#51 - A Distributist Deep Dive w/ Chris Smaje

March 9, 2022

A deep dive with Chris Smaje on the definition of "ecomodernism", the limits of socialist theory and rhetoric, modes of property ownership, how the "Small Farm Future" aligns with distributism, to what degree we need an "ideology" or "doctrine", re-discovering ecological spirituality, civic republicanism, virtue ethics, peasant revolutions, and the best avenues and organization for practical action (including Extinction Rebellion). 

Sean and Chris discuss political theory over at the latter's blog: https://smallfarmfuture.org.uk/?p=1906
