is that you end up being governed by your inferiors." ~ Plato

The Premise Behind the HOLISTIC Political Paradigm: NATURAL LAW

About Dr. John Hagelin

John Hagelin, Ph.D. is a world-renowned quantum physicist, educator, public policy expert, and leading proponent of peace. Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at Maharishi University of Management The Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace

"Government today is torn by conflicting national interests and faced with seemingly intractable challenges. This is because governmental theory and policy are rooted in obsolete 19th century principles. As a quantum physicist, I offer a profound and fresh new foundation for governmental administration — one based upon the most modern and comprehensive scientific understanding of how Nature functions. Unified quantum field theories have revealed the ultimate unity underlying all of life, and provide deep and practical insights into how to skillfully administer and harmonize society's diverse tendencies — with the same organizing intelligence displayed throughout Nature.

America's problems are human problems — crime, drug dependency, domestic violence, even pollution result from a narrowness of vision that fails to comprehend life's essential unity. The only way we can overcome these problems is through the expansion of consciousness — education that actualizes the full potential of the brain. I have spent the last quarter century conducting cutting edge research in unified quantum field theories, and have led an international scientific investigation into the nature and origin of human consciousness. The conclusion of these 25 years of research is that human consciousness, at its deepest level, and the unified field which underlies the whole of Nature, are one and the same.

This means that human awareness, fully expanded, naturally comprehends the ultimate unity underlying all of humanity, earth's complex ecosystems, and indeed, the entire universe. It also means that the most profound appreciation of life's essential unity, described by the greatest physicists and philosophers of all traditions, is available to everyone through proper education.

With this direct experience of life's essential unity, and with maximally expanded comprehension, individuals naturally behave in their own best long-term interests while promoting the interests of society as a whole — action fully aligned with natural law.

Thus today, 225 years after the birth of our nation, with our far more complete and profound scientific understanding of natural law, we can practically fulfill our Founders' dream of a self-governing nation, where all citizens naturally respect and promote each others' rights to life, liberty and happiness."

Dr. John Hagelin, www.hagelin.org/about.html


"Our Governments are merely reflections of us - as quantum physics is proving - reality is simply a "mirror" of our own internal existence.

"If we desire change for our governments we must make those changes within ourselves so that we can see it reflected back to us in our Governments. If we want to end the wars, stop the fighting, manipulation and greed we need to heal our own fears, conflicts, and lack of integrity.

"We must let our governments know that we no longer need them to think and make decisions FOR US but rather be accountable TO US which will happen as we each choose to take back our own Power and Responsibility for our nation.

"We also must begin to follow the principles of Natural Law instead of opposing them if we wish to sustain ourselves through these upcoming years and beyond. "Embracing these ideas and concepts will create the foundations to restore our own Empowerment and True Freedom. We can make the changes to bring our Nation and our Government back to its original intention - Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness through the alignment with Natural Law.

"Healing our Government through healing ourselves - one person at a time."

Manual for a Perfect Government
How to Harness the Laws of Nature to
Bring Maximum Success to Government

by Dr. John Hagelin

Dr. Hagelin is a leading proponent of using the latest scientific discoveries for solving America's problems. In his recent book, Manual for a Perfect Government, Dr. Hagelin shows how the combined application of modern science and the ancient Vedic science of consciousness has profound implications for the science of governance, and provides practical public policies that harness the laws of nature to solve acute social problems and to profoundly enhance governmental effectiveness. Introduction: New Knowledge for a New Era.

This book is about perfection in government, and the surprising ease with which it can be achieved. It shows how any government can enlist the support of natural law -- to solve acute social problems and bring unprecedented progress and prosperity to their nation.

In recent years, modern science has gained a deep understanding of the profound organizing principles through which nature governs the universe. These principles uphold order in all physical and biological systems, and support the life and evolution of innumerable species. According to the latest scientific research, these same natural laws and profound organizing principles can be directly applied to human society, to alleviate social problems and raise government leadership to a whole new level. This application is through technologies and programs that harness specific laws of nature, and that bring the whole of national life into greater accord with natural law. This Manual explains these modern technologies, the principles behind them, and the extensive scientific research on their unique effectiveness.

Government leaders today face serious challenges. Global competition, the intensity of change, pervasive social stress, and numerous factors pose obstacles to government that are historically unprecedented. Although some nations are adapting to these challenges more successfully than others, few government leaders are satisfied with the level of progress, quality of life, health, safety, and security of their people.

Every age brings new demands. And new demands require new knowledge. Although the fundamental principles behind this book have been known for some years within the physical and biological sciences, researchers from these cutting edge fields have yet to translate these profound scientific principles into meaningful social policy. As a consequence, political scientists and government leaders have been left on their own to devise social programs and government policies on the basis of what are essentially 19th century principles. This Manual takes the latest developments in our scientific knowledge, and translates this knowledge into practical social policy.


"I consider John Hagelin to be one of the foremost thinkers of our time. His comprehensive understanding, deep insight and extraordinary vision lay a groundwork for the highest ideals in all of us to be realized. His words are important to hear, and I wish everyone could.”
~ Neale Donald Walsch, bestselling author of Conversations with God

“This pioneering book brings challenging, controversial, and promising theory and research in quantum physics and consciousness to bear on key questions of governance and public policy. Citizens and public officials alike will find it a stimulating and valuable book, and the quality of public political discourse would benefit considerably from widespread reading of it.”
~ David V. Edwards, Professor of Government, The University of Texas at Austin; author of Creating a New World Politics and Practicing American Politics

“John Hagelin is a thoughtful, energetic and compassionate man who takes democracy seriously. He has sought and proposed solutions to some of our country's most pressing problems. As a candidate for the U.S. presidency, he crisscrossed the United States speaking out for peace, justice and a better world. He has always been guided by reason and decency.”
~ David Krieger, President, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation; author of Choose Hope: Your Role in Waging Peace in the Nuclear Age

“John Hagelin is one of the most eloquent voices for a 21st Century politics infused with spiritual principles.”
~ Marianne Williamson, bestselling author of The Healing of America and A Return to Love

“The most urgent and important need today is to create a proper Earth government. John Hagelin is providing a necessary blueprint for government which should be read by the United Nations and all Heads of State.”
