The problem isn’t so much economics, it’s the monetary paradigm. Change that correctly by basing it on the concept of grace and the deepest problems of the economy will be resolved.
Capitalism’s driving force is power and control, Socialism’s is actually the same. Direct Monetary Distributism’s driving force when aligned with the new monetary paradigm of Direct and Reciprocal Monetary Gifting and its equally aligned policies would be grace as in both benevolence and sovereign power. Grace is the pinnacle concept of every one of the world’s major wisdom traditions, is the unitary power of love in action and is the only concept that, self actualized, can effectively unite the opposites of benevolence and sovereignty. Mankind is shaped by its culture. An economy with its ever present-ness in everyone’s life, based on grace, is precisely the cultural instrument needed to lift humanity out of its long adolescence and enslavement by the paradigm of Debt Only.
