Olivier Agustin December 13, 2017 Olivier Agustin December 13, 2017 We live in a very polarizing time. As globalization gains more and more traction, so do our cultures, ideas and principles become increasingly homogenous. The world understands the need for social change but does not know how to go about it. This is what brings extremism on both sides of most of today’s social discourses. A lot of us are feeling the pressure of choosing a side, which sometimes makes us stay out of a conversation completely. On subjects such as gender equality and racism, we’re noticing the increasing disparity between two sides of somewhat fanatical arguments. These are the times where I’ve felt really privileged to grow up in a Baha’i environment. As Baha’is, most of today’s controversial topics are subjects we’ve been understanding, discussing and working towards for our whole lives.
