Abstract

From Hilaire Belloc (1870 – 1953)'s point of view, capitalism would have led British society to a practical servile state. Convinced that socialism is not a real solution to that problem, he supports the creation of a political-economic system based on representation by intermediate bodies and modelled on medieval Guilds. This study aims to compare Belloc's ideas with some visions of guildist and christian socialism which are common in early XX Century England (see e.g. A. Penty; G.D.H. Cole; S.G. Hobson; J. Ramsay MacDonald). Connection between servile state and aristocratic state elaborated by Belloc is pointed out in the analysis of The House of Commons, published by Belloc in 1920, and reproduced in the appendix.
