Social Credit, Catholicism, and a Distributist Social Order

The general purpose of "Lives of Our Own" is to introduce Social Credit economics to Distributists.

In general, Social Credit may be described as a species of archaeo-futurism, a re-interpretation and application of certain Distributist principles to the modern, industrial world.

    Indeed, Social Credit itself, as a social vision involving monetary, economic, and political reform, is firmly ensconced in a broader Tory framework. That is to say, Social Credit is the fruit of authentic Tory thinking and it is also the necessary means, as I hope to soon illustrate, for the restoration of an authentically Tory political regime.
