I've been inspired by another post to start a conversation about the Georgia Guidestones, and particularly their message about population control.

With seven billion + people in the world, getting down to five hundred million would be an incredible drastic cull. One in fourteen people would survive. If this came to be, would you be one of the chosen? Why or why not? Where do you think populations would be culled first?

I don't think I'd make it, as I have a limited education, currently attending university, no science or advanced healthcare background. My only chance of survival would lie in the fact that I live in Canada, which is not over populated; so, if the overseer's of the cull are looking to spread populations around I might be okay. If an elite group is chosen, I'm done. If the method is to unleash a plague, who knows.

How about everyone else? What are your real chances to escape a global shift in population from seven billion to five hundred million?

I think I would have a decent chance at surviving if the cull was done by some type of hunting/execution method as I have a lot of places I can go with my family.

However, the only manner in which I think a culling of this size could happen would be a highly contagious disease, in which case nobody would be safe and there is really no amount of preparedness you can have to avoid it. Nukes and natural disasters could not kill off the world like that...disease could.

Am I one of the 500 million? Ha. Sorry about the rest of you guys, but Anne Hathaway and I will be known as Adam and Eve in five thousand years.

I live in (relatively) rural Ontario. So if the SHTF I have about three different locations I plan on getting my ass too so I can wait things out with my family. Between the bunch of us we could be relatively self sufficient. So I am not worried too much.

Obviously any population reduction "plan" is going to target urban centers. If I lived in the GTA for instance I would have an escape plan mapped out. You will likely never have to use it but it's good to be prepared, and not stuck northbound on the expressway out of the city ala the walking dead.

To answer the OP if I would survive the "cull" in a formal sense, no, absolutely not. I have high school education, am self employed, and have never fit with the "system". I would be culled fairly quick if the criteria were based on what it likely would be.

I'm not sure i'd want to live if my family & friends weren't alive too.

Good point. Would a lot of people be sacrificing themselves if their family, by blood or by choice, didn't make the cut? Would this leave spots open for others?

Would the powers behind the cull want the remaining five hundred million being depressed and lonely without their loved ones, or would their be measures in place to ensure the whole world wasn't grief stricken?

I wouldn't want to be one.
Unless it's all the elites and the corrupt people that get the chop.

Who would want to stay on this planet with those still in control?

Count me out.

Does anyone think they'd have a chance if it came down to a eugenics project, another thing hinted on the Guidestones?

Me? Likely not. My heritage is a mix. I do have some immunities that would be helpful, but others could have these as well.

Yeah, she's not ugly.
On topic, I'll try like hell to be one of the people they don't know about outside of the 500 million.

Of course this is wholly dependent on the methodology they employ.

Perhaps entire countries won't be targeted / affected by it. So if you live there then you're one of the survivors.

*Assuming of course this is a legitimate threat.

I was supposed to be...



LOL

Maybe. But probably not. I would volunteer as slave or helper or enter the Hunger Games or something... I think I could be re-educated and salvaged. I'd like to think that it was my destiny to be a part of important big changes. But since it is all such a dynamic and chaotic system, processes can be delayed or sometimes even aborted altogether. I have a strong attraction to the idea of an elite group, but like everybody else, I also often wish I could win the lottery...

So who knows!

You are looking at 7% of the total population on earth surviving. So odds are, no matter what anyone says in this thread about survival or their location, we will all be dead if the guidestones came true.

Definitely, but it's fun to speculate.

By what, extermination camps? Love to see that Utopia in action. Oh, we already have.

I would and I have a very good reason why.
Revenge.

On Topic - No, I wouldn't be one of the few. If they picked on genetics, good general health, eye sight, etc, I'd have a good chance....except for cancer. It's runs in my family and I'm just waiting for my turn to come. If they picked random cities to eradicate, I'd be fine. I live out in the sticks. I think they will pick the elites, scientists, military leaders, CEOs,.....

I was on the list but got pushed to 500,000,000 and 1.

Someone has to die for me to be saved.

I'm thinking we could do with one less Kardashian.

If you're in America then it's unlikely you will be a survivor - at 4.5-1 survival rates yes the odds are technically in your favour but I wouldn't want to live there when it happens.

You might want a UN employee tag for extra security.

I may be a closet Malthusian as I sometimes think a drastic reduction in population is the only sensible way to sustain human (and animal) life on Earth. It's a given we cannot continue to grow exponentially so what are the options? People aren't willing (or smart enough) to limit themselves to having 2 or less children. We WILL hit a point of critical mass where competition for resources will guarantee war - is that better than willingly subjecting ourselves to some form of culling if it means saving our own species?

I feel all life is sacred as is free will but am at a complete loss for how to address this question.
