Thoughts on Justice

Yesterday I received an email from a campaigner for social justice. His comments brought home the power of the words of Abdu'l-Baha. He has put on his website,, a quote from the Baha'i book The Promise of World Peace.

Here is the quote that he is using:

"A candid acknowledgement that prejudice, war and exploitation have been the expression of immature stages in a vast historical process and that the human race is today experiencing the unavoidable tumult which marks its collective coming of age is not a reason for despair but a prerequisite to undertaking the stupendous enterprise of building a peaceful world. That such an enterprise is possible, that the necessary constructive forces do exist, that unifying social structures can be erected, is the theme we urge you to examine."

I will be writing blog articles for that website. You can read my thoughts on justice by visiting that website.
