BELLOC ON CAPITALISM’S BIRTH

Thanks to our colleague at Athanasius Contra Mundum, we have an excerpt from Hilaire Belloc’s The Servile State. This work is one of the five “foundation stones” of Distributist Thought.

This excerpt deals with the origins of Capitalism and it’s effect on the average man. Read it and ponder it. And then act on what you ponder.

What are regarded as the the other foundation stones?

My guesses for candidates would be "The Restoration of Property", "An Outline of Sanity" and the three major Social Encyclicals, "Rerum Novarum", "Quadragesimo Anno" and " Centesimus Annus" (or maybe "Laborem Exercens")
