The Crime Vaccine

Practice of Transcendental MeditationThe Crime Vaccine - How to End the Crime Epidemic


By Jay B. Marcus

This book offers a new approach to crime using Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programme in prisons, and for the prevention of crime in society.

Jay Marcus, a respected American lawyer and expert on legal ethics, presents a convincing and well-documented argument that Maharishi's programmes can act like a 'vaccine' and make fundamental changes in the human physiology, effectively 'immunizing' the individual against the development of criminal tendencies.

With the 'inoculation' of only a small percentage of the general population; the whole society gains protection against the crime epidemic.

Synopsis


"Attorney and human development expert Jay Marcus says that the basis of crime is the stress and tension that characterizes the crime-prone individual. Treat that stress and you will reduce criminal tendencies.

He backs up this bold statement by citing published scientific studies that show that criminal tendencies can, in fact, be reduced. After surveying the various models of criminal behavior and treatment over the centuries in the opening chapters, Marcus introduces his own. He compares the crime epidemic to epidemics of disease, and says that the treatment is much the same as other epidemics: vaccinate a certain percentage of the population with a crime vaccine. The particular "vaccine" that he discusses is the Transcendental Meditation program, introduced to the West nearly four decades ago by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi of India.

Marcus says that, more than any other meditative technique, this approach has been shown scientifically to change an individual's physiology. The key is to immunize those with crime-prone physiology against the buildup of stress and criminal tendencies. Even more remarkably, Marcus draws an interesting parallel with the Salk vaccine for polio. He points out that not only did the Salk vaccine inoculate individuals but also once 65 percent of children received the vaccine, the virus ceased to circulate in most of the United States.

Similarly, more than forty studies show that once a threshold percentage of the population practices the Transcendental Meditation technique in a particular community, crime declines significantly in the whole community. He refers to this as "herd immunity." THE CRIME VACCINE concludes by addressing the obvious question: If there is an effective crime vaccine, why hasn't it been more widely applied?"

Reviews


Refreshing Approaching to solving America's Crime Problem

Mr. Marcus has carefully and thoroughly provided a logical and well researched explanation for the root cause of crime. In my experience with juvenile delinquents, everything that Mr. Marcus says holds true and the true beauty of it is in its simplicity! After delving into the root cause of crime, Mr. Marcus then provides information on solutions, using a preventative approach, as well as rehabilitative one. I would like to give a copy of this book to everyone involved in law enforcement, Departments of Correction, juvenile justice and criminal justice. It would definitely have them thinking beyond the prevailing theories regarding crime. The Crime Vaccine makes so much sense in an area in which our nation has senselessly thrown so much money resulting in virtually no progress.
