ELBERTON, Ga. (AP) — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said the Georgia Guidestones monument near Elberton was damaged by an explosive device.
Elberton Granite Association Executive Vice President Chris Kubas told local news outlets that the monument was significantly damaged. Pictures and drone footage show one of the four stone panels in rubble on the ground.
The enigmatic roadside attraction was built in 1980 from local granite, commissioned by an unknown person or group under the name R.C. Christian. The 19-foot-high (6-meter-high) panels bear a 10-part message in eight different languages with guidance for living in an “age of reason.” One part calls for keeping world population at 500 million or below, while another calls to “guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.”
It also serves as a sundial and astronomical calendar.
The roadside attraction received renewed attention during Georgia’s May 24 gubernatorial primary when third-place Republican candidate Kandiss Taylor claimed the guidestones are satanic and made demolishing them part of her platform.
UPDATE: Heavy equipment was brought in and they were destroyed altogether.
Thank you JM.
2. This has not aged well
Comparing Canada, Australia andThe Netherlands:
3. Dutch Farmers buy a tank in response to Police shooting at them?
(The tank is obviously more for humour and symbolism than as a tool with which to fight back against what is now nakedly an authoritarian state. But symbols can turn into the thing they symbolize pretty quickly. If you can find an honest search engine left anywhere, check out the number of times Sikh ceremonial daggers and swords are used in conflict as weapons. It happens a lot. So could the Dutch farmers be the thing that triggers the great pushback? We can only hope. At some point, freedom has to be defended. The cost is usually high.)
4. Remembering Communism. This is a ten minute video. But if you don’t have the ten minutes, wait a few months and go to a grocery store. You won’t have to remember. Is it possible that wisdom is learning from your own experience, but genius is learning from the experience of others? If so, here is a small chance to show our genius.
5. Dr. Mark Trozzi speaks at last night’s Canadian Doctors Zoom. (More to come from that)
Thank you all for your continued observance and thoughts.
