I’ve been circulating this post by Fr. D because I think it’s an important contribution to the conversation and deserves to be read far and wide. His final points are in tune with Distributism, so they caught my attention even though I see some practical problems in implementing them. He fleshes out a bit of the Distributism link in his follow-up, without ever using the “D” word.
In any case, it’s certainly an appealing alternative to the looming bureaucratic nightmare that is Obamacare. I offer it as a counterpoint to my own comments on last week’s SCOTUS decision. I can argue with individual points, but the contours of his argument are strong.
