Lives of Our Own

Social Credit, Catholicism, and a Distributist Social Order

The general purpose of "Lives of Our Own" is to introduce Social Credit economics to Distributists. There are a number of points of contact as well as important differences between these two schools of alternative economic thinking. Whereas Distributism tends to look toward the past, the economics of the British engineer, C.H. Douglas, is future-oriented while seeking to conserve the best from the pre-capitalist economic tradition. 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.

Beyond that, and even more fundamentally, haggling tacitly presupposes as a distinct possibility (if not probability) that there is a threat of rapacious hostility on the part of the seller. To defend himself from this threat, the buyer is coerced into haggling himself as it is his only means of countering it. For me, the underlying antagonism robs the experience of shopping of whatever pleasure it might otherwise possess.
