Stress is a big problem in the modern world.  Everyone is stressed to some extent.  One day, the government mandates that all people must learn meditation, and practice it at least once per week.   Only those who meditate daily are eligible for public office.

A young man hopes to become a member of parliament, but he just can’t sit still long enough to meditate properly.  He despairs of ever achieving the state of calm which will make him eligible for election.

How does he solve his problem?  Does he try to fool the government inspectors into thinking he meditates?  Does he have better success with moving meditations such as Tai Chi?  Can you think of another way for him to make it to the House of Commons?
