A Reasonable Critique of Distributism.

Found and further annotated by the always-thoughtful Shawn McElhinney.

Actually, the critique is directed more at what the article terms "neo-distributists," but since I am sick to death of the prefix "neo-", I titled the post accordingly.

I'm pretty sympathetic to distributism as a general rule, but the critique captures the fatal flaw of the philosophy--application: it would take a battle-axe in the hands of a functionally-totalitarian state to implement.

Which is diametrically opposed to the goals of the movement, when you come down to it.
