“How can 8 Billion People Govern Themselves Better?” with Maury Miloff

Humanity has experimented with many different systems of governance essentially, how a society manages itself. Even the simplest groups have a collective vision of what is right and good, and norms, rules and processes which purport to protect and guide. However, to date, all major governance systems have been found wanting. Even advanced democracies are affected by low voting participation, declining trust in politicians and institutions, polarization, inequality and racism. The Baha'i teachings on governance constitute a unique paradigm. This presentation will explore how the Baha'i model, systematically being put into practice around the world, holds great promise for improved governance from the grassroots up to the global level.
