      Honestly, I have only fully read “The Man Who Was Thursday”. I have been turned off by “distributism” which strikes me as only limited socialism.

But he did oppose the socialism propagated by Shaw and Wells, detested the eugenics theories running rampant at the time, and was a raging Catholic in a sea of Protestants, all of which annoyed the British of his day, and God knows I love a good contrarian.
