I would think that dwindling numbers might cause a little self introspection. 
But then, maybe their problem is that they don't think they have a *little 
self* to introspect..

 I am on my way to a working meeting on campus right now about the movement but 
this division over ‘originalism’ is a communal rub and scrap in harnessing 
actionable change in cultural things that have evolved within the TM movement 
community.  It is extremely trying inside the movement right now.

On considering uncompromising and Strict Originalism, like with some strict TM

proponent I guess I would say, but that didn't mean that he prevailed. Not 
everybody on the court agreed with him, including many of the conservatives on 
some issues. And so while he was its principal proponent and theoretician, he 
didn't win a great deal of the time because he was not a consensus-builder. 
Other people were more willing to compromise than he was. He would have called 
that "faux-conservatism."”

"The Constitution that I interpret and apply is not living but dead, or as I 
prefer to call it, enduring. It means today not what current society, much less 
the court, thinks it ought to mean, but what it meant when it was adopted."

'Originalism',this becomes a useful critique for distinguishing the 
religiousfaith-and-belief-in- Maharishi conservative TM ideologic zealotry 
onthe one hand from progressive practitioner elements on the other hand who in 
experiencewould like to see things evolve and work out well for the TMmovement.
“Andthere's no such thing as an evolution of ideas and an evolution ofsociety. 
..He (Scalia) wouldn't buy that, ..He believed the same thing ininterpretation 
of statutes (TM Movement admin policy, guidelines, andinstruction), that the 
words (originalist) on the page are all thatcounts. That legislative history, 
that constitutional history, theydon't count much if at all. What matters is 
the intent at the time.To put it most bluntly, "I mean what I say and not any 
more orany less."

Standing like ConstitutionalOriginal-ists, the faith-in-Maharishi religionist 
TM'ers inside TM atthe top for decades have contended and winnowed things 
downfundamentally in their own minds that, “Fairfield is for those whohave 
'faith and belief' in Maharishi and everyone else should leaveus alone”.
That wish, that people without'faith-and-belief' should leave, would have to be 
taken apart andlooked at to see how it has actually gone down. A lot of 
meditatorshave come and left and some lot of meditators have stayed on fortheir 
own good reasons. Clearly the Dome group meditation numbers are really tiny.  
Donations to the University and undergraduate enrollment tight.  Has Bevan 
gotten his wish? That those who do not have'faith-and-belief in Maharishi', 
“..should leave and leave usalone”?

In zeal as 'Original-ists' having stoodin way of progressive elements also in 
the TM movement community thisis a lot like Scalia's camp has been on the 
Supreme Court inrestraining and obstructing societal evolution.The difference 
evidently is that thoughthere are a lot of opinions and feelings about how it 
should go forTM and many have their many firm 'Maharishi-saids', there 
evidentlyis not 'written' preamble, constitution guiding or bylaws governing TM 
thatpeople easily share.
Everyone seems to have their own listsof 'Maharishi-Saids' to stand on 
separately.
“..Andhe continued to be its (Originalism's) foremost exponent. From beinga
