Distributism: Family, Freedom?

I recently finished a book….THE HOUND OF DISTRIBUTISM.

I really liked THIS review given about the book..”

It’s weird….the older I get the more “geeky” I get….the more I desire to read and learn EVERYTHING…especially if it is something I think it is important to understand or learn.  AND…if it pertains to family….faith….and freedom….well I am all about it!

Back to this book…..I have never really understood all the lingo about capitalism versus socialism….and so when this term, distributism, came into the picture it was even more foreign to me.  BUT…I wanted to understand :)….

The more I read…..the more I realized how much I really respect the pillars behind Distributism.

Here is just a few nuggets from the book:

Page 6…contraceptive mentality….responsible for “myopic nature of modern economics”…The foundation of Distributism is ownership…..the essence…self government….self control….self sufficiency…

Page 7…A pillar of Freedom….the foundation of Distributism is ownership.

Page 37…Distributism’s main tenet…property should be as widely distributed as possible and business should be local…

Page 71…Usury…taking of interest…Psalm 7:14…..the calamity of a loan has no remedy…instead it becomes worse…..St. Thomas….”usury is and always will be a sin”…..

Page 93…St. Gertrude…”Property, the more common it is, the more holy it is”…

Page 95….Distributism is a system conformable to the need of man and his nature…

Okay that’s just the beginning!

I decided I want to spend all week or as many days as it takes to write 15 minutes each day on all the notes I took….and share my thoughts with you!

I leave you with this thought:
DO YOU BELIEVE IT IS FUNDAMENTALLY WRONG FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO BORROW IN ORDER TO SAVE HUGE BANDS AND COMPANIES…YET NOT HELP THE “SMALL GUY”!?

That’s just one of the many points that Distributism addresses!

Have a blessed and amazing day!
Hugs and blessings always my dear readers…friends….family….
