Here is something they fail to mention in history class. In Elbert County, GA someone with a pseudonym of R.C. Christian hired an Elberton granite company to erect this monument providing ten “guidelines” in eight different languages and was unveiled on March 22, 1980. This definitely gives some interesting thought with a lot of questions. Below is the ten guidelines:
- 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.
- Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
- Balance personal rights with social duties.
- Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
- Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
