Greetings To You All!

Laudetur Jesus Christus et Maria Virginae!

Hello everyone. This is Roy F. Moore, columnist for Gilbert Magazine and former contributor to The Distributist Review. Welcome to this new news and opinion web log promoting Distributism and a pro-Traditional Catholic worldview.

What is Distributism?

It is a literal alternative to BOTH Capitalism and Socialism, especially it's Communist and Fascist variants. For a more detailed explanation, please go to the Wikipedia entry on it HERE.

It was co-founded by the great English authors and journalists Hilaire Belloc and Gilbert Keith Chesterton, or GKC to his fans. It has been refined by other great minds over the decades worldwide.

On the American political spectrum, we are neither "liberal" nor "conservative". Chesterton, one of the world's most prolific authors, had this to say about this political divide long ago:

"The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected."

In the upcoming weeks and months, this web log will report on events in America, Canada, Russia and elsewhere from this unique worldview. Plus there will be social and moral commentary ground in the traditional teachings of Catholicism, both Latin and Eastern Rites.

May the Voice help spur you on to work and pray for positive change wherever you live. Thank you for your time and attention.
