“Let each one examine his conscience, a conscience that conveys a new message for our times. Is he prepared to support out of his own pocket works and understanding organized in favor of the most destitute? Is he ready to pay higher taxes so that the public authorities can intensify their efforts in favor of development? Is he ready to pay a higher price for imported goods so that the producer may be more justly rewarded?” On the Development of Peoples, #48.
