No, Not THAT Ten Commandments!

 Let's check in with our old friend Ellis Washington, "a conservative intellectual, a thinker who holds philosophical ideas out the Judeo-Christian traditions of intellectual thought," a "former editor of the Michigan Law Review," even though he didn't attend the University of Michigan Law School (maybe he did the horoscopes), and "authorized biographer for the conservative intellectual Dr. Michael Savage," although Ellis seems to have dropped that part from his bio, and since the book never came out, we can only assume that Savage finally realized that being the subject of a 200-page tongue bath from a middle aged man might expose him to a bit of ribbing, even in San Francisco.

Anyway, Georgia resident Ellis seems to have finally noticed the Georgia Guidestones, or stumbled upon their Wikipedia entry, or heard Alex Jones ranting about them on a real radio station while Ellis was doing his fake internet talk show.  And he's ready to blow the roof off these rocks!  And the Enlightenment!  And the Renaissance!  Which are apparently all the same thing!

The Ten Commandments of the Antichrist
If you want to make an omelet, you have to be willing to break a few eggs. ~ Lenin
To make sure you understand the diabolical consequences of Lenin's idea...
Actually, I believe that quote is from Robespierre, but he was pretty diabolical too (and, being French, his omelet was probably tastier than Lenin's, although Lenin's milkshake was known to bring all the boysheviks to the yard).
...the meaning is this: To start an international revolution under communism or state socialism, you must be willing to commit genocide everywhere it is established.
Committing genocide with an egg whisk, however, is kind of labor intensive, which is probably why they switched to the guillotine.
Revolution, or death? It ultimately means: revolution = death. 
 This explains the mass extinction event in the Continental Congress.
In my study of history and philosophy...
...I've discovered that Nutella is not an effective substitute for shampoo.  Nietzsche was wrong!
...I have found that whenever one discusses progressivism or the ideas derivative of progressive politics, from Enlightenment Age philosophers whose ideas contributed to today's progressive revolution – Machiavelli, Descartes, Hobbes, Voltaire, Rousseau, Robespierre –
I didn't realize Machiavelli was considered a major Enlightenment Age philosopher.  I should get out more.  Or, if I hope to engage Ellis on a level intellectual plane, be shut in more.
...to the ideas concurrent with the advent of the progressive revolution in the 1880s – J.S. Mill, Marx, Social Darwinism, natural selection, survival of the fittest, eugenics (invented by Darwin's cousin Francis Galton) and Nietzsche's will to power and aristocracy paradigm – the leitmotiv is always the same: For the glory of the revolution, kill the inferior, cultivate the superior. 
I wonder if it's a good idea for Ellis to wade into Social Darwinism when he hasn't quite mastered Darwinism.
The early 20th century witnessed the classical age of Progressivism with books like Lenin's "The State and Revolution" (1917), Sanger's "The Pivot of Civilization" (1922), Hitler's "Mein Kampf" (1925), Freud's "The Future of an Illusion" (1927), Kinsey's "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" (1948) and Betty Friedan's classic, "The Feminine Mystique" (1948), among many others.
The Feminine Mystique was published in 1963, but what's 15 years to a scholar like Mr. Washington.  Especially since he believes that Genesis is literally true, so humanity (and the cosmos) only go back about 6,000 years, which means we have to pack an awful lot of history into very little time, and things like the Renaissance and the Enlightenment are just going to need to have happened simultaneously.  Also the Roman Empire and dinosaurs, which I wish were true, because it really would have spiced up I, Claudius.
The common objective in these diabolical books is promoting the ideals of the progressive revolution. Whether it is the end justifies the means, for the greater good, survival of the fittest, God is dead, a New World Order, first brown, then red, "is" (legality) over "ought"(morality) – all end in death for the individual and genocide for most of society. 
Ellis thought feminism was a good idea until it committed genocide.  Now with all the dead individuals it's hard to find a date, especially for the major holidays.  
This genocide theme is reflected in the Georgia Guidestones. I first heard of this bizarre monument while watching Jesse Ventura's TV show, "Conspiracy Theory." 
I'm impressed.  Usually WorldNetDaily articles don't bother with citations.
The Georgia Guidestones is a large granite monument in Elbert County, Ga., near Athens. A message comprising 10 guides is inscribed in eight modern languages, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages' scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit and Egyptian hieroglyphs. 
Speaking of citations, that's a word for word quote from Wikipedia, so take a lesson, Historians.  When you're doing history, make sure that you -- like Ellis -- have at least three primary sources, such as the Bible, Wikipedia, and Jesse Ventura. 
The Message of the Georgia Guidestones reads:
  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

  2. Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.

  3. Unite humanity with a living new language. 

  4. Rule passion – faith – tradition – and all things with tempered reason. 

  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts. 

