Last War

Racism, Spirituality and the Future of Civilisation

Mark Perry surveys the historical roots of racism and the de-spiritualisation of society, back from the modern day to their primitive, prehistoric past. Holding out a vision provided by Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’í Faith, he explains how humanity can lay the groundwork for a new civilisation.

Overcoming racism, re-spiritualising society, establishing the unity of all people and creating true civilisation is the last war. To fight it, we need to understand how society got to this point:

  • how racism developed,
  • why society became de-spiritualised,
  • what happened to our sense of oneness,

and the need to develop a vision of how the world can move from its turbulent adolescence to its long awaited maturity - a time when all nations and races will become united in a global civilisation.

Mark Perry uses the analogy of an archaeological dig to survey the historical roots of racism and the de-spiritualisation of society, century by century, back from the modern day to their primitive, prehistoric past. Holding out a vision provided by Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’í Faith, more than a century ago, he explains how humanity can lay the groundwork for a new civilisation.
