The economic system itself and the production process benefit precisely when these personal values are fully respected. The Church is firmly committed to this cause, for she considers it her mission, her service, a proof of her fidelity to Christ, so that she can truly be the “Church of the poor”.

She is confirmed in this conviction by considering the whole heritage of the many sciences devoted to man: There is a lack of forms of legal protection for the agricultural workers themselves and for their families in case of old age, sickness or unemployment. Work is, as has been said, an obligation, that is to say, a duty, on the part of man. The conditions of the rural population and of agricultural work vary from place to place, and the social position of agricultural workers differs from country to country.

It was the reaction against the degradation of man as the subject of work, and against the unheard-of accompanying exploitation in the field of wages, working conditions and social security for the worker. This reaction united the working world in a community marked by great solidarity.

Thus everything that is at the service of work, everything that in the present state of technology constitutes its ever more highly perfected “instrument”, is the result of work. At the same time, however, I am making them, according to the indication in the Gospel, in order to bring out from the heritage of the Gospel “what is new and what is old” 7.

At the present stage of technological advance, when man, who is the subjectof work, wishes to make use of this collection of modern instruments, the means of production, he must first assimilate cognitively the result of the work of the people who invented those instruments, who planned them, built them and perfected them, and who continue to do so.

The International Organizations have an enormous part to play in this area. While in the present document we return to this question once more-without however any intention of touching on all enxiclica topics that concern it-this is not merely in order to gather together and repeat what is already contained in the Church’s teaching.

The only chance there seems to be for radically overcoming this error is through adequate changes both in theory and in practice, changes in line with the definite conviction of the primacy of the person over things, and of human labour over capital as a whole collection of means of production. However, it is common knowledge that in the present system of economic relations exwrcens the world there are numerous links between individual States, links that find expression, for instance, in the import and export process, that is to say, in the mutual exchange of economic goods, whether raw materials, semimanufactured goods, exeercens finished industrial products.

The call to solidarity and common action addressed to the workers-especially to those engaged in narrowly specialized, monotonous and depersonalized work in industrial plants, when the machine tends to dominate man – was important and eloquent from the point of view of social ethics.

All this pleads enciclic favour of the moral obligation to link industriousness as a virtue with the social order of work, which will enable man to become, in work, “more a human being” and not be degraded by it not only because of the wearing out of his physical strength which, at least up to a certain point, is inevitablebut especially through damage to the dignity and subjectivity that are proper to him.

In view of this situation we must first of all recall a labogem that has always been taught by the Church: These links also create mutual dependence, and as a result it would be difficult to speak, in the case of any State, even the economically most powerful, of complete self-sufficiency or encicliac. The obligation to provide unemployment benefits, that is to say, the duty exrecens make suitable grants indispensable for the subsistence of unemployed workers and their families, is a duty springing from the fundamental principle of the moral order in this sphere, namely the principle of the common use of goods or, to put it in another and still simpler way, the right to life and subsistence.
