Explaining the socio-economic theory of distributism, this anthology argues that political, economic, and social liberties and freedom are penalised under both socialism and capitalism. With distributism -- and other "third way" alternatives to capitalism -- the human person, the family, and the community take precedence over bureaucrats and barons. Society exists for man, not the other way around.
