TheLawDog's Intellectual Series on Economic Considerations, and Forms of Government.

From the comment thread in Columcille's last post:

I'll tell you what I am going to do. I am going to use the Outline of Sanity as a starting point for meaningful discussion and (unlike Columcille), I'll start a real series discussing the pros and cons of Chesterton's notion of distributism. I can envision a series of substantive posts going through three or 4 points each, and contasting them with what I'd like to see where I disagree with his approach. We then can hash out the details in the comments.

You want meaningful debate? That's the way to do it. I expect that the first post will come in 3 weeks or so. . . . Also it'd be nice if you didn't try to pre-empt me on that. I think having "an avowed capitalist" begin by going through Chesterton's work (who is beyond reproach, of course), is the best way to get this ball rolling, Columcille. We can then confine discussion to the limited points, and really get into good discussion.

So begins TheLawDog's Intellectual Series on Economic Considerations, and Forms of Government.

[My Update to this]: I think this will be fun, and perhaps provide a platform for this blog to take on a whole host of political science and philosophical issues. Are you game?
