Distributist Social Democracy, clipped to DistSocDem, is an economically center-left and culturally variable ideology which seeks widespread ownership of the means of production and a strong welfare state—combining Social Democracy with Distributism. Such an economic model is in sharp contrast to Social Democracy's common present-day manifestation, which is more neoliberal in character. It can also be seen as Social Distributism without the influence of Fourth Theory.
Rather than wanting to 100% change Distributism to suit “socialist views”, he believes that both Social Democracy and Distributism must co-exist and reform themselves to create a merger of the two, leaning into both socialist, democratic and religious values.
DistSocDem finds that a lot of welfare programs and business regulations, when achieved through reform rather than revolution, can lead to higher prosperity for the people, rather than systems of unregulated (laissez-faire) capitalism or socialism, ideologies whom he sees as equally flawed and exploitative, while favoring economic mechanisms such as cooperatives and member-owned mutual organizations as well as small businesses and large-scale competition law reform such as antitrust legislations.
