Example text

In a word, what is needed is a cosmic effort of all, by all, for all. This is not Utopia, but the only realistic road to take if we are to avoid falling into the maelstrom of a new barbarism. Far from being an illusory ideal, the call for a civilization of universal solidarity is an imperative if the world is not to be destroyed by its own weapons, or submerged in chaotic depths which but accentuate divisions among classes, nations, blocks, races, and individuals. The choice is quite simply: aim high or sink completely.

Collective responsibility It is not a question, however, solely or even mainly of individual morality, of mere personal responsibility. On the contrary: at issue here are collective responsibility and obligation. Rich and advanced nations have duties toward poor nations. And “underdeveloped” nations have a duty to provide all their subjects, within the limits of real possibilities and taking all circumstances into account, the opportunity to have enough goods to live undiminished human lives in all human registers – spiritual, intellectual, artistic, social, familial, personal, psychological, and biological.

I refer here to primordial (“first order”) goods: a minimum supply of food to stay alive, some balanced variety in this food, suitable lodging, feasible access to the education needed for individuals to deploy their potential, social and political conditions which favor peace and justice. Numerous disagreements obviously arise over definitions of peace, justice, education, freedom, democracy. Nevertheless, in many arenas of action, many of these differing ideas are not directly at issue. To illustrate, one may readily imagine a Marxist activist wanting to improve the lot of workers in order to give them greater power to engage in class struggle to build a grandiose society.
