Against these phenomena the Church strongly raises her voice. Thus the prevailing political theory of the time sought to promote total economic freedom by appropriate laws, or, conversely, by a deliberate lack of any intervention. In this regard, Rerum novarum points the way to just reforms which can restore dignity to work as the free activity of man. Together with this right, which — it must be stressed — the Pope explicitly acknowledges as belonging to workers, or, using his own language, to “the working class”, the Encyclical affirms just as clearly the right to the “limitation of working hours”, the right to legitimate rest and the right ccentesimus children and women 21 to be treated differently with regard cenhesimus the type and duration of work.
During the same period a widespread process of “decolonization” occurred, by emciclica many countries gained or regained their independence annuus the right freely to determine their own destiny. 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.
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 cenhesimus poorer countries. In a word, it is a question of transferring to the sphere of internal conflict between social groups the doctrine of “total war”, which the militarism and imperialism of that time brought to bear on international relations.
Rerum novarum is opposed to State control of the means of production, which would reduce every citizen to being a “cog” in the State machine. Mention has just been made of the fact that people work with each other, sharing in a “community of work” which embraces ever widening circles.

The focal point of this evolution has been the United Nations Organization. Alienation, however, has not been overcome as it exists in various forms of exploitation, when eniclica use one another, and when they seek an ever more refined satisfaction of their individual and secondary needs, while ignoring the principal and authentic needs which ought to regulate the manner of satisfying the other ones too.
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 peace and is 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.
Undoubtedly, the struggle which led to the changes of called for clarity, moderation, suffering and sacrifice. 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 annks of participation and shared responsibility.
In this way what we nowadays call the principle of solidarity, the validity of which both in the internal order of each nation and in the international order I have discussed in the Encyclical Sollicitudo rei socialis, 34 is clearly seen to be annsu of the fundamental principles of the Christian view of social and political organization.
It is a question of showing that the complex problems faced by those peoples can be resolved through dialogue and solidarity, rather than by a struggle to destroy the enemy through war.
While noting this process with satisfaction, nevertheless one cannot ignore the fact that the overall balance of the various policies of aid for development has not always been positive.

Indeed, a two-fold approach prevailed: It was the conflict between capital and labour, or — as the Encyclical puts it — the worker question. In modern times, this concept has been opposed by totalitarianism, cnetesimus, in its Marxist-Leninist form, maintains that some people, by virtue of a deeper knowledge of the laws of the development of society, or through membership of a particular class or through contact with the deeper sources of the collective consciousness, are exempt from error and can therefore arrogate to themselves the exercise of absolute power.
This goal calls for programmed and responsible efforts on the part of the entire international community. History of Western Encuclica.
Aprender a Vivir En Comunidad – Enciclica Centesimus Annus : Silvia Jauregui :
For about a century the workers’ movement had fallen in part under the dominance of Marxism, in the conviction that the working class, in order to struggle effectively against oppression, had to appropriate its economic and materialistic theories. In this context, an abundance of work opportunities, a solid system of social security and professional training, the freedom to join trade unions and the effective action of unions, the assistance provided in cases of unemployment, the opportunities for democratic participation in the life of society — all these are meant to deliver work from the mere condition of “a commodity”, and to guarantee its dignity.
Another important aspect, which has many applications to our own day, is the concept of the relationship between the State and its citizens. However, the historical experience of socialist countries has sadly demonstrated that collectivism does not do away with alienation but rather increases it, adding to it a lack of basic necessities and economic inefficiency.
James Armstrong – – Journal of Business Ethics 12 Precisely for this reason there ensued some very serious tragedies. Politics then becomes a “secular religion” which operates under the illusion of creating paradise in this world. Although people are rightly worried — though much less than they should be — about preserving the natural habitats of the various animal species threatened with extinction, because they realize that each of these species makes its particular contribution to the balance of nature in general, too little effort is made to safeguard the moral conditions for an authentic “human ecology”.
The fall of Marxism has naturally had a great impact on the division of the planet into worlds which are closed to one another and in jealous competition. It is the task of the State to provide for the defence and preservation of common goods such as the natural and human environments, which cannot be safeguarded simply by market forces. The Encyclical Sollicitudo rei socialis denounced systematic anti-childbearing campaigns which, on the basis of a distorted view of the demographic problem and in a climate of “absolute lack of respect for the freedom of choice of the parties involved”, often subject them “to intolerable pressures Pope Paul VI, expanding the concept to cover the many modern aspects of the social question, speaks of a “civilization of love”.
However, aspects typical of the Third World also appear in developed countries, where the constant transformation of the methods of production and consumption devalues certain acquired skills and professional expertise, and thus requires a continual effort of re-training and updating.
A person who produces something other than for his own use generally does so in order that others may use it after they have paid a just price, mutually agreed upon through free bargaining. 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 one’s needs, in order to provide what is essential for the life of a poor person. 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.
Economic activity is indeed but one sector in a great variety of human activities, and like every other sector, it includes the right to freedom, as well as the duty of making responsible use of freedom. The social order will be all the more stable, the more it takes this fact into account and does not place in opposition personal interest and the interests of society as a whole, but rather seeks ways to bring them into fruitful harmony.
When man does not recognize in himself and in others the value and grandeur of the human person, he effectively deprives himself of the possibility of benefitting from his humanity and of entering into that relationship of solidarity and communion with others for which God created him.
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. In the face of a conflict which set man against man, almost as if they were “wolves”, a conflict between the extremes of mere physical survival on the one side and opulence on the other, the Pope did not hesitate to intervene by virtue of his “apostolic office”, 9 that is, on the basis of the mission received from Jesus Christ himself to “feed his lambs and tend his sheep” cf.
