Course: Economic Justice in a World of Injustices
Faculty Mentor: Jean Parker
Student: Carol Curtis
While taking the course Economic Justice in a World of Injustices and reading the materials, I gained a deeper understanding of how the teachings and laws of the Bahá’í Writings will eventually lead to an economic system that is much more just and equitable. I knew that the teachings stated this and was familiar with most of the quotations used during the course. However, taking the course gave me reassurance that this process of establishing greater justice and equity is part of humanity’s present endeavors, even though it may be difficult to perceive, both within the Faith and outside of it. Although at times I feel despair for what is happening all over the world, I desperately want change, and taking this course helped renew and increase my hope for the future of all living beings on planet Earth. We humans have the potential to create just societies, but we need a united desire and will to achieve that potential.
