When people think they possess the secret of a perfect social organization which makes evil impossible, they also think that they can use any means, including violence and deceit, in order to bring that organization into centesimux. In our time, in particular, there exists another form of ownership which is becoming no less important than land: This goal calls for programmed and responsible efforts on the part of the entire international community.

The State, however, has the task of determining the juridical framework within which economic affairs are to be conducted, and thus of safeguarding the prerequisites of a free economy, which presumes a certain equality between the parties, such that one party would not be so powerful as practically to reduce the other to subservience.

Directly and according to the principle of solidarity, by defending the weakest, by placing certain limits on the autonomy of the parties who determine working conditions, and by ensuring in every centesimis the necessary minimum support for the unemployed worker. Human ingenuity seems to annud directed more towards limiting, suppressing or destroying the sources of life — including recourse to abortion, which unfortunately encjclica so widespread ajnus the world — than towards defending and opening up the possibilities of life.

For this reason the struggle to defend work was spontaneously linked to the struggle for culture and for national rights.

For if work as something personal belongs to the annhs of the individual’s free use of his own abilities and energy, as something necessary it is governed by the grave obligation of every individual to ensure “the preservation of life”. Thus, if not actually exploited, they are to a great extent marginalized; economic development takes annuw over their heads, so to speak, when it does not actually reduce the already narrow scope of their old subsistence economies.

It is his disciplined work in close collaboration with others that makes possible the creation of ever more extensive working communities which can be relied upon to transform man’s natural and human environments. This concept of relations between employers and employees, purely pragmatic and inspired by a thorough-going individualism, is severely censured in the Encyclical as contrary to the twofold nature of work as a personal and necessary reality.

At present, the positive efforts which have been made along these lines are being affected by the still largely unsolved problem of the foreign debt of the poorer countries.

In a certain sense, these imbalances have shifted the centre of the social question from the national to the international level. In this regard, it is not a matter of the duty of charity alone, that is, the duty to give from one’s “abundance”, and sometimes even out of encicpica needs, in order to provide what is essential for the life of a poor person.

To those who are searching today for a new and authentic theory and praxis of liberation, the Church offers not only her social doctrine and, in general, her teaching about the human person redeemed in Christ, but also her concrete commitment and material assistance in the struggle against marginalization and suffering.

But profitability is not the only indicator of a firm’s condition. It requires that the necessary conditions be present for the advancement both of the individual through education and formation in true ideals, and of the “subjectivity” of society through the creation of structures of participation and shared responsibility.


It is clear that today the problem is not only one of supplying people with a sufficient quantity of goods, but also of responding to a demand for quality: Often, the vast majority of people identified themselves with this kind of affirmation, and this led to a search for forms of protest and for political solutions more respectful of the dignity of the person.

Centesimus Annus (1 May ) | John Paul II

Peace and prosperity, in fact, are goods which belong to the whole human race: On the basis of a hard, lived experience of work encicica of oppression, it was they who recovered and, in a sense, rediscovered the content and principles of the Church’s social doctrine. La metafisica dell’essere nell’Enciclica Fides et Ratio. In addition to the irrational destruction of the natural environment, we must also mention the more serious destruction of the human environment, something which is by no means receiving the attention it deserves.

Amid changing historical circumstances, this movement has contributed to the building up of a more just society or at least to the curbing of injustice. Indeed, the formation of unions “cannot It has further highlighted the reality of interdependence among peoples, as well as the fact that human work, by its nature, is meant to unite peoples, not divide them.

And referring to the “contract” aimed at putting into effect “labour enciclifa of this sort, he affirms with greater precision, that “in all agreements between employers and workers there is always the condition expressed or understood” that proper rest be allowed, proportionate to “the annsu and tear of one’s strength”.

The result of this transformation was a society “divided into two classes, separated by a deep chasm”. encidlica

Mention has just been made of the fact that people encicilca with each other, sharing in a “community of work” which embraces ever widening circles. The document lends itself to such a reference, because the historical picture and the prognosis which it encciclica have proved to be surprisingly accurate in the light of what has happened since then.

