It has taken many years for the false system in which we live to develop to the point at which it became topheavy and collapsed. It may take many more years to make good the damage. Rome was not rebuilt in a day. If by some lucky stroke, it became possible to legislate in this country and on the Continent for the protection of the small craftsman, the ownership of property by the average member of the community and the return of responsibility to the family, the possibility might soon be realised of yet another collapse. Then there would follow an attempt to make men free by force in more complex circumstances than those in which the American slaves were freed. And the attempt might easily fail. But on that we need not speculate. The industrialized countries, because of the effects of industrialism, are unlikely to witness any sudden return to normality by Government action. There is more likelihood of slow but steady recovery continued perhaps for generations, through the efforts of individuals in practical work and in the exertion of whatever influence they can have on their neighbours. -Excerpt from Two Difficulties By G.K. Chesterton / 2 December 2011/ The Distributist Review
G.K. Chesterton has described accurately our current Global Socio-Political Economic State with greater clarity than any other. While this may seem a boisterous claim consider for a moment how hard and how long the forces perpetuating The False System have dismissed him and his writings hoping they would fade away quietly.
Exactly the opposite happened with the growing unrest of the Global Population. G.K. Chesterton and the Socio-Political Economic Theory of Distributism are increasing in popularity with the common man of all nationalities and cultures.
The rulers of The False System are becoming ever increasingly violent in their attempts to cover up the failures of their systems. Let us just call it Perpetual War turned Domestic War for now.
The politico-socio culture of the city-state in America has failed. Many examples such as Detroit, Chicago, and Philadelphia exist. New York City under the rule of Michael Bloomberg has seen the destruction and loss of middle-income residents and the small family based business in favor of a wealthy-poor two-tier population and the flight of businesses to Florida, South Carolina and Texas. It says a lot when the owner of the majority of parking garages in NYC can outlaw street parking, restrict vehicles from neighborhoods of their friends and provide essential city services to the same neighborhoods and friends while the poor die.
Important questions we have to ask ourselves, why the big push by The False System:
- Why the application of steel fisted, burdensome Environmental (EPA), Taxation (IRS), Agriculture and Food (USDA and FDA) regulations on the small and family owned agriculture, farming system and other small businesses, the artisan and craftsman?
- What is the primary objective of forcing people from their homes and lands (private property)?
- What is the primary objective of the state sanctioned hostility towards homeschooling?
The last word on this given to G.K. Chesterton:
We know that the way to cure the ills of our civilisation is to bring about a real conception of liberty, to restore the dignity of man and the independence of the family, properly safeguarded by the distribution of property. Wealth and power have become the possession of the few, the State has limped authority belonging rightly to the family and the craftsman has been reduced to the level of a serf. But two difficulties must be overcome before the cure can be applied. One is that liberty cannot be established by a minority powerless in politics; the other that an increasing number of people seems willing to sacrifice their liberty and the liberty of their families for some nominal sort of economic security. -Excerpt from Two Difficulties By G.K.
