The Servile State


Read by Ray Clare

(4.9 stars; 14 reviews)

A clear boundary exists between the servile and the non-servile condition of labour, and the conditions upon either side of that boundary utterly differ one from another, Where there is compulsion applicable by positive law to men of a certain status, such compulsion enforced in the last resort by the powers at the disposal of the State, there is the institution of Slavery ; and if that institution be sufficiently expanded the whole State may be said to repose upon a servile basis, and is a Servile State. (Hilaire Belloc)

Reviews

an introduction to distributivism by its alternatives

(5 stars)

the nutshell of the book is that society with high inequality tends to naturally shift to a state that accepts slavery. the alternative is to helpthe lower classes become members of a larger class of owners.
