Citizenship is in the midstream of American thought. The Communist menace bids man review the foundations of government. Party politics utilizes radio and television in addition to earlier tools of press and propaganda. The great social problems of our time - public and social welfare, the racial question, the conflicts of capital and labor, control of economics-are all related to government and citizenship. Hence the questions concerning the Church's place in this program are more insistent than ever. More specifically: What shall the parish do to train its people for citizenship?
