Georgia Guidestones destroyed by an explosion – #conspiracy
The Georgia Guidestones are not any extra. After surviving random incidents of vandalism for a few years, at 4am this morning an explosive machine was detonated by as-yet unknown people, fully shattering one of many 4 principal pillars of the trendy megalithic monument. And as a result of vital quantity of structural injury this brought on, since then officers have now levelled the remainder of the stones as effectively.
Barely a month in the past, I wrote concerning the enduring means of the Georgia Guidestones to terrify conspiracy theorists, after a Republican Georgia gubernatorial candidate, Kandiss Taylor, made the demolition of the monument – which she claimed was ‘Satanic’ – one among her main marketing campaign guarantees.
This place will little doubt put some concentrate on Taylor for probably instigating the incident. Nonetheless, the checklist of potential perpetrators could be an extended one: whereas the Guidestones have been actually reviled by the burgeoning right-wing/Christian conspiracy crowd, revelations in recent times that the unique thriller architect (pseudonymously often called ‘R.C. Christian’) was virtually actually one Herbert Kersten, a Republican supporter with an alleged historical past of racist remarks, and assist for former KKK chief David Duke and the eugenicist views of Nobel Prize-winning physicist William Shockley, might maybe simply as simply have made the monument a goal of left-wing activists.
Personally, the destruction of the Georgia Guidestones saddens me. Whereas the person behind them appears to have held some significantly odious views, for probably the most half the monument itself had a optimistic message of dwelling in concord with nature (Kersten was, surprisingly, additionally an ardent conservationist…he would possibly maybe be seen as an early ‘eco-fascist’) and never screwing issues up the following time round, if humanity survives any future apocalyptic occasion. On the flip-side, the Guidestones did include some hints of his extra terrible views – the instruction ‘Information copy properly, bettering health and variety’ sits quite uncomfortably as soon as one is conscious of his alleged eugenicist leanings.
Little question too, the truth that the Georgia Guidestones included archaeoastronomical ideas and seems to have been impressed by Masonic myths (see my article ‘Past the Apocalypse: The true message of the Georgia Guidestones‘ for a full clarification) made the Guidestones an enchanting creation for me personally. It was in some ways a contemporary murals, impressed by historical ideas and myths.
It was additionally a piece that took expert craftmanship by these commissioned to create, from its development by way of to the sandblasted engravings upon them – a supply of a lot pleasure to numerous households within the space who had been concerned in its creation, who will little doubt be devastated to see this act of vandalism destroying that legacy.
From what I’ve seen on social media although, there may be widespread celebrating concerning the Guidestones’ demolition by braindead conspiracy theorists and Fundamentalist Christians who wrongly consider the monument to be ‘Satanic’ (there’s some critical irony in the truth that it was apparently created by a racist Republican). Others with extra tempered views would possibly nonetheless see the demolition of the stones as total maybe the perfect factor that might have occurred, in mild of the archaic racist views of the person behind them.
Both means, the Georgia Guidestones are gone.
