"COMMON SENSE RENEWED" by "Robert Christian"
This book was written in 1986 by Robert Christian. This
is the pseudonym of a private American citizen who has
chosen to remain anonymous "in order to avoid useless
controversy and to better focus attention on his thoughts
rather than on himself." The true identity of the author
(as well as the identities of the people he represents)
remains unknown.

In 1986, copies of the book were distributed to several
thousand "political officials and shapers of public
opinion" throughout the world. All members of the United
States Congress received copies, as did Reagan and
Gorbachev.

The first edition of this book consists of one hundred
copies printed on durable paper and bound in leather.
These copies have been autographed by the author and are
in the possession of The Georgia Guidestones Foundation.
They will be given to donors who make major gifts towards
completion of the monument by the addition of additional
stones in languages not now represented.

Preface

At harvest time primitive farmers separate their grain by
beating the stalks with flails on a threshing floor. They
remove the loose straw, leaving a residue of grain, chaff,
and dust.

This mixture is purified by winnowing - tossing it into
the air to permit the empty husks and useless debris to be
carried away on the wind. The grain kernels fall back
where they can be recovered and put to use by the
community.

I was privileged to be born an American at a time when
our nation had achieved high levels of political liberty
and material comforts for our people. I have enjoyed the
benefits of our society and have had opportunity to
observe the passing scene from a vantage point which has
exposed me to human beings in all walks of life,
representing a wide spectrum of political, religious, and
economic views.

Having reached the harvest time of my own life, I feel a
duty to share with you a few thoughts gained in my brief
existence as a member of the human family.

Like primitive farmers, I place these ideas on the
threshing floor of the public forum where that which is
useless or in error - the straw, if you will - can be
separated by the flails of critical discussion. I am
hopeful that when the residual chaff has been winnowed
away there will remain a few kernals which can be added to
the store of human wisdom in a manner that will contribute
to the general welfare.

I have no pretensions to authority. I am a plain citizen,
without scholarly stature or political experience. I
present herein certain views dealing with a variety of
subjects. Some of these thoughts, particularly those which
relate to my private concepts of the cosmos and of our
role within it, may offend certain of my readers because
of seeming conflicts with their own cherished beliefs and
traditions. It is not my intent to stir up controversy.
Each of us is entitled to private views gained through
personal experience. I do not challenge the opinion of
anyone in these matters. I simply present my thoughts for
those who seek to review a variety of opinions when
dealing with controversial matters. Others may ignore
them. I have attempted to seek Truth beginning from a
starting point in space, and time, and cultural immersion
which was determined for me by the accidents of human
history. Each life is unique. We follow individual
pathways to the grave. We cannot control many of the
elements which determine our destinies and simply do the
best we can with the opportunities which come our way.

I seek that degree of toleration and understanding which
you would grant a family member whose philosophical views
seem at first glance to be outlandish or out of step with
the beliefs of others.

If you cannot agree with my views I ask only that you
will base your contrary opinions on solid evidence and
common sense, and that you will not permit your judgment
to be overwhelmed by unreasoning faith in a manner that
ignores honest evidence.

Collective human intelligence is capable of discovering
acceptable solutions for the problems which confront us.
We must work together to direct political and moral
influences through channels of wisdom, not channels of
brute force, or ambition.

Using common sense as our guide we must unite with the
entire human family in establishing a limited world
government capable of settling international disputes
through a system of law. We must establish as a parallel
objective the building of an enduring balance between
human activities and the world of nature.

These will be first steps in creating an enduring Age of
Reason.

Looking forward to more WFS...I´ve done a tad bit of research into the guidestones, and the ominous message it brings to mankind. It will be interesting to see the reasoning this man has given for such un-Christian propositions.
Joh 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Was this guy killed or something? I am seriously in need of this book.
“Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift, that no one ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you’re stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap, which you mindlessly wolf down once there’s nothing else left. Sure, once in a while, there’s a Peanut Buttercup, an English toffee, but it’s gone too fast and the taste is too fleeting. You end up with nothing but broken bits and teeth shattering nuts, which if you’re desperate enough to eat, all you’ve got left is an empty paper box filled with useless brown paper wrappers.”
