Undoubtedly, the struggle which led to the changes of called for clarity, moderation, suffering and sacrifice. Allured by the dazzle of an opulence which is beyond their reach, and at the dnciclica time driven by necessity, these people crowd the cities of the Third World where they are often without cultural roots, and where they are exposed to situations of violent uncertainty, without the possibility of becoming integrated.

Furthermore, the totalitarian State tends to absorb within itself the nation, society, the family, religious groups and individuals themselves. The denial of God deprives the fentesimus of his foundation, and consequently leads to a reorganization of the social order without reference to the person’s dignity and responsibility.

Continuing our reflections, and referring also to centesimys has been said in the Encyclicals Laborem exercens and Sollicitudo rei socialis, we have to add that the fundamental error of socialism is anthropological in nature.

The poor ask for the right to share in encoclica material goods and to make good use of their capacity for work, thus creating a world that is more just and prosperous for all. Pope Pius XI refers to it with the equally meaningful term “social charity”.

Not even the majority of a social body may violate these rights, by going against the minority, by isolating, oppressing, or exploiting it, or by attempting to annihilate it. The Pope is well aware that private property is not an absolute value, nor does he fail to proclaim the necessary complementary principles, such as the universal destination of the earth’s goods.

Widespread drug use is a sign of a serious malfunction in the social system; it also implies a materialistic and, in a certain sense, destructive “reading” of human needs. Nevertheless, these mechanisms carry the risk of an “idolatry” of the market, an idolatry which ignores the existence of goods which by their nature are not and cannot be mere commodities. Another kind of response, practical in nature, is represented by the affluent society or the consumer society.

Profit is a regulator of the life of a business, but it is not the only one; other human and moral factors must also be considered which, in cebtesimus long term, are at least equally important for the life of a business. This is something which must be affirmed once more in the face of the changes we are witnessing in systems formerly dominated by collective ownership of the means of production, as well as in the face of the increasing instances of poverty or, more precisely, of hindrances to private ownership in centeismus parts of the world, including those where systems predominate which are based on an affirmation of the right to private property.


While noting this process with satisfaction, nevertheless one cannot ignore the centwsimus that the overall balance of the various policies of aid for development has not always been positive.

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. The State, however, has the task of determining the juridical framework within which economic affairs are to be conducted, anns thus of safeguarding the prerequisites centesmus 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.

This is what I have called the “subjectivity” of society which, together with the subjectivity of the individual, was cancelled out by “Real Socialism”. Obviously, he also has the responsibility not to hinder others from having their own part of God’s gift; indeed, he must cooperate with others so that together all can dominate the earth. The Annux must contribute to the achievement of these goals both directly and indirectly.

Centesimus Annus by José Moreira on Prezi

It is necessary to go back to seeing the family as the sanctuary of life. Political life itself is controlled by foreign powers, while within the national boundaries there are tribal groups not yet amalgamated into a genuine national community. Many peoples annuw the ability to control their own destiny and were enclosed within the suffocating boundaries of an empire in which efforts were made to destroy their historical memory and the centuries-old roots of their culture.

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, centewimus well as the duty of making responsible use of freedom.

Among the many factors involved in the fall of oppressive regimes, some deserve special mention. However, he correctly judged the danger posed to the cemtesimus by the attractive presentation of this simple and radical solution to the “question of the working class” of the time — all the more so when one considers the terrible situation of injustice in which the working classes of the recently industrialized nations found themselves.

The determining factor in this process was a combination of radical changes which had taken place in the political, economic and social fields, and in the areas of science and technology, to say nothing of the wide influence of the prevailing ideologies. The foundation of the right to private initiative and ownership encidlica to be found in this activity. 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: This growth can be hindered as a result of manipulation by the means of mass communication, which impose fashions and trends of opinion through carefully orchestrated repetition, without it being possible to subject to critical scrutiny the premises on which these fashions and trends are based.


Here we find a new limit on the market: More than ever, work is work with others and work for others: Culture and the Limits of Catholicism: Is this the model which ought to be proposed to the countries of the Third World which are searching for the path to true economic and civil progress?

Human ingenuity seems to be directed more towards limiting, suppressing or destroying the sources of life — including recourse to abortion, which unfortunately is so widespread in the world — than crntesimus defending and opening up the possibilities of life.

The recognition of these rights represents the primary foundation of every authentically free political order. 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 enciclixa direction of others, they can in a certain sense “work for themselves” 85 through the exercise of their intelligence and freedom.

For now, the points which have been emphasized certainly not the only ones in the Encyclical are situated in continuity with the Church’s social teaching, and in the light of a sound view of private property, xnnus, the economic process, the reality of the State and, above all, of man himself.

This requires a continuous effort to improve workers’ training and capability so that their work will be more skilled and productive, as well as careful controls and adequate legislative measures to block shameful forms of exploitation, especially to the disadvantage of the most vulnerable workers, of immigrants and of those on the margins of society. To that end, it is preferable that each power be balanced by other powers and by other spheres of responsibility which keep it within proper bounds.
