply was not unique to Ehrlich but was advocated by other early eugenicists such as Margaret Sanger. (For information of the eugenics movement, read my booklets “Charles Darwin and the Races of Man” and “The Truth About Planned Parenthood”). I strongly disagree with Ehrlich's and the eugenicists call for compulsory birth regulation on the grounds that it is a violation of human rights. I am sure that many others would agree with me and, yet, many prominent personalities in western history have advocated for population control. They would include Bertrand Russell, John D. Rockefeller, Margaret Sanger, Isaac Asimov, Frederick Osborn, Arne Naess and Jacques Cousteau. Modern-day advocates of population control would include David Attenborough, Crispin Tickell, Michael E. Arth, Sara Parkin, Ted Turner and Jonathon Porritt (the UK Sustainable Development Commissioner).

As population management is becoming a more and more popular idea in western civilization, more and more organizations are beginning to promote it. The late Jacques Cousteau said in “The Unesco Courier”:

It's terrible to have to say this. World population must be stabilized and to do that we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. This is so horrible to contemplate that we shouldn't even say it. But the general situation in which we are involved is lamentable.”4

The magazine “Balanced View,” in their August 2007 issue, ran an article entitled “Reducing Human Numbers by 80%”. The author of the article, J. Kenneth Smail, said “My position is simply stated. Within the next half-century, it will be essential for the human species to have fully operational a flexibly designed, broadly equitable and internationally coordinated set of initiatives focused on reducing the then-current world population by at least 80%.”5 I strongly disagree with Jaques Cousteau and J. Kenneth Smail because it is  not ethical to eliminate people simply to control population.

For many years population control has been a goal of many United Nations initiatives. The United Nations refers to population control as population stabilization. The U. N. organization, POPIN

(United Nations Population Information Network) says; “We believe that the time has come now to recognize the world-wide necessity to achieve population stabilization and for each country to adopt the necessary policies and programs to do so, consistent with its own culture and aspirations.”6 If you go to the United Nations website and type Population Stabilization in their search box, you will see that they have much to say about this topic. In their 2008 press conference on Revision of The World Population Prospects, the apparent message of Hania Zlotnik, the director of the population division, is summarized on the U.N. website to say; “To control overpopulation, governments must be prepared to admit to a problem and to act quickly to stem the tide, such as in Bangladesh, which now enjoyed a fertility rate of 2.4 children per woman.”7 The United Nations is enormously influential on the world scene. What is the extent of their plan for population stabilization? What does acting quickly to stem the tide of the problem of overpopulation look like? What are the necessary policies and programs that the U.N. would like to see implemented? I am opposed to such policies, programs and quick action because they are not spelled out.

If the world population is to be reduced, how is this to be achieved? The most common answer given by population stabilization activists to that question is that to achieve this will require birth control and in the defenition of many birth control includes abortion. Human life is of immeasurable value. It is sacred. I am opposed to abortion. There are enough resources in this world to sustain it if people are given access to those resources. We need to return to valuing people again.
