Safeguard the World
peace-creating experts in the United States
Successful defense depends
not only on the level of stress within the collective consciousness
of any given nation, but also on the stress within distant nations.
Terrorist attacks can be planned and managed, and invasive warfare
launched, from nations even a world away. To protect against such
global threats, a global influence of peace is required.
For this reason, the second
stage of the plan in the United States is to host a group of 8,000
peace-creating experts. By the frequently verified peace-creating
formula, this group will be large enough to create a measurable
influence of harmony and coherence worldwide. As mentioned in the
research section, the only group of 8,000 previously gathered on
an on-going basis (1988-1990 in India) accompanied the end of major
fighting in the world, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the sudden
dissolution of the Cold War.
This group will be established in phases:
Phase I. A permanent group of 500 professional peacemakers—experts in specific peace-promoting technologies of consciousness—will be established immediately near the campus of Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, where 1,500 students, faculty, and staff already practice these technologies (see the University website at www.mum.edu). The resulting, combined group of well over 17,00 peacemakers in close geographic proximity is enough, according to previous published research, to measurably reduce violence and promote positive trends in the United States.
Cost: Approximately $5 million to sustain this group of 500 for two years, of which the full $5 million has already been raised.
Phase II. The above core group of 500 professional peacemakers will be expanded to 2,000, leading to a total group size of approximately 4,000—enough for a pronounced effect of peace and positivity in the U.S. and throughout the hemisphere.
Incremental cost of 1,500 peacemakers: Approximately $15 million for two years.
Phase III. Maharishi University of Management will expand its student enrollment by 1,500 national and international students, resulting in approximately 2,000 additional peacemakers (including faculty and support staff).
Cost of 1,500 full and partial scholarships: Approximately $25 million per year.
Phase IV. An additional group of 2,000 professional peacemakers will be added to the above group of 2,000, bringing the total to 8,000 peacemakers—the square root of one percent of the world’s population, and enough, according to published research, to dramatically reduce global violence and promote positive trends throughout the world.
Simultaneously, as a safety factor for America, an additional group of 2,000 professional peacemakers will be created in or near Washington, D.C., to create a powerful influence of peace and coherence in the nation’s capital, where decisions are made on a daily basis that directly affect the destiny of the entire world.
Cost of two groups of 2,000 professional peacemakers: Approximately $40 million for two years.
Ultimately, we seek to establish University of World Peace, built on a large, beautiful tract of land in California, where a permanent group of 8,000 peacemakers will be established. The University of World Peace is designed to counterbalance the global proliferation of military academies and graduate war colleges dedicated to advancing the science of war. In contrast to these military academies, the University of World Peace will be dedicated solely to the prevention of war and the promotion of peace, and to creating a new profession in the world—that of professional peacemaker—individuals with the responsibility and capability to create and sustain world peace. (The cost of supporting a University of Peace, including partial scholarship support for up to 8,000 students, is approximately $120,000,000 per year.)
Maintenance per peace-creating expert per month: $300
