»It is not work that makes human beings what they are.«
– Pope Johannes Paul II
More and more married people are getting divorced and an increasing number of children are being born out of marriage. We do not have the right to judge this development. Neither can we solve the problems between people which arise become of this. But we can solve the maintenance problems, which have hitherto led to extreme injustice and great suffering.
Like all other people, single parents and their children have a right to unconditional participation. They have the right to contribute to the common good and receive 1,000 gradidos a month. Single parents with two children, for example, together have the right to a basic income of 3,000 gradidos. Of course, children make a contribution to the common good appropriate for children – work that is fun and consistent with their abilities.
Hence, single parents and their children are no longer at a disadvantage. As equal members of the community they enjoy great respect, a good income and the satisfying feeling of belonging.
