A Good Definition of Distributism

Cows and Computers by Kevin O’Brien

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.”
