“There is an economic fault line running throughout America and the world which todays economic gurus seem unable to explain or remedy: the widening wealth and income gap between a tiny rich elite and multitudes of poor in every country (including the United States), and between developed and developing nations.”
You mean there was a time in history when this wasn’t so??

This is obvious class warfare Marxist rhetoric. The Christian is dedicated to spiritual riches, not to schemes that never work.
Distributism was an economic system proposed by Hillaire Belloc and G.K. Chesterton a hundred years ago. It emphasized property ownership, low-level political decision-making, morality, and personal freedom. It was based on Christian moral teachings and was envisioned as being between Capitalism (which Belloc and Chesterton saw as inevitably trending toward Big Government helping Big Money to squeeze out the middle class) and Socialism (which they saw as tyranny by Big Government during everyone into slaves of the state).
It is something of a political cliche is support "capitalism". It's a knee-jerk response. I'm a Conservative, therefore I support "capitalism". Well I look around and I have to admit that capitalism has some flaws. It does tend to get intertwined with Big Government and it does seem to trend toward Fascism.
I'd like a political system where the government could not corrupt the free market. Distributism was designed to be that political system.
