1. Differences Between People

1:1. In order to manage groups of people and even a whole country effectively one needs to be well grounded in the fundamental psychological knowledge.

1:2. People differ by their sex, the age of their bodies, color of their skin, nationality, education, character traits and other qualities. But all of these differences are relatively inessential.

The main criterion, by which people differentiate, is � the age of their souls as well as the qualities they have developed during their personal evolution in a series of incarnations.

1:3. The level of intellectual development of a specific embodied man directly correlates not only with the age of his soul but also with the quality of those lives he has spent in the incarnate state.

1:4. In line with this, the whole adult population of any country may be divided into groups (or strata, or �layers�).

In any country there are very few people (one per several millions), whose positive experience accumulated in the course of their evolution is rich enough to enable them to fully realize the highest spiritual values, including adequate understanding of the essence of God and of Evolution of the Universal Consciousness, of the methodology of spiritual perfection and of what moral principles should (objectively!) be the basis of people�s actions � both on an individual scale and on the scale of domestic and foreign policy of states.

The second � and significantly more numerous � �age� group (from psycho-genetic standpoint) is represented by socially advanced people (leaders in various fields: science, politics, military, business and so on). Their intellectual and moral level cannot be regarded as ideal one though: sometimes they tend to make decisions, not grounded on the objective necessity but out of their personal emotions, including various forms of ambition. Also they have not ridden themselves of egocentric self-interest and of striving for personal fame. (aggressive degradants, misanthropes, diabolic persons (like nazi leaders) and criminal �authorities� should not be regarded as members of this group).

The third and even more numerous group consists of those who are mature enough intellectually (psycho-genetically) to acquire relatively complex skills in various social fields, but which have not become leaders yet.

And the fourth group, which constitutes the majority of population, consists of children in psycho-genetic sense, these souls � are so young, that they are not capable of making their own decisions responsibly, their social activity is determined by the will of various leaders (including diabolic, criminal ones), under influence of which they easily and quite uncritically fall. They feel a great deal of discomfort (bored, weak, not needed etc.) in the absence of someone who would lead them; this is why they enthusiastically �find themselves� in any group built by someone around something � be it a religious organization, political party, group of drug addicts, �fans� of a football team or a street-gang. It is this type of people that demonstrates the so-called �crowd effect�, well studied by psychologists. It is them, who form gangs of thieves, robbers, Nazi pogromists etc. � depending on the will and inventiveness of their leaders. We can find examples of this in the history of inquisition and fascism, in Chinese �cultural revolution� and activity of modern Russian fascists and Islamic fundamentalists in Afghanistan and several other countries.

1:5. This model reflecting the structure of population in any modern society agrees with the ancient Indian teaching of varnas (brahmans � kshatriyas � vayshyas � shudras) in the Bhagavad Gita (see V.Antonov �God Speaks. Textbook of Religion�, St. Petersburg, �Polus�, 1999)

1:6. Only representatives of the first group are capable of thinking God-centrically deliberately (as opposed to thinking egocentrically or in the interests of a particular group of people).

1:7. Since the fourth one of the mentioned groups represent the overwhelming majority of population in any country, including Russia, the state policy has to be developed taking into account its specifics and its possible role in the future events.
