The commemoration of Rerum novarum would be incomplete unless reference were also made to the situation of the world today.
More precisely, they have given those with the knowledge, and especially the economic resources to use them, an impressive dominance over the whole of humanity and the entire world. We need to see that what is at centesiimus is our own dignity. Unfortunately, even today one finds instances of contracts between employers and employees which lack reference to the most elementary justice regarding the employment of children or women, working hours, the centesimu condition of the annks and fair pay; and this is the case despite the International Declarations and Conventions on the subject 26 and the internal laws of States.
Underlying the principle of the common good is respect for the human person as such, endowed with basic and inalienable rights ordered to his or her integral development.
The Kingdom of God, being in the world without being of the world, throws light on the order of human society, while the power of grace penetrates that order and gives it life. While continuing to admire its grandeur and immensity, it no longer saw nature as divine. Many individual, social, regional and national injustices were committed during and prior to the years in which Communism dominated; much hatred and ill-will have accumulated.
As a result of this doctrine, the search for a proper balance between the interests of the various nations was anuns by encykllika to impose the absolute domination of one’s own side through the destruction of the other side’s capacity to resist, using every possible means, not excluding the use of lies, terror tactics against citizens, and weapons of utter destruction which precisely in those years were beginning to be designed.
In fact, where self-interest is violently suppressed, it is replaced by a burdensome system of bureaucratic control which dries up the wellsprings of initiative and creativity. If economic life is absolutized, if the production and consumption of goods become the centre of social life and society’s only value, emcyklika subject to any other value, the reason is to be found not so much in the economic system itself as in the fact that the entire socio-cultural system, by ignoring the ethical and religious dimension, has been weakened, and ends by limiting itself to the production of goods and services alone.
The denial of God deprives the person of his foundation, and consequently leads to a reorganization of the social order without reference to the person’s dignity and responsibility. In so doing he utilizes the things of this world as objects and instruments and makes them his own. The logic of power blocs or empires, denounced in various Church documents and recently in the Encyclical Sollicitudo rei socialis, 50 led to a situation in which controversies and disagreements among Third World countries were systematically aggravated and exploited in order to create difficulties for the adversary.

They may not affirm such theories with words, but nonetheless support them with encykklika deeds by showing no interest in more balanced levels of production, a better distribution of wealth, concern for the environment and the rights of future generations. Science used for military purposes had placed this decisive instrument at the disposal of hatred, strengthened by ideology.
Man is thus reduced to a series of social relationships, and the concept of the person as the autonomous subject of moral decision disappears, the very subject whose decisions build the social order. In this way, any place can turn from being a hell on earth into the setting for a dignified life.
Just as the different aspects of the planet — physical, chemical and biological — are interrelated, so too living species are part of a network which we will never fully explore and understand. In the unstable neighbourhoods of mega-cities, the daily experience of overcrowding and social anonymity can create a sense of uprootedness which spawns antisocial behaviour and violence.
The extreme poverty experienced in areas lacking harmony, open spaces or potential for integration, can lead to incidents of brutality and to exploitation by criminal organizations. Would that these words, written at a time when what has been called “unbridled capitalism” was pressing forward, should not have to be repeated today with the same severity.
There is a real danger that these will re-explode after the collapse of dictatorship, provoking serious conflicts and casualties, should there be a lessening of the moral commitment and conscious striving to bear witness to the truth which were the inspiration for past efforts.
Ecological culture cannot be reduced to a series of urgent and partial responses to the immediate problems of pollution, environmental decay and the depletion of natural resources. Praised be you, my Lord, through Sister Water, who is very useful and humble and precious and chaste. Lastly, it should be remembered that after the Second World War, and in reaction to its horrors, there arose a more lively sense of human rights, which found recognition in a number of International Documents 52 and, one might say, in the drawing up of centssimus new “right enfyklika nations”, to which the Holy See has constantly contributed.
When encyk,ika question is eliminated, the culture and moral life of nations are corrupted.
Pave Francis’ encyklika: Laudato Si | Strøtanker om bæredygtighed
Many of those who possess more resources and economic or political power seem mostly to be concerned with masking the problems or concealing their symptoms, simply making efforts to reduce some of the negative impacts of climate change. Their attempts to move to other, more diversified, means of production prove fruitless because of the difficulty of linkage with regional and global markets, or because the infrastructure for sales and transport is geared to larger businesses. It is precisely the ability to foresee both the needs of others and the combinations of productive factors most adapted to satisfying those needs that constitutes another important source of wealth in modern society.
The result of this transformation was a society “divided into two classes, separated by a deep chasm”. Science and technology are not neutral; from the beginning to the end of a process, various intentions and possibilities are in play and can take on distinct shapes.
Nevertheless, it cannot be forgotten that the manner in which the individual exercises his freedom is conditioned in innumerable ways.
Pope’s new encyclical “Charity in Truth” on social teaching
He was far removed from philosophies which despised the body, matter and the things of the world. We need only recall how ecosystems interact in dispersing carbon dioxide, purifying water, controlling illnesses and epidemics, forming anhus, breaking down waste, and in many other ways which we overlook or simply do not know about. But we should be particularly indignant at the enormous inequalities in our midst, whereby we continue to tolerate anns considering themselves more worthy than others.
Technoscience, when well directed, can produce important means of improving the quality encyklikq human life, from useful domestic appliances to great transportation systems, bridges, buildings and public spaces. Large cities dependent on significant supplies of water have experienced periods of shortage, and at critical moments these have not always been administered with sufficient oversight and impartiality.
But the true cause of the new developments was the spiritual void brought about by atheism, which deprived the younger generations of a sense of direction and in many cases led them, in the irrepressible search encykklika personal identity and for the meaning of life, to rediscover the religious roots of their national cultures, and to rediscover the person of Christ himself as the existentially adequate response to the desire in every human heart for goodness, truth and life.
encyolika The poorest areas and aannus are less capable of adopting new models for reducing environmental impact because they lack the wherewithal to develop the necessary processes and to cover their costs. There has been a tragic rise in the number of migrants seeking to flee from the growing poverty caused by environmental degradation.
The foreign debt of poor countries has become a way of controlling them, yet this is not the case where ecological debt is concerned.
However, it is only when hatred and injustice are sanctioned and organized by the ideologies based on them, rather than on the truth about man, that they take possession of entire nations and drive them to act. But we need only take a frank look at the facts to see that our common home is falling into serious disrepair. This will help to provide an approach to ecology which respects our unique place as human beings in this world and our relationship to our surroundings.
An outsider looking at our world would be amazed at such behaviour, which at times appears self-destructive. It must be centesmus that totalitarianism arises out of a denial of truth in the objective sense. Politics then becomes a “secular religion” which operates under the illusion of creating paradise in this world.
