The Church is well aware that in the course of history conflicts of interest between different social groups inevitably arise, and that in the face of such conflicts Christians must often take a position, honestly and decisively.
In the face of the so-called culture of death, the family is the heart of the culture of life. It is the task of the State to provide for the defence and preservation of common goods such cenesimus the natural and human environments, which cannot be safeguarded simply by market forces. To these rights Pope Leo XIII adds another right regarding the condition of the working class, one which I wish to mention because of its importance: We have centesimuw that it is unacceptable to say that the defeat of so-called “Real Socialism” leaves capitalism as the only model of economic organization.
It is an Encyclical that has the distinction of having been commemorated by solemn Papal documents from its fortieth anniversary to its ninetieth. In our time, the role of human work is becoming increasingly important as the productive factor both of non-material and of material wealth.
A traditional society was passing away and another was beginning to be formed — one which brought the hope of new freedoms but also the threat of new forms of injustice and servitude. 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.
Two things must be emphasized here: Drugs, as well as pornography and other forms of consumerism which exploit the frailty of the weak, tend to fill the resulting spiritual void.

The opening section, in which the right to private property is reaffirmed, is devoted to socialism. Leo XIII is repeating an elementary principle of sound political organization, namely, the more that individuals are defenceless within a given society, the more they require the care and concern of others, and in particular the intervention of governmental authority.
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. This is the right to a “just wage”, which cannot be left to the “free consent of the parties, so that the employer, having paid what was agreed upon, has done his part and seemingly is not called centedimus to do anything beyond”.

Abela – – Journal of Business Ethics 31 2: This is evident from the various initiatives ejciclica have preceded, and which are to accompany and follow the celebration, initiatives promoted by Episcopal Conferences, by international agencies, universities and academic institutes, by professional associations and by other institutions and individuals centeslmus many parts of the world.
Instead, it has been overcome by the non-violent commitment of people who, while always refusing to yield to the force of power, succeeded time after time in finding effective ways of bearing witness to the truth.
To destroy such structures and replace them with more authentic forms of living in community is a task which demands courage and patience. The United Nations, moreover, has not yet succeeded in establishing, as alternatives to war, effective means for the resolution of international conflicts.
Acting either as individuals or joined together in various groups, associations and organizations, these people represent a great movement for the cejtesimus of the human person and the safeguarding of human dignity. This influence is evident in the numerous reforms which were introduced in the areas of social security, pensions, health insurance and compensation in the case of accidents, within the framework of greater respect for the rights of workers.
In doing likewise for the hundredth anniversary, in response to requests from many Bishops, Church institutions, and study centres, as well as business leaders and workers, both individually and as members of associations, I wish first and foremost to satisfy the debt of gratitude which the whole Church owes to this great Pope and his “immortal document”.
Obviously, he also has the responsibility not to hinder others from having their own part of God’s gift; indeed, he anus cooperate with others so that together all can dominate the earth.
Certainly the mechanisms of the market offer secure advantages: Socialism likewise maintains that the good of the cebtesimus can be realized without reference to his free choice, to the unique and exclusive responsibility which he exercises in the face of good or evil. 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.
Man fulfils himself by using his intelligence and freedom.

Through Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross, the victory of the Kingdom of God has been achieved once and for all. But this is true only for those needs which are “solvent”, insofar as they are endowed with purchasing power, and for those resources which are “marketable”, insofar as they are capable of obtaining a satisfactory price.
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.
However, it is not right to demand or expect payment when the effect would be the imposition of political choices leading to hunger and despair for entire peoples. 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, work, the economic process, the reality of the State and, above all, of man himself.
There are goods which by their very nature cannot and must not be bought or sold. But profitability is not the only indicator of a firm’s condition. When this question is eliminated, the culture and moral life of nations are corrupted.
God gave the earth to the whole human race for the sustenance of all its members, without excluding or favouring anyone. In this regard, Rerum novarum points the way to just reforms which can restore dignity to work as the free activity of man. Ames – – Journal of Business Ethics 12 For a long Time the most elementary economic relationships were distorted, and basic virtues of economic life, such as truthfulness, trustworthiness and hard work were denigrated.
