Is Distributism Possible?

By Joseph Pearce
St. Austin Review

In answer to a correspondent who claimed that Distributism was not a practical alternative to our present globalist plutocracy, I sent the following reply, highlighting recent articles I’ve written on the topic:

Thanks for your e-mail. Contrary to the presuppositions and prejudices of those who believe that distributism is impractical or impossible, here are some links to articles of an economic nature that I’ve published with the Imaginative Conservative which will show that this is not the case:

  1. I'm surprised it would be questioned whether it was "possible".

    It's very clearly possible, actually requiring little in the way of structural changes to make it the default in our economy. The larger question would be if it would be practical or advisable.

    On that, in my view, a modified form of it very much would be. That could be achieved by limiting when the corporate or LLC form of business organization was available for use, combined perhaps with restrictions on absentee land ownership.
