Concerned Kansan

Hays, KS

As a citizen of Smith County, Kansas, I am concerned on what to expect from the TM'ers infiltrating our county. What should we expect? Is there anything we should be doing to prepare ourselves or fight their entrance into our area? What have the impacts been to the Fairfield area both positive and negative? Thanks in advance.

What you have to worry about, in general, is that th TM'ers will show up and start businesses, build and buy houses and contribute to your local tax base through construction, food, clothing and other purchases. Then they will start playing tennis and other sports and go to movies. They will generally be cheerful and although not many will go to really conservative churches some will go to some churches. At some point you will forget that they are meditators and realize that they are just people with bills and kids who are trying to live a good life and have found that doing the TM thing gives them more energy and a positive outlook. Then you will be trading jokes with them and probably showing them how to deal with your local weather... That's about it.

I live in Fairfield so I'll give you the not so "cheery side." I worked in a bookstore cafe for several months. Most of the Tm'ers were not at all friendly, mostly rude. Sometimes you get that with people who think they are in the right--reminds me of certain religous groups. There were a couple, however, that I did like. If you want to know more of TM'ers, you might have to do a little research into their religion (although they don't call it that-- I'm basing that opinion on their Hindu rituals and such). I believe we have to accept everybody and be polite--to an extent. Recently, a farm family is being drove off their century-year old farm because the TM'ers want it for a park. Hope this helps,

Do the TM'ers attempt to take over your local county/city governments and adapt laws/ordinances to suit their needs? That would be my biggest concern with them.