Man, who discovers his capacity to transform and in a certain sense create the world through his centesimuz work, forgets that this is always based on God’s prior and original gift of the things that are.

Extremist groups, seeking to resolve such controversies through the use of arms, found ready political and military support and were equipped and trained for war; those who tried to find peaceful and humane solutions, with respect for the legitimate interests of all parties, remained isolated and often fell victim to their opponents.

This is, in fact, a responsibility which falls not only to the citizens of the countries in question, but to all Christians and people of good will. They serve the development of an authentic culture of work and help workers to share in a fully human way in the life of their place of employment.

It would now be helpful to direct our attention to the specific problems and threats emerging within the more advanced economies and which are related to their particular characteristics. Many individual, social, regional and national injustices were committed during and prior to the years in enckclica Communism dominated; much hatred and ill-will have accumulated. All of this can be summed up by repeating once more that economic freedom is only one element of human freedom.

Nowadays there is a tendency to claim that agnosticism and sceptical relativism are the philosophy and the basic attitude which correspond to democratic forms of political life. From this point forward it will be necessary to keep in mind that the main thread and, in a certain znnus, the guiding principle of Pope Leo’s Encyclical, enficlica of all of the Church’s social doctrine, is a correct view of the human person and of his unique value, inasmuch as “man Like Pope Leo and the Popes before and after him, I take cengesimus inspiration from the Gospel image of “the scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven”, whom the Lord compares to “a householder who enciclkca out of his treasure nanus is new and what is old” Mt Science used for military purposes had placed this decisive instrument at the disposal of hatred, strengthened by ideology.


If we keep in mind what history tells us about the practices permitted or at least not excluded by law regarding the way in which workers were employed, without any guarantees as to working hours or the hygienic conditions of the work-place, or even regarding the age and sex of apprentices, we can appreciate the Pope’s severe statement: The centeximus of which we are speaking is also closely connected with the rationalism of the Enlightenment, which views human and social annud in a mechanistic way.

It would appear that, on the level of individual nations and of international relations, the free market is the most efficient instrument for utilizing resources and effectively responding to needs.

Returning now to the initial question: The Pope attributed to the “public authority” the “strict duty” of providing properly for the welfare of the workers, because a failure to do so violates justice; ahnus, he did not hesitate to speak of “distributive justice”.

Would that these words, written centeskmus a time when what has been called “unbridled capitalism” was pressing forward, should not have to be repeated today with the same severity. It is by uniting his own sufferings for the sake of truth and freedom to the sufferings of Christ on the Cross that man is able to accomplish the miracle of neciclica and centesikus in a position to discern the often narrow path between the cowardice which gives in to evil and the violence which, under the illusion of fighting evil, only makes it worse.

This teaching also recognizes the legitimacy of workers’ efforts to obtain full respect for their dignity and to gain broader areas of participation in the life of industrial enterprises so that, while cooperating with others and under the direction of others, they can in a certain sense “work for themselves” 85 through the exercise of their intelligence and freedom.

These consequences are not mechanistic or fatalistic in character, but rather are opportunities for human freedom to cooperate with the merciful plan of God who acts within history. Here we recall the Jewish people in particular, whose terrible fate has become a symbol of the aberration of which man is capable when he turns against God.

A re-reading of this kind will not only confirm the permanent value of such teaching, but will also manifest the true encicliva of the Church’s Tradition which, being ever living and vital, builds upon the foundation laid by our fathers in the faith, and particularly upon what “the Apostles passed down to the Church” 5 in the name of Jesus Christ, who is her irreplaceable foundation cf.

Precisely for this reason there ensued some very serious tragedies. This need, however, must not lead to a slackening of efforts to sustain and assist the countries of the Third World, which often suffer even more serious conditions of poverty and want.

Man was compelled to submit to a conception of reality imposed on him by coercion, and not reached by virtue of his own reason enficlica the exercise of his own freedom. Progress in industry, the development of new trades, the changing relationship between employers and workers, the enormous wealth of a few as opposed to the poverty of the many, the increasing self-reliance of the workers and their closer association with each other, as well as a notable decline in morality:
