To ASI Supporters:

It’s more than a “Blue Wave.” The “Rainbow Wave” that Senator Elizabeth Warren speaks about can be seen in the “mindfulness” associated with Oprah Winfrey’s New Age movement. Our book Permanent Revolution has a whole section on this. The movement is huge. Look at this:

5th Annual Mindful Leadership Summit
November 1 - 4th, 2018
Washington, D.C.

Now is the time to Redefine Leadership.
There is an alternative to just leading from the top down.
It's leading from the inside out.

It sounds harmless, and there are many sincere and well-motivated people involved in this. But it’s really another “progressive” front, with a base in academia. One of the sponsors is the Buddhist-inspired Naropa University. One of the speakers is the Professor & Director of R&I Mindfulness Center at Brown University. Brown claims to be ranked 5th in the US for NIH (National Institutes of Health) grant funding on mindfulness ($10,445,940). Brown claims, “We are at a time in history when mindfulness research is rapidly expanding, and mindfulness has become a $1 billion industry in the United States alone.”  


That’s right: the university got more than $10 million in federal money to spend on Eastern-style meditation.

Consider one of the sessions:

Cultivating Racial Awareness: Diversity Starts with Leadership Not Policy. Racism remains one of the most rooted and painful impasses of our time. Discover how mindful awareness supports racial wellbeing and leadership transformation with the Racial Awareness Rubik™ — an understanding of our individual and collective racial conditioning and their systemic proliferation.

The session facilitator is Ruth King, a Meditation Teacher and Emotional Wisdom Author & Life Coach. She seems like a nice woman. But make no mistake: this is an effort to infiltrate Eastern-style meditation practices into the West.

Racism and ant-Semitism are serious problems But their elimination requires a conscious effort to judge and treat people as individuals, not as members of groups. Getting into a meditative state is not the answer. By the same token, a person should not be protected from criticism simply because of his or her membership in a group. In this context, we cannot fall into the trap of saying that criticism of Gerge Soros is automatically anti-Semitic. First of all, he is an atheist. Second, he is not a philanthropist; he is a hedge fund short seller whose fortune is being devoted to overturning the Judeo-Christian traditions of the West.   

We need clear thinking, not mindlessness. Read our book Permanent Revolution to understand more about this growing movement.
