“If there are people who are hungry, we should busy ourselves about hunger.
It isn’t the moment for discussing neat theories – discussing, for instance, whether this is or isn’t paternalism.
We ought straightaway to start doing whatever is possible, and a bit of the impossible besides!”
Dom Helder Camara, Archibishop of Recife, Brazil, preaching on 11 April 1964
