    In the meantime, the current problems need addressing. The billionaires with visions can talk but we need action, not ever distant dreams. I'm still waiting for most of the stuff promised to us on Tomorrow's World.
    Won't take long to let the earth recover when its back down to just a few million inhabitants...

    Some secretive and apparently very rich and powerful people would appear to agree with this:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Guidestones

    In June 1979, a man using the pseudonym Robert C. Christian approached the Elberton Granite Finishing Company on behalf of "a small group of loyal Americans", and commissioned the structure. Christian explained that the stones would function as a compass, calendar and clock, and should be capable of withstanding catastrophic events. Joe Fendley of Elberton Granite assumed that Christian was "a nut" and attempted to discourage him by giving a quote several times higher than any project the company had taken, explaining that the Guidestones would require additional tools and consultants. Christian accepted the quote.[2] When arranging payment, Christian explained that he represented a group which had been planning the Guidestones for 20 years, and which intended to remain anonymous.[2]
    Inscriptions as follow:

    1.Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
    2.Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
    3.Unite humanity with a living new language.
    4.Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
    5.Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
    6.Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
    7.Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
    8.Balance personal rights with social duties.
    9.Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
    10.Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
    Conspiracy theorists love this stuff...
    Because feelings...

    Because it's completely common sense.
