John XXIII on Social Rights

April 11, 1963

Moreover, man has a natural right to be respected. He has a right to his good name. He has a right to freedom in investigating the truth, and within the limits of the moral order and the common good to freedom of speech and publication, and to freedom to pursue whatever profession he may choose. He has the right, also, to be accurately informed about public events. He has the natural right to share in the benefits of culture, and hence to receive a good general education, and a technical or professional training consistent with the degree of educational development in his own country.
