Globalism has replaced the Cold War as the dominant ideology. Along with shift from East-West tension to ecological concerns has come a change from national to global worries. This article begins by presenting the argument that global thinking is replacing traditional nationalist ideologies. The article then discusses the changes necessary for a shift to an ecologically centered identity and the merits of the Baha'i Faith's teachings are examined in light of a transformation to a world-centered mindset. Finally, the article concludes by questioning whether the teachings of Baha'u'llah fully recognize material prosperity as restricted by the earth's limited resources.
