Towards a New World Order
TOWARDS A NEW WORLD ORDER The nineteenth century set the stage for movements that have pushed human development toward different paths and fortunes. Many of these groups have apparently been successful. However, today they are dying out. Others were born in silence and flourished unnoticed, but, like embers under ashes, have maintained their energy unaltered and today they are beginning to manifest it. One of these movements was inspired in the second half of the last century by an extraordinary figure known as Baha’u’llah. He forged a new concept of history, anticipated the “evolution theory” and offered a systemic vision of the world. Baha’u’llah affirmed that history proceeds in a discontinuous ascendant line and that every new historical phase represents a step of progress with respect to the previous one. Therefore, history is cumulative and progressive. It is in constant change an motion. He outlines that everything is relative and progressive and slowly but inexorably moves toward a global improvement of live and civilization. In the last century this was a daring concept. This sort of predictive thought was considered heretical and dangerous. Thus, Baha’u’llah was forced from prison to prison for forty years until the end of His life, in 1892, when He was still a prisoner in the most infamous prison of a penal colony of the Ottoman Empire known as Akka. Progress is often fed by suffering, victims and blood before asserting itself. This, the history of our planet has evolved thorough wider and more complex social aggregations. Originally only a few aggregations existed. The latter, grouping with others to better cope with the challenges of survival, transformed in tribes, then, stimulated by trading exchanges, became challenges. The necessity to defend themselves from enemies, predators, a hostile natural environment and the numerical increase of the population created the conditions, over centuries, to transform villages into cities and cities, through military conquests and new social structures, into city-states (initially dependent and later independent). Subsequently, these territories evolved into regions and nations and, in turn, nations became sovereign states. In our millennium the majority of nations in the world are sovereign and politically independent. Graph n. 1 shows in brief the evolution of human society as a whole.
