    One thought on “The Hound of Distributism”

    1. To the contributors of this book and those convinced by the claims found within, I propose further reflection on Chesterton's words (quoted in the book), "Now a man may quite reasonably disapprove of this systemHe may say quite truly that it has evils of its own. He may say quite tenably that in his view those evils outweigh the good." I say this because the general tone presented is the choice between holy distributism or the twin evils of capitalism and socialism.This has to be one of the most [...]

    2. A collection of essays, most of them already released, on Distributism, the economical theory / social philosophy, which G. K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc helped to propose. In many targets, it corresponds to what we call today Subsidiarity. Very sad the standard intellectual is not interested on studying it. It happens because it reflects in large parts the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church, very unpopular, so scholars will be attacked and won't do money. The author does an awesome expla [...]

    3. This is an excellent introduction to Distributism from a number of it's fine proponents. Distributism refers to the political and economic theory promoted most notably by G.K. Chesterton. It emphasizes wide ownership through the Catholic social principles of Subsidiarity and Solidarity. Comprised of a variety of articles addressing different aspects of Distributist thought, this book reads quickly and enjoyably. I would highly recommend this book!

    4. Very interesting collection of essays about a lesser known political belief of distributism. Whole book presents an interesting case for the distributism, however a few essays are almost too basic, most are very intriguing (especially eg. Phillipe Blond one). A good introduction to the concept of distributism. The whole book is backed up by Christian (mainly Catholic) philosophy and ideas of Hilaire Belloc and Gilbert Chesterton.
