Runaway victory for Chavez

Sad news from Venezuela. The Communists are solidifying their hold on the country. While I am sure the left stuffed a few ballot boxes, the size of the victory margin is so large that I have little doubt that Chavez did win fairly. Let us pray for the people of Venezuela as they are being duped into slavery by the Reds.

Our Lady of Coromoto, Patroness of Venezuela, pray for your people!

A pity indeed. I believe the lesson of Latin America for the Church is that neither full support of the right (as sometimes occured before Vatican II) or left (as Maryknoll does today) will succeed. The Church needs to assert itself as no ally of any party, but demand the right give HER loyalty to the Church. Once Vatican II is reversed, this may be possible.
I've never, though, been much of a distributist. Common sense dictates that most people, if given equal allotments of land or othrer capital, unless they were not free to sell it on the market, would eventually cede it to capitalists when hard times came. Why not merely allow economic laissez faire, but closely moniter the capitalists for corruption, while strengthening public piety so the people can be counted upon to act responsibly if the rich attempt to take advantage of them and take command of the state?

Of course, no distributist has ever argued that "people, (should be) given equal allotments of land or othrer capital). That would violate not only the underlying tenets of distributism, but also the Social Magisterium of the Church, both of which say that society should be organised in such a way that the average working man, may, by his own efforts, become an owner.

I'm not surprised you didn't know this, however, given the lies spread about distributism over the last century. To the left, it's fascism, to the libertarians, it's Marxism. Makes me think we might be on the right track!

Crusader, because that "economic laissez faire" that you advocate brought Latin America to the position where it is today.

As Belloc noted in "The Servile State", the abuses of the "laissez faire" types spurred the equally bad anti-solution known as socialism.

Economic and political de-centralization, coupled with strengthening public piety, will help Latin America better than the current Scylla and Caribdis of either Capitalism and Socialism.
