We must, however, reject the view that the will of the individual or the group is the primary and only source of a citizen’s rights and duties, and of the binding force of political constitutions and the government’s authority.

The order which prevails in society is by nature moral.

Such authority, therefore, cannot be misdirected against the moral order. This means that, if any government does not acknowledge the rights of man or violates them, it not only fails in its duty, but its orders completely lack juridical force.

Since in many parts of the world there are groups of people of varying ethnic backgrounds, we must be on our guard against isolating one ethnic group from its fellow men. It must make sure that working men are paid a just and equitable wage, and are allowed a sense of responsibility in the industrial concerns for which they work.

But since by nature all men are equal in human dignity, it follows that no one may be coerced to perform interior acts. The first is this: No State can be denied this right, for it is a postulate of the natural law itself, as also of international law.
