I’m about to put a list of links to distributist and agrarian sites in the sidebar over there on the right, starting with that New Agrarians site that Daniel recommended last week. A couple that I’ve known about for a while are www.distributism.com and www.distributism.org. The former includes a link to this excellent introduction to distributism by Thomas Storck. There’s also this blog, The Distributist Review, which I ran across some time ago but haven’t read lately.

If you know of any worthwhile additions to this list, please let us know, either in a comment or by the "Email me" link to the left.

Personally I have a somewhat limited interest in detailed discussions about possible alternative economic  schemes (but don’t let that stop you from having one!). We can’t just start from scratch to invent a new economy, nice as that might be, and I’m more interested in other things. Nevertheless I keep my hand in, so to speak, intellectually, because if there is one sweeping political statement to which I’ll commit myself, it’s that the existing capitalist system is going to have to be somehow tamed if our civilization is not to become an abomination (I know, some would say it already is, but I think we have quite a long way to go yet). And the basic idea of distributism seems to provide the right direction.
