DUE TO the bombing incidents that have occurred over the past days, Indonesian President Joko Widodo calls for passage of a bill as soon as possible that would revise anti-terrorism laws and give authorities more powers aimed to prevent future attacks.
However, there is concern that these changes to the anti-terrorism law could bring about human rights violations by the authorities themselves in their quest to end terrorism.
If President Joko Widodo were to seek it, there is a better, more surefire solution for preventing future terrorist attacks. The method comes not from approaches utilizing weaponry, and not from the field of politics, but rather from the union of social science and quantum unified field theory.
President Joko Widodo could prevent terrorism in Indonesia by training his armed forces to form a Prevention Wing of the Military, comprised of Invincible Defense Technology experts. Field tested scientific studies show that large groups practicing the non-religious Transcendental Meditation (TM) and the advanced TM-Sidhi programs in a group twice a day generate a field effect that profoundly influences all within its vicinity. Militaries worldwide have field-tested this approach and are deploying it today.
The powerful, brain-based Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) is aptly named. The word invincible means incapable of being defeated, unconquerable. Defense means to defend and to protect. Technology is applied scientific knowledge.
The goal of IDT is to prevent enemies from arising. Once IDT is properly applied, Indonesia’s population would become safe from terrorism because there would be no enemies to fight. No enemies means no war, no terrorism, no nuclear war and full security, as well as happy and productive lives for everyone.
Extensive peer-reviewed research and military field-tests worldwide show that IDT brings about measurable decreases in war, terrorism, and crime, as well as improvements in quality of life, all of which are tangible signs of reduction of societal stress. These changes have been demonstrated statistically using measures such as reductions of terrorism and armed conflict, crime rates, accidents, hospital admissions, and infant mortality. (See: Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight (Retired, US Army), Dr. David Leffler, Duncan Brown, Dr. Carla Brown, and Arlene J. Schar (1 August 2017). Preventive Defense as the Ultimate Game Changer. Indian Defence Review.)
In highly stressed areas of the globe, establishment of large groups of IDT experts have also increased growth of prosperity and economic incentives. Creativity and entrepreneurship increase as well.
Also, on a global scale, when large groups of civilian experts gathered from 1983 to 1985, terrorism-related casualties decreased 72 percent and international conflict decreased 32 percent. These positive changes in social trends have taken place immediately after IDT was introduced. (For a research summary see: A New Role for the Military: Preventing Enemies from Arising-Reviving an Ancient Approach to Peace. Journal of Management & Social Science (JMSS), Fall 2009, Vol. 5, No. 2., pp. 153-162.)
The IDT approach has been used during wartime, resulting in reduced fighting, reduced war deaths, and reduced casualties, as well as improved progress toward resolving the conflict through peaceful means. IDT is totally unlike any other defense approach in that it does not use violence in an attempt to quell violence.
High stress levels within any nation ultimately create enemies. If dangerous levels of collective stress are reduced by applying IDT, then leaders will be more capable of finding orderly and constructive solutions to irresolute issues that have kept them at odds for generations.
With greater civic calm, citizens’ aspirations will rise, and a more productive, more balanced society will emerge. Then violence as a means for change and/or as an expression of discontent will naturally subside.
The Global Union of Scientists for Peace (GUSP) advocates the IDT approach. This non-profit organization hosted an international conference in Kiev, Ukraine last year. Lt. General (Ret.) Vasyl Krutov, former chief of the Ukraine Anti-Terrorism Center was among the impressive list of participants who spoke at or voiced their support for the conference.
Others included: President Joachim Chissano of Mozambique, who applied innovative IDT programs to end that nation’s civil war; retired Ecuadorian Lt. General José Villamil, who also applied IDT to end war between Ecuador and Peru; and Mr. Mohd Khalid Naseemi, the founder and Director-General of the Afghanistan Environmental Society.
IDT is a proven way for Indonesia to protect itself and to gain global respect by deploying a simple, low cost defense against terrorism, with minimal training needed for implementation. Once enemies become friends, there is no need to fight. Differences can be settled through peaceful diplomacy.
Recent events worldwide show that IDT is desperately needed. It works quickly, and there is no better solution for preventing terrorism and war. President Joko Widodo would be wise to immediately implement this program: eliminating terrorists by creating allies, and thereby creating lasting peace and prosperity for Indonesia.
