The Stark Truth: Interview with John Médaille

All about Distributivism.

It’s always seemed to me that the appropriate economic paradigm for anarcho-pluralism/pan-secessionism would be a synthesis of distributivist ideas like John promotes and the ideas of classical libertarian socialism of the kind Larry Gambone has described in detail incorporated into a broader ideological framework of libertarian anti-state in the way Kevin Carson has written about. It beats the hell out of the Left’s “More taxes! More welfare! More regulation!” positions.


Robert interviews John Médaille. Topics include:

  • Flaws of current monopoly based economic situtation;
  • Introduction to distributism;
  • Distributist success stories;
  • Distributist solutions to government, taxes, & healthcare.
  • Implementing & promoting distributism.
