Solidarity and Equivalence in Social Systems
Solidarity and equivalence are long-term issues in all social systems in advanced countries. At first glance it may appear that the two principles act against one another, though in reality there are lots of very close ties between them – to the extent that social systems are constructed as universal the principle of solidarity asserts itself, while to the extent that social systems are constructed according to levels of income from economic activities the principle of equivalence asserts itself. It is just the extent to which those individual principles should be enforced that makes it such a fundamental question when deciding on modifications to individual social systems. The paper is thinking of theoretical solutions of the principle of equivalence and solidarity and their use in individual social systems in the future. It brings arguments the extent of solidarity is too large and that is why the principle of equivalence needs to be strengthened.
