Clearly someone has been watching far too many fantastical "space" propaganda lately.... So much to learn and so little time.

I am very sick of useless officials!
Yet you want more of it with an N.W.O??
Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
So more useless officials ruling you and your beliefs?
No thanks...I'll choose freedom from tyranny any day of the week.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely!
Why I Agree with the Georgia Guidestones to a NWO...
No more useless officials
we have seen what big government does - oppress and ruin everyone and everything.
It means New World Order which is very vague and just means the world will have a new order.

I always found the Guidestones fascinating. One day I would like to go down and see them in person. The story a while back about the squares with numbers on the corners being added or removed a while back caught my eye too.....
As to the list, some of it sounds all well and good, but I find it would be difficult to achieve, just like the thread about utopia, it just can't happen because we are human and inherently flawed.
For instance #5 and 6. Fair Laws and Courts....sounds great, where do I sign up? Problem is, how do we guarantee it will be fair and just. Whether it be one court to rule all or many, the people with power and influence always get preferential treatment, it has been that way since laws were first introduced, and I fear it will always be so.
#8 Balance Personal Rights with Social Duties......this one has be a bit perplexed. What type of social duties are being referred to here, and what personal rights must be "balanced". I read that as some rights may be taken away for the good of the collective.....and to me that isnt good, as who decides what personal rights must be nixed....I am one for keeping my rights, because I believe they were granted to me from God.
Do not have the time right now to go through all of them, but will be back later to check in on the thread. thanks for posting....

After reading your OP, it reminded me, of sci-fi movies, and it seems every single advanced being/race has a structure set up just as you describe, world councils, structured and maintained pretty spot on to these stones it would seem. Could this be the next step to further human advancement and evolution?
It seems bad like you say when you look only at the surface of it all, but maybe some parts of it "do" make sense. Interesting to think about.

While you are correct, sadly look around, I honestly wonder the true ratio of people who help others out and the people who don't and only think selfishly.
Because I don't see the majority being those that care about others.
I see more people who only care about themselves ( which is normal in times of crisis ) than I do seeing people with the resources making any exhausted efforts to help others out.
Seems humans are forgetting how to be humane.

It doesn't matter. You can't let others lack of caring make you stop caring. Or their lack of humanity. When humane thinking is hard to find, it's never more important.
