Veritas et Sapientia – Why Distributism Isn’t “Socialism”

Why Distributism Isn’t “Socialism”

Mandeville, LA – “And this brings us to another reason why some people have accused Chesterton of socialism. They argue that the political creed of distributism, which Chesterton advocated, would involve the coercive redistribution of wealth, something which they rightly perceive to be socialist. The problem is that they do not understand distributism, either what it is or what it isn’t.”

Listen to Mike Church and Joseph Pearce Discuss Distributism

“Distributism, which Chesterton admitted was an ugly word, does not call for the redistribution of wealth but for the restoration of property. It is called distributism because it argues that widely distributed privately-owned property is a healthier basis for society and the economy than a society in which private property is in the hands of a small proportion of the population. It doesn’t call for the government to redistribute wealth but it does call for the government to find ways to encourage people to become property owners.” – Joseph Pearce, Was G.K. Chesterton A Socialist?
