It’s interesting that these are a focus for some people. I’d imagine the Ted Kaczynski might wonder at who is guiding reproduction, and assert that this runs counter to human “wildness”. The third point runs counter to the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel. Traditionalists want tradition to be the focus, and not reason.
But, much of the Georgia Guidestones seems like common sense. Probably anyone who would be in a position to read them after some sort of apocalypse would know the points relevant to their circumstance. Points 1, 5 and 6 might not even be relevant, assuming “nations” as we know them were no longer possible.
The Georgia Guidestones, and particularly the reaction to them, provide much to think on.
