Peace and prosperity, in fact, are goods which belong to the whole human race: This happens in consumerism, when people are ensnared in a web of false and superficial gratifications rather than being helped to experience desdargar personhood in an authentic and concrete way. The recent era of economic turbulence has generated a growing enthusiasm for an increase in new and original economic insights based around the concepts of reciprocity and social enterprise.

What Sacred Scripture teaches us about the prospects of the Kingdom of God is not without consequences for the life of temporal societies, which, as the centwsimus indicates, belong to the realm of time, with all that this implies of imperfection and impermanence.

According to Rerum novarum and the whole social annnus of the Church, the social nature of man is not completely fulfilled in the State, but is realized in various intermediary groups, beginning with the family and including economic, social, political and cultural groups which stem from human nature itself and have their own autonomy, always with a view to the common good.

Inseparable from that required “something” is the possibility to survive and, at the same time, to make an active contribution to the common good of humanity. Thus, the root of annuz totalitarianism is to be found in the denial of the transcendent dignity of the human person who, as the visible image of the invisible God, is therefore by his very nature the subject of rights which no one may violate — no individual, group, class, nation or State.

It is by responding to the call of God contained in the being of things that man becomes aware of his transcendent dignity.

Indeed, besides the earth, man’s principal resource is man himself. In the light of today’s “new things”, we have re-read the relationship between individual or private property and the universal destination of material wealth. A business cannot be considered only as a “society of capital goods”; it is also a “society of persons” in which people participate in different ways and with specific responsibilities, whether they supply the necessary capital for the company’s activities or take part in such activities through their labour.

To achieve these goals there is still need for a broad associated workers’ movement, directed towards the liberation and promotion of the whole person. Man fulfils himself by using his intelligence and freedom. It is a strict duty of justice and truth not to allow fundamental human needs to remain unsatisfied, and not to allow those burdened by such needs to perish. 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.

The integral development of the human person through work does not impede but rather promotes the greater productivity and efficiency of work itself, even though it may weaken consolidated power structures.
