My dear friend Bonnie Taylor* has done it once again with this magnificent compilation about the elimination of extremes of wealth and poverty.
If you (or a friend on FaceBook) think that the only thing Baha’u’llah has to say about ending poverty is that the rich should voluntarily share their wealth, then this book will be an eye-opener. In addition to the handful of well-known statements about being “created rich” or “tell the rich of the midnight sighing of the poor,” this comprehensive compilation includes little-known statements concerning redistribution of wealth, taxation, profit sharing, tyranny, and the importance of work as worship. Many important sections are from relatively new statements by the Baha’i International Community.
Considering the fact that elimination of extremes of wealth and poverty is one of the ten basic Baha’i social principles, too many Baha’is know too little about HOW the Writings say it can be done. Neither rampant market forces nor simple charity will solve this problem.
