This new technology is the Transcendental Meditation program of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Until now, our administration of criminal justice has been geared to control conduct by coercion and constraint, which are, quite simply, expressions of force. We even refer to this mechanism as “law enforcement.” But force operates on the surface level of behavior without really affecting the person and, consequently, rarely has lasting results. So, when the threat of force is removed or not readily perceived, proscribed forms of behavior are quickly resumed.In the present work by George Ellis, we begin to witness the uncovering of this secret in the darkness of a maximum security unit through the introduction of the simple but profound Transcendental Meditation program. Mr. Ellis describes this phenomenon from the viewpoint of the inmate- but, regardless of our own perspective, we must appreciate the basic truth that he brings to light about prison life, about the ineffectiveness of current rehabilitation programs, and about this unique TM technology that establishes a new and very simple paradigm for resolving the problem of crime at the level of its ultimate cause.http://www.amazon.com/George-A.-Ellis...
