needs to be less people and there needs to be a unity with nature...basically I agree with all of the 'laws' given on the stones. We OBVIOUSLY can not run a world with all the people that we have...

I've read a bit on these stones, and am surprised the hysteria surrounding genocide, and other evils feared behind the anonymous creators. Frankly, I agree with every one of the 10 ideals, including a world population that is far lower than what we have today. The idea that the stones suggest genocide as the means for so accomplishing this goal is contradicted by the other ideals (or whatever you call the 10 New Age type commandments). These principles call for using reason, not blind faith, and following non-petty laws but not at the expense of forgoing justice. Accordingly, genocide is the last means I'd think was consistent with the goal of accomplishing population reduction. The principles are left for others to implement in accordance with reason and justice. What's wrong with that? Freedom is embraced, but anarchy (i.e., unfettered freedom) isn't. Individual freedom is to be balanced with needs of social groups. Frankly, I think we'd have a far better world if we followed these tenets.

As far as your thoughts on the genocide factor, I disagree. Genocide is now and has always been implemented by the controllers of nations. To assume that genocide is out of the realm of possibility in relation to the Georgia Guidestones is not logical to me. The only way for these "tenets" to come in to actuality is for the massive culling of humanity to take place.
