A new hearing for distributists?
October 18, 2011
Distributism--an economic theory promoted by Catholic thinkers like Chesterton and Belloc in the early 20th century--is enjoying a new hearing, thanks to the British Anglican theologian Phillip Blond.
Speaking to an audience in Washington, DC, Blond explained that distributism aims to break the economic dominance of the elite. “Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party are essentially different expressions of the same phenomenon,” he said--the desire to break away from an economic system based on exploitation.
