"The progress and vitality of humanity requires a coherent relationship between the material and non-material dimensions of human life...if wealth is accumulated by the oppression and domination of others, how can we hope to mobilize the material, intellectual, and moral resources needed to eradicate poverty?...The eradication of poverty cannot be conceived in terms of improving the material wealth of the poor alone. It is a larger undertaking rooted in relationships that define the interactions between individuals, communities and nations and it is inextricably linked to the extremes of both poverty and wealth."
