The Georgia Guidestones are some what of a mystery.  Wanting to reduce the populations is  a scary thought, although the word used is maintain.

Limiting the population of the earth to 500 million will require the extermination of nine-tenths of the world's people.


  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.

"Limiting the population of the earth to 500 million will require the extermination of nine-tenths of the world's people."

I agree that is a scary thought; however, this was just an assumption of the author after reading the message on the guildestone.

I think another alternative to overpopulation that won't  cause anyone harm is to perhaps encourage  people (not force like in China) to Voluntarily have maybe about 1 to 2 kids or maybe even just adopt since there are always children in the world without parents and who need a home.  By doing this,  the world population would gradually and slowly reduce over many generations to a safe and stable number.  As a caveat I'm not in complete agreement with the 500 million or any particular ideal "manageable" number, since there are so many variables to take into account.
