Kevin gives a clear idea of what distributism is in this post.
He says that the people in his Chesterton group came up with this:
- Instead of criticizing Capitalism as Capitalism, we agreed that its current form in the U.S., which my friend Tom Richard calls Corporatism, is dreadfully broken.
- Corporatism’s political arm, the One Party System disguised as the Two Party System, is likewise a disaster.
It is a good idea to avoid comparing Distributism to Capitalism, because Distributism is really a kind of small scale capitalism. As Chesterton said, “The problem with capitalism is not too many capitalists, but not enough capitalists.”
