Racism, Spirituality and the Future of Civilisation

Mark Perry surveys the historical roots of racism and the despiritualization 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 civilization.

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

  • how racism developed,
  • why society became de-spiritualized,
  • 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 civilization.

Mark Perry uses the analogy of an archaeological dig to survey the historical roots of racism and the despiritualization 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 civilization.
