- REPORT ON THE SOCIAL DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH
Why does politics believe that the nation-state is overrun by unstoppable globalization and thereby condemns itself? The XI Report on the Social Doctrine of the Church in the World issued by the Cardinal Van Thuân Observatory is dedicated to this problem. The nation is configured as a "homeland" precisely because it has its roots in the "fathers" and John Paul said that duty to the homeland derives from the fourth commandment: Honour your father and mother. This is why its necessary to recuperate this concept in the face of the current unstoppable forced globalism.
