Distributism and the Web

Distributism is about giving as many families as possible the means of production. In the past, this largely meant land and tools, the space and means of making one's own living in cooperation with others. These days, there is a new kind of space, cyber-space, and new means, computers and networks. And while these new things, these rerum novarum, will never displace the old, they can augment them, providing a new center of resistance to the capitalist tendency to concentrate wealth and power in the hands of a few at the expense of the many. Don Ward has written an interesting article on this topic, Distributism and Web 2.0. Check it out!
