The topic of this talk is – My purpose is two-fold: (1) to demonstrate the conflicts between contemporary ‘woke-ism’ and the Baha’i Writings and (2) to show how the Baha’i Writings offer better intellectual and practical alternatives to work for social justice goals in today’s world. As part of my presentation, I shall show how ‘woke-ism’ creates more problems than it supposedly solves and, thereby, does not provide a positive platform for social, intellectual and spiritual change.
