Human beings exist only as beings in action. As Pascal and Plato show, human existence, in contrast to the uniformity and unchangeableness of divine life, is constant movement and change.

Here that freedom of human beings to exist creatively is exhibited which permeates and characterizes also, and indeed preeminently, their political acting toward common goals.
