One such example of the under-the-radar eugenics progress in more recent times is the Georgia Guidestones- a huge granite monument erected in Elbert County, Georgia. Commissioned in 1979 by a man under the pseudonym R.C. Christian, the tablets list ten guidelines for a “New World Order.” Specifically, it is commandment number two which deals with eugenics most directly: “Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.” Although a favorite topic of discussion for conspiracy theorists who claim that the Guidestones are the work of some variety of Masonic secret society, it cannot be denied that there is a group at work which support very heavily the principles of eugenics, and consider it a necessity in their ideal world order.
Further research into R.C. Christian’s work shows that he is the author of “Common Sense Renewed” a work which echoes the same basic ideals as those etched into the Guidestones. Most notably, he dedicates an entire chapter to “Guiding Human Reproduction.” His specific plan outlines a method such that the State will control human breeding in a way that human stock is improved and behavior can be selected for which is beneficial for the State itself. This goes to show that eugenics is far from dead- it may not be at the forefront of politics today, but it is still very much a relevant topic in our society. Although the culture has changed since the heyday of the eugenics movement, it’s long-reaching principles are still fresh in the minds and hearts of those who support it today; these individuals are still striving to bring about the installation of a modern eugenics policy, and they believe that it is vital to the progression of the human race.
