With George Orwell's book 1984 retaining a spot on Amazon's Best Sellers list, we may safely assume that the masses are paying attention to his warnings more than ever before.
Orwell's Doublespeak abounds as government programs are named the opposite of what they actually do (Clean Air Act; No Child Left Behind), radiation from the nuclear meltdown in Japan is 'good' for us (and not harmful at all, silly gooses!), and perpetual war is "humanitarian intervention."
Apparently bombs are 'good' for us, too, as the ruling elite - the powers-that-be - continue implementation of a one-world-government and the draconian population control measures they're psychotically putting in place.
Can we read such intentions carved in stone? Yes, upon the Georgia Guidestones near Elberton, Georgia. The first 'guide', 'message', or 'commandment' is:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Obviously, to maintain such a number, the
world's population would have to be weeded out first and it's difficult not to see current wars, radiation leaks, contagions, natural disasters which may not be totally natural at all, mutations caused by chemicals including those in plastics, genetically altered foods, and other health-impairing and death-dealing tactics as being part of an overarching agenda - more of Earth's dwindling resources for those who are left, you see.
Plus, President Obama's constant capitulation to the far right's austerity cuts
which will decimate further America's middle and lower classes may unfortunately be part of this agenda. Hate to type it for I voted for him, too. We were given no viable choice otherwise, were we?
(Note on the Guidestones: pretending to rewrite God's Ten Commandments doesn't wash with Protestant me.)
If you wish to read the other nine 'guides' on the Guidestones, and the little that is known of their secretive creation and purpose, try Radio Liberty.
The few clues about who is responsible for designing the standing stones and having them erected seem to point toward the Rosicrucians but if any reader has a better informed idea, please let me know in a Comment or by contacting me at judecowell at gmail dot com.
Apparently there are those who won't allow humankind to shake off the Utopian vision and tiresome shackles of the 18th century's Age of Reason where we'll all run around in loincloths. (Remember Bush-Cheney-mainstream media touting that Osama bin Laden wanted to send us back to the Stone Age? Guess that sandal is actually on the other foot - and it's a boot.)
Well, Age of Enlightenment my patootie! Much of what we've gotten so far from 1993's Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune has been the negative/shadow side of '18Cap'...smug or strong-armed paternalism! That doesn't sound enlightened to me, only business as usual from those in power who wish to stay in power.
As you know, in a Mundane Astrology horoscope, Uranus and Neptune volunteer to bring us good and new ideas for society. Their partnership was in the spotlight all through 1993 at their Great Conjunction/s in the 18 to 20 degree range of Capricorn. And yes, transiting Pluto will eventually plod through those degrees since Mr. Hades now lurks in the first decanate of the sign of government, law, and business - Saturn-ruled Cap.
Then as Pluto approaches the duo's Great Conjunction degrees, he begins to form what will be midpoint pictures between the three outer, generational, transformational planets in our solar system:
Uranus/Neptune = Pluto: remaining at the mercy of external circumstances without attempting a firm stand; abandoning resistance; a necessity to give in; great losses; calamities and catastrophes; the Big Picture demands a certain course of action which must be followed - very little option to do
Uranus/Pluto = Neptune: deep study of a specialized subject; delving into supernatural realms; unfulfilled wishes; fatigue; neuroses; sympathy.
Neptune/Pluto = Uranus: adventurous, mystical, and supernatural experiences; peculiar discoveries.
(Ebertin; Tyl; any, all, or none may apply.)

Well, it's all unsettling and depressing, I agree, and makes following a spiritual path of faith the only viable answer for keeping one's sanity. Bible reading and prayer are always great ideas, of course, or how about a Bible-based, modestly-priced book I reviewed on Amazon called Cosmic Conflict?
Because that is the higher realm underneath which we now labor on Planet Earth, the Lesson Book of the Universe. Unfallen beings on unfallen worlds are watching Earth with great and compassionate interest: how will you act under the Cosmic Microscope?
