JOIN US, AND HELPBUILD A DISTRIBUTISTSOCIETY.
We cannot continue to depend on an exhaustedgovernment or a limitless market. Families needhealthy food, educational alternatives, andcommunities principally producing for themselvesin order to contribute to a materially adequateand spiritually wealthy society.Distributist economies benefit the community byproviding an unmatched competitive advantageover their capitalist and socialist counterparts.Whether through the historical guilds of Europe,the current worldwide success of cooperatives,credit unions, home-based businesses, or micro-credit banking, the distributist model is proven tooffer the greatest ownership diversification of anyof its contemporaries.We are neither progressives nor conservatives.Our beliefs stem from a traditional recognition of the family as the central and most basic unit of society and the interdependent role of neighborsand community.The mission of
The Society for Distributism
