“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it!”
As well-spoken and articulate as ever, Mr. Balboa.
Except, both sunshine and rainbows have become suspicious signs of the dreaded “climate change” symptom, and, as always, we are the virus that needs to be eradicated.
It used to be “global warming”, with skinny polar bears clinging to dwindling icebergs warning us of planet Earth’s destruction due to Man’s selfish ways.
These days it’s snow in Namibia or Afghanistan. Or, an unprecedented number of farm and processing plant fires worldwide. Or, thousands of cattle dying of heat stroke in Kansas. Or, multiple people dying of actual strokes or having miscarriages, again, damn that pesky climate change!
It must be true. Science tells us so.
And, besides, what kind of a psycho would misrepresent these facts about the planet in an attempt to manipulate humanity’s emotions?
Well, the kind of people that are behind The Club of Rome fit the bill. Or, maybe it’s “A Small Group of Americans Who Seek The Age Of Reason” – you know, the reptiles who sponsored the so-called Georgia Guidestones to be built in 1980.
The story goes like this…
A Compass, A Calendar, A Clock
In June of 1979, a man going by the pseudonym of R.C. Christian approached the Elberton Granite Finishing Company with the task of building a monument. Christian explained that the stones would function as a compass, calendar, and clock, and should be capable of “withstanding catastrophic events”. He said that no one was to ever know his true identity or that of the group that he was representing. He seemed to have an endless supply of money to fund the project and by the terms of the legal contract, all plans had to be destroyed after completion and all information about him withheld from the public.
Nothing fishy here at all folks.
In 1980, the stones were finished. Known as America’s Stonehenge, this 19-foot high monument displays ten guidelines meant to re-establish the planet and society, perhaps after an apocalypse – in 12 languages.
- 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. (Yes, twice!)
They carry a tablet in front proclaiming, “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason.”
Great! The Age of Reason. Enlightenment. Sounds fantastic – can’t wait for it to start. Because when true “enlightenment” dawns, revolution follows.
The end of an empire.
Except, it’s hard to imagine folks less enlightened than the ones I’m showcasing in today’s vlog. I think nature would agree.
“No, maybe I can’t win, maybe the only thing I can do is just take everything he’s got. But to beat me, he’s gonna have to kill me, and to kill me, he’s gonna have to have the heart to stand in front of me, and to do that, he’s gotta be willing to die himself.” – Rocky Balboa
