“With reference to the question you have asked concerning the time and means through which the Lesser and Most Great Peace, referred to by Baha’u’llah, will be established, following the coming world war. Your view that the lesser peace will come about through political efforts of the states and nations of the world, and independently of any direct Baha’i plan or effort, and the Most Great peace established through the instrumentality of the believers, and by the direct operation of the laws and principles revealed by Baha’u’llah and the functioning of the Universal House of Justice as the supreme organ of the Baha’i super state — your view on this subject is quite correct and in full accord with the pronouncements of the Guardian as embodied in the ‘Unfoldment of World Civilization’.”
