NU SOCIETY IN A NU AGE Creating the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth This presentation spells out a step-by-step process of correcting the corrections system in order to correct the society, as follows: Our corrections system is by far the largest in the world, with 25% of all prisoners in the world in our prisons, even though we only have 5% of the worlds population. PEACE PLEASE proposes that through our experimental prison program called Project Nu Life: 1. we can create a model program that trains prisoners in the behaviors of a responsible citizen so that they do not return to crime and prison 2. which will thereby become a model for systematically reducing crime in the larger society 3. which will thereby become a model for reducing law enforcement, security measures, courts, jails, and prisons 4. which will thereby become a model for restructuring the larger society based on the model of this successful prison program. How would this work? Project Nu Life provides: Twelve Essential Services to Prevent Released Prisoners from Returning to Crime and Prison 1. training in the behaviors of a responsible citizen 2. job training and jobs 3. low-income and rent-to-own housing 4. financial assistance 5. health insurance 6. literacy training 7. a support network 8. seeing prisoners as good people with bad behaviors, not as bad people 9. forgiveness and non-condemnation 10. mutually supportive male-female relationships 11. encouraging our prisoners to strive for a higher purpose in life than the accumulation of material possessions 12. a retirement income
