OVERVIEW

The importance of political sciences
The purpose of studying political science is how to best organize human beings in order to achieve more peace and happiness in their lives. This has been the accepted view of the role of political science since the time of Confucianism. In order to improve the world, one must improve the country; In order to improve the country, the individual must improve the people, and in order to improve the people, the individual must be improved. If the individual can master himself, then the family tends to be perfected; And from the family the influence is transmitted to the people; And then from the people to the country and to the world. An abstract comparison of the political constitutions of different countries, their political parties and their customs is impossible to help a person improve as a human being. So, if the field of political science is restricted only to this kind of study, the real purpose of political science will be defeated. Meditation reveals hidden potentials and improves human capacity in all walks of life. Therefore, it seems impossible to ignore that the practice of meditation should be added to the study of political science. By knowing the organizations, in addition to developing the inner hidden capabilities, a person grows in better qualities and capabilities. This is what will achieve the goal of studying political science, and complement and accomplish its broader field. Therefore, it is suggested that a few minutes daily of Transcendental Meditation be added to the study of political science.
Politics will remain a tool for social elites to manage the problems facing societies, which are generated by development, and for this it is an advanced science, to which life adds every day a new summary of the local and international human experience in managing people’s affairs. This knowledge acquires a special importance in this stormy circumstance that the Arabs live in all their countries from their surroundings to their gulf. It is the tool that lights the way to put the matter into dispute between the conflicting groups in the right place, and to reach solutions to their problems in which everyone sees that they serve him. Politics is the way to put the train on the right track, because it teaches them how to manage their affairs for the good of all of them, and in this they save them from the hell of their world.
Political science is considered the closest to managing the affairs of government, and planning to build meaningful development programs that contribute to addressing the negative phenomena that impede development in all its forms.
