Read in March, 2009

This book outlines the difference between economic freedom and mere purchasing power, shows how Capitalism and Socialism are basically cut from the same cloth, introduces the economic theory of Distributism, and suggests a plan for return to the Proprietary State, in which people actually own property and use it to create wealth for themselves. Distributism is a more humane economic theory, and the one which I believe is the most natural to mankind.

Hilaire Belloc
“It has been discovered that with a dull urban population, all formed under a mechanical system of State education, a suggestion or command, however senseless and unreasoned, will be obeyed if it be sufficiently repeated.”
