This is true in all the many meanings of the word. It is the departure of a person who is also a member of a great community united by history, tradition and culture; and that person must begin life in the midst of another society united by a different culture and very often by a different language.

Abuse of the strike weapon can lead to the paralysis of the whole of socioeconomic life, and this is contrary to exsrcens requirements of the common good of society, which also corresponds to the properly understood nature of work itself.

Instead, we must leave the context of these issues and go back to the fundamental issue of human work, which is the main subject of the considerations in this document.

Having to abandon these tasks in order to take up paid work outside the home is wrong from the point of view of the good of society and of the family when it contradicts or hinders these primary goals of the mission of a mother It is likewise familiar to those at an intellectual workbench; to scientists; to those who bear the burden of grave responsibility for decisions that will have a vast impact on society.

However, it is also a fact that, in some instances, technology can cease to be man’s ally and become almost his enemy, as when the mechanization of work “supplants” him, taking away all personal satisfaction and the incentive to creativity and responsibility, when it deprives many workers of their previous employment, or when, through exalting the machine, it reduces man to the status of its slave.

Everything contained in the concept of capital in the strict sense is only a collection of things. They will very probably involve a reduction or a less rapid increase in material well-being for the more developed countries.

This is also in a sense true in the sphere of what are called service industries, and also in the sphere of research, pure or applied. This concerns in a special way ownership of the means of production.

Even if in controversial questions the struggle takes on a character of opposition towards others, this is because encicliac aims at the good of social justice, not encickica the sake of “struggle” or in order to eliminate the opponent. While we accept that for certain well founded reasons exceptions can be made to the principle of private ownership-in our own time we even see that the system of “socialized ownership” has been introduced-nevertheless the personalist argument still holds good both on the level of principles and on the practical level.

The name of this institution is very significant. The sources of the dignity of work are to be sought primarily in the subjective dimension, not in the objective one.

It is laborrm the only means of checking, but it is a particularly important one and, in a sense, the key means.

Furthermore it must never be forgotten that, when essential community services are in question, they must in every case be ensured, if necessary by means of lablrem legislation. Just efforts to secure the rights of workers who are united by the same profession should always take into account the limitations imposed by the general economic situation of the country.

This is an advantageous and positive phenomenon, on condition that the objective dimension of work does not gain the upper hand over the subjective dimension, depriving man of his dignity and inalienable rights or reducing them. While people sometimes speak of periods of “acceleration” in the economic life and civilization of humanity or of individual nations, linking these periods to the progress of science and technology and especially to discoveries which are decisive for social and economic life, at the same time it can be said that none of these phenomena of “acceleration” exceeds the essential content of what was said in that most ancient of biblical texts.

Each and every individual, to the proper extent and in an incalculable number of ways, takes part in the giant process whereby man “subdues the earth” through his work. The various bodies involved in the world of labour, both the direct and the indirect employer, should therefore by means of effective and appropriate measures foster the right of disabled people to professional training and work, so that they can be given a productive activity suited to them.

It is familiar to women, who, sometimes without proper recognition on the part of society and even of their own families, bear the daily burden and responsibility for their homes and the upbringing of their children.

Even when it is accompanied by toil and effort, work is still something good, and so man develops through love for work.

This way of looking at work was widespread especially in the first half of the nineteenth century. This consideration does not however have a purely descriptive purpose; it is not a brief treatise on economics or politics. Commitment to justice must be closely linked with commitment to peace in the modern world. Following tlle lines laid dawn by the Encyclical Rerum Novarum and exercdns later documents of the Church’s Magisterium, it must be frankly recognized that the reaction against the system of injustice and harm that cried to heaven for vengeance 13 and that weighed heavily upon workers in that period of rapid industrialization was justified from the point of view of social morality.

Since 15 Enficlica of the present year was the ninetieth anniversary of the publication by the great Pope of the “social question”, Leo XIII, of the decisively important Encyclical which begins with the words Rerum Novarum, I wish to devote this document to human work and, even more, to man in the vast context of the reality of work.

While admitting that it is a legitimate means, we must at the same time emphasize that a strike remains, in a sense, an extreme means. John Paul recommends instead a philosophy of personalism.

This universality and, at the same time, this multiplicity of the enciclic of “subduing the earth” throw light upon human work, because man’s dominion over the earth is achieved in and by means of work. Nevertheless, these two aspects of work are linked to one another and are mutually complementary in various points. This is a fact that without any doubt demonstrates that both within the individual political communities and in their relationships on the continental and world level there is something wrong with the organization of work and employment, precisely at the most critical and socially most important points.

All that has been said above on the subject of the indirect employer is aimed at defining these relationships more exactly, by showing the many forms of conditioning within which these relationships are indirectly formed. Christian tradition has never upheld this right as absolute and untouchable.
