On Standards: Society's vs Baha'u'llah's

The light of the Revelation is destined to illumine every sphere of endeavour; in each, the relationships that sustain society are to be recast; in each, the world seeks examples of how human beings should be to one another. We offer for your consideration, given its conspicuous part in generating the ferment in which so many people have recently been embroiled, the economic life of humanity, where injustice is tolerated with indifference and disproportionate gain is regarded as the emblem of success. So deeply entrenched are such pernicious attitudes that it is hard to imagine how any one individual can alone alter the prevailing standards by which the relationships in this domain are governed.

This helpful chart was up on the wall at Matt and Christy's for use by the Tigers junior youth group, I presume.  -gw

As ye have faith so shall your powers and blessings be. This is the standard — this is the standard — this is the standard. ('Abdul-Bahá, Bahá'i Scriptures, p. 503 )