  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.

  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials. 

  8. Balance personal rights with social duties. 

  9. Prize truth – beauty – love – seeking harmony with the infinite. 

  10. Be not a cancer on the earth – Leave room for nature – Leave room for nature.
Nobody knows who wrote the inscription -- nor, for that matter, who paid a contractor to put up the granite manifesto -- but a close analysis of the text reveals that it's probably an eco-friendly, pro-choice libertarian Tea Partier with a yen for gardening and Esperanto.
Clearly, this  Hillbilly Stonehenge is Ground Zero for the Final Conflict.  Armegeddon will break out in Elbert County, Georgia, so if you were planning to get to the Dress Barn to pick up some after-Valentines Day bargains, I'd get a move on.
Interestingly, Ventura's show was about global warming. What does global warming have to do with cutting down the world population by 93 percent, from 7 billion to 500 million? How would socialists, progressives and globalists achieve such genocide? Who would decide who lives and who dies? When would this diabolical scheme begin … or has it already begun?
This is what I imagine it'd be like playing Trivial Pursuit with the Mel Gibson character from Conspiracy Theory.
It was an epiphany moment for me. 
[C]ould the Georgian Guidestones be a blueprint for a future progressive utopia where the majority of the world's population is eradicated while the progressive elites live and rule in peace?
You'd think if the progressive elites had drawn up blueprints for world conquest, they could also have figured out a way to make them more portable.  These monoliths are going to be hard to pass out at meetings.
Geologist Dr. Leuren Moret informed Ventura of the uranium that occurs naturally in bedrock groundwater: "Since uranium is an estrogen and a hormone disrupter, the female population is expanding and the male population is shrinking."
Given that Jesse took steroids, I think he's just making the uranium a scapegoat for male shrinkage.
Moret continues, "The plastic that the water's in, the bottle, has chemicals that change the estrogen and the testosterone. In other words, chemicals in our bodies are related to reproduction. It's killing our future generations. It's the unborn baby that is being most affected."
So as you can see, Elbert County's one tourist attraction is going to destroy all life on Earth.
Guess who is making all of the plastic bottles for America's drinking water? Communist China.
 ... Notice how every major progressive policy – from perpetual wars, the welfare state, eugenics, condoms, abortion, to legalizing drugs, embryonic stem cells, euthanasia and Obamacare with its death panels, is specifically designed to defeat Natural Law and God's original intent that mankind is the pinnacle of creation.
You've convinced me.  I'm going to immediately stop drinking uranium smoothies out of my plastic Chinese Sippy cup.
How can we stop Lenin and the progressive revolution during the Age of Obama from breaking more eggs for their omelets?
We can make them switch to Egg Beaters®!  Although Lenin is wily, and may not be that concerned about his cholesterol, since he's been dead for 87 years.
 When all men of good will start being fruitful, multiply, replenish, subdue and have dominion over the earth … and remember the lessons of the Georgia Guidestones.
I wonder how big Ellis's family is?  He's never mentioned a wife or children that I can recall, but I'm sure he'd never violate Natural Law by failing to be fruitful.

Oh well.  The important thing is, Don't Knock the Rock, and cultivate a BDSM relationship with the Earth (my safe word is "igneous.")

And Valley of the Dolls(1966) I'm beginning to see some sort of pattern here. Maybe something to do with time. Maybe someone found a list somewhere.

"... Notice how every major progressive policy – from perpetual wars,..."

Wait, that one's not in my handbook.

If the poor thing really believed all that spectacular nonsense, he would be in a constant state of true terror, wouldn't he? But he isn't, judging by his writing. He sounds more like a petulant scold. Of course his style, or "style" may be getting in the way.

OTOH, I'd never heard of the Georgia Guidestones before this, so thanks, Ellis and Scott. They're cool and good! Also, every time Ellis uses "diabolical", I hear Bugs Bunny saying dia-bo-LIK-ul sabo-TAJ-ee. And then the Gremlin says, "These blockbuster bombs won't go off unless you hit 'em juuuust right..." And that's fun! So thanks again, Ellis.

If we don't have "dominion" over the Earth with close to 7 Billion people, I'm not sure when we ever will...

Are we supposed to be fruitful until we hit the Soylent Green level, or is it ok to stop just short?

James Briggs Stratton "Doghouse" Riley said...

1. I love you, Scott.

2. I was all set to compliment Mr. Washington for using "comprises" correctly when I saw he lifted it from Wikipedia. Which makes it only slightly less surprising.

3. I should have read on. "Epiphany moment" is more his style.

4. Leuren Moret is not a Doctor of Geology, or any other Logy. Though, as every Crapiste knows, in Wingnuttia "Dr." is merely a term of affection, and anyone with an actual doctorate is known as "Dr. Professor So-and-So, Ph.D. Doctor".

