"And I wish that, in these troubled times, in this degenerate urban atmosphere in which we are living, that you return to the land whenever possible. The land is healthy; the land teaches one to know God; the land draws one to God; it calms temperaments, characters, and encourages the children to work."  JUBILEE SERMON of Archbishop Lefebvre on the occasion of his sacerdotal jubilee, September 23, 1979

How does living on the land "calm temperaments"?  This obsession with traditionalist Catholics with rural, agrarian life is somewhat disturbing.  Should we feel guilty if we choose to live in an urban area and not on some farm out in the middle of knowhere?  I have lived out in the sticks before and I can attest that the rural folk don't seem any more saintly then city dwellers.  If anything, they seem somewhat on the crazy side to me.  There illiterate mannerisms and wild, backwards, attitudes make them hard for most civilized people to get along with.  There religious nature is also way too over exaggerated.  Also, look what kind of religions like to settle out in knowhere land, cults that who!  They like to get "away from it all" so they can exercise greater control over their brainwashed members.  any time I start hearing religious leaders discussing stuff like this, that's what I think of.

Speaking as someone who has been to the countryside:  ???
Are we trollin' here? I have known many people from the countryside, including my father. They never gave me the impression of being illiterate (quite the opposite in fact). And I have witness more cults in the city than in the countryside, where most people simply go to their local Church (even if they're not particular about the sect or denomination).

Maybe you have a point but you seem to be singling out some extreme cases to see how angrily we will react.

Which book to you feel would give a good layman's beginner's approach to distributism?
