Social Solidarity System


Explanation:
This is basically a social security system with a Catholic verbal twist.

Catholic social theory rests on a balancing act involving two opposite but complimentary principles: subsidiarity and solidarity. Subsidiarity (favored by capitalists) vests as much decision making and resource allocation power in the hands of the lowest, least centralized sectors of society (individuals, families, small communities, businesses). Solidarity (favored by socialists) appeals to the larger, more powerful sectors of society (the state) to carry the heavy burdens of society that the lowest sectors cannot carry.

While Catholic social theory painfully tries to straddle both sides, forging a synthesis that the present pope has called "the dignity of the human person," different elements within the world Catholic community tend to lean one way or the other. It appears that the Argentinean authors of this system tried to appeal to the principle of solidarity as a moral basis for the system they are espousing. Thus the name "Social Solidarity System" instead of the more mundane "social security system".