5. They really need to keep better land use records in Elbert County.

6. Speaking of which, how is it the construction company, the sponsors (listed on the plaque nearby), and the local citizenry get a free pass on the thing? Conspiracy?

7. Why would Homeopathy Dr. Michael Weiner, Ph.D, authorize someone to write his biography when Screamin' Mike Savage! is plastered all over his other works? Is it possible that Washington mistook something that was said to him? Like, "Dr. Savage would like you to stop calling. You're scaring his other listeners." ?

8. What kind of fucked up Utopia has 500,000,000 people in it? I still dream of culling Thanksgiving dinner at my sister's.

9. Nobody tell Ellis about Adlai Stevenson and the Desiderata, okay?

10. At least I know now where we're taking our summer vacation.

Georgia Guidestones? I dunno - I'm more a Time Cube man myself.

Marion in Savannah said...

On behalf of the city of Savannah, hell, the entire state of Georgia, please allow me to apologize for Mr. Washington. Honest to God, we're not all insane down here. (Well, until we get behind the wheel of a car. Then all bets are off.)

I love how the authoritarian right throws together a list of completely unrelated people and those which are the sorriest excuses for human beings, the names included to really tar the list with unbridled evil, are always their guys. Machiavelli is Karl Rove's hero. Last time I checked Rove was not a progressive. If Robespierre was a philosopher so must have been Al Capone. Ellis might have at least used Marat as his straw man. Notice that Thomas Paine isn't mentioned as an enlightenment bogeyman, as that might give pause even to the rubes for which this screed was intended.

Social darwinism was the philosophy of the robber barons. Not even a dim bulb like Ellis could possibly believe Cornelius Vanderbilt was a progressive. The greatest promoters of eugenics were the Harriman family, Prescott Bush's bonesman buddies Averell and Bunny and their mother Mary. They were Nazi sympathizers, helped finance the Reich, and influenced its racial purity laws, as did statutes already on the books in places like Virginia, but they weren't progressives.

Hitler, of course is the crazy uncle they keep in the attic, great ideas, but the trail of bodies has rendered the brand irredeemable, thus he's been foist off on the black sheep libertines in the family who he was so fond of abusing.

Religious right wingnuts fearful of the luciferian globalist agenda have been ranting on message boards about the Georgia Guidestones for the past decade. The world population probably exceeded half a billion by about 1650, so this present tense "maintain" on a monument built in 1980 seems more than a little ridiculous. It's a bit like somebody, who weighs 350 lbs. vowing to maintain a 30 inch waist.

I hope we all remember that famous Voltaire quote: "I may agree with what you say, but I will call for your death if it troubles King Louis."

He would have supported the Confederacy during the Civil War also.

The Georgia Guidestones sounds like a good name for a gospel group.

Hamish Mack said...

If you're going to have a world wide conspiracy so secretive that it defeats the acumen of Jesse Ventura, the best way to keep it secret is to put it on a fucking huge granite monument.
Also the evil philosophers song is NOT FUNNY!

Does he believe in the literal truth of Genesis with Phil Collins as front man? Or with Peter Gabriel up front and Collins on drums?

Jesus created a set number of angels. all angels are male. 1/3 of all angels rebelled against Jesus. Jesus turned the rebels into spiritual darkness (aka demons) and expelled them from heaven down to earth. all demons are male. demons disguise themselves as ghosts, aliens in ufos, greys, spirit guides, ascended masters, pagan gods and goddesses, channeled entities, dead relatives during seances, ouija board movers, psychic's sources, medium's source of info, astrologer's helpers, seer's well of info, oracle's guide, automatic writing spirits, meditator's cohabitors, and, of course, as the "good fellas" (angels of light). the only way to fight demons is to be a christian.

-demons will land their ufo ships on the streets and will invite people to be healed. whoever goes in, comes out a zombie.
-80 foot dinosaurs will come out through lakes and sinkholes to eat us.
-evil red-eye antichrist with white powder on his face will come to power. this clown is gay. whoever worships this clown, goes to hell.
-evil electronic 666 tattoo by lasers with small grey world passport will become mandatory. whoever gets it, goes to hell.
-whoever gets chipped is easily tracked to get lasered. so, avoid getting lasered by not getting chipped.

1)demons have 4 ufo bases:
b)inside mountain kailas
c)underneath mariana trench (atlantis is here)
d)lake baikal
2)airplanes that go down are hit by demons because they need the airspace to fight Jesus.
3)ufos are powered by diamonds.
4)whoever goes inside a ufo ship to be healed by demons, comes out a zombie
