It doesnt say eliminate it says maintain a low one. As in self maintain not by government. Like not making babies constantly.
Here is what the Georgia Guidestones say in relevance to global population....
1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Now just how do we get to that number unless a whole lot of people die? Eliminate them?

If one huge government is such a bless, why are people in the EU not so happy about it ?
Start talking with people from Spain, Greece, Franc, Portugal, Italy about how great one big government is.
Or people from the former USSR, take it from someone who has been behind the Iron Curtain and also knows what EU integration has done...it sucks !

if we are ever to join a galactic federation, we have to possess the capacity to act/speak as one planet at any given moment. even if that only means a one world government for the entirety of one hour out of every five decades.

HOWEVER, whether you want to accept this fact or not...a "limited" number of people would be beneficial. Do you think that our current over-population is a positive? It sure is NOT. Fact: Less people on this planet would be a good thing. (Obviously I don't have a solution how to create "less" people on a planet...I am talking about the principle here that less people are better than an overcrowded planet).
When EVER has nationalism, patriotism, separate states, borders, separate government and separate political systems benefited ANYONE?
