#9 aside from being nearly worthless, one of the first things tyrants and monsters do is tear down monuments and art. And when rebuilding, people tear down structures to make homes out of.

Balance personal rights with social duties.

Or... Family planning with birthrate at or slightly above replacement (2.1-ish per parentpair).
If civilization is ever wiped out, then you might not have a ton of people to start with... Keeping it at arguably sustainable level when total world population is maybe 100M won't seem like a problem.

whoever designed #9 is an idiot. anything accurate in it is common sense. as far as the population limit goes, that has no basis in reality and is just a number pulled out of their @$$.

we can pack the whole human population into a small area if we wanted to, we already produce more than enough resources for everyone to be healthy.

the issues are mismanagement and greed fueled stupidity. until we learn as a society how to stop trusting evil and selfish hypocrites to make our decisions no growth limit will keep us from destroying ourselves.

In regards to #9 in the case that is ever needed, what is the likelihood that monument will still be standing or even legible? Yeah a couple planks of granite will save the human race. Gotta say I have my doubts.

#9 This is no guide to 'restarting society'. It's a bunch of liberal hogwash by wishful dreamers who hate humanity and WANT a apocalypse to reduce populations to under 500,000,000. AS IF people surviving an apocalypse would: worry about population maximum, implement any kind of reproduction limitation (they're going to want to repopulate as fast as possible), create a new language, need to be told to have fair laws or prize truth. After a real apocalypse it's going to just be survival of fittest. A much more helpful 'restarting society' guide would include imporatant guides for math, science and technology: electricity, light bulbs, plans for making fuels, newton's laws, etc. They do have a few astronomical bits which is nice but super minor (north star, solstices and equinoxes).

Clare, you never know. Maybe a devastating apocalypse is what it will take for humanity to learn from its mistakes. Instead of going full on kill or be killed, as you believe, people might finally realize war and greed aren’t the best ideals for a healthy society. And with a manageable population, maybe so many wouldn’t fall through the cracks, and people would learn to value life above all else. Hopefully humanity will redeem itself instead of sealing its own coffin with the same bs that likely will cause such an event in the first place.

Roberta, gen x, actually. And barely past the previous generation threshold. Also from a military family with members who fought in every war dating back to the Civil War. I seriously doubt you are that old either so I don’t see your point. Wanting a better world free of war and greed is not unique to millennials. I’m not actually sure why this post has everyone so riled up anyway. Seems to hit a lot of nerves of people who don’t want humanity to change for the better. That is mind boggling to me. But I suspect that attitude comes from out of touch elderly people who are severely threatened by the idea of a peaceful, greed-less society, and who couldn’t care less about the state of the world they leave to future generations.

Martin,
Ah, yes, I see now. It's all the Boomers' fault. You do realize that we weren't even born for so many of the things that your generation blames us for, don' t you? Yes, we've managed to make our fair share of mistakes, but your statement about us betrays your generational bigotry.

#9 Georgia Guide Stones is the name of them, wonder why the left off the 'Guide Stones' part of it. Trying to hide that they're authoritarian Sh**heads who can't stand that other people have different beliefs and ideas. f*** those arrogant f***s. Saying Everyone has to 'Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.'
Who the hell do they think they are telling people how to think, what to believe and how to act. F*** those @**holes.
