Conversations about Distributism with trained and professional economists invariably slide into other subjects, as the “experts” despair of ever making clear to the Distributist that he is not being practical, that he is ignorant of the incredible complexity of the mechanics of economics, that normal people do not desire the good sought by Distributism. Distributists, we are told ad nauseam, do not understand the facts. There are technical elements within economics that Distributism simply cannot address.

It is not until someone is able to insist that he desires something entirely different that a difference will be made in how life is lived. To quote from Harold J.

It is not systems that need to change, but the hearts of men that need to be converted through the love of God, by the Love Who is God.
