    Social Democracy, often clipped to SocDem (or Succdem.png SuccDem by ideologies that disagree or despise it), is an economically centre-left ideology. It is usually Prgess.png culturally left, albeit not exclusively. It advocates for Welf.png strong welfare programs, unionization, with the addition of vast Regulationism.png regulation. It is often confused with Dsa.png Democratic Socialism, or sometimes socialism in general. Despite often being called a "socialist" by right-wing ideologies, Social Democracy is often excluded from Leftunity.png leftist circles as well due to their support for reforming Cap.png capitalism rather than abolishing it. Social Democracy finds that a lot of welfare programs and business regulations, when achieved through Left Reformism.png reform rather than revolution, can lead to higher prosperity for the proletariat, rather than systems of Lfree.png unregulated capitalism or Soc-h.png socialism.


    Historically, Social Democracy was used interchangeably with Demsocstar.png Democratic Socialism, which has seen a revival in the Cball-US.png United States since Sanders.png Bernie Sanders' rise in popularity. After World War 2, Social Democracy becomes its own identity and promoted a strong welfare state under a Cap.png capitalist economy. Social Democracies have been established in Europe and other types of the world as follows: Cball-India.png India since the establishment of the DPSP, the Cball-France.png Republic of France during the 1930's before Nazi.png German Occupation, Cball-Australia.png Australia ever since WWII, Cball-SriLanka.png Sri Lanka since the early 1940's, Cball-France.png the French Republic after the fall of nazi France, Nordmodel.png Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland.

    Beliefs and Views

    Social Democracy is a CLeft.png center-left ideology that believes in a mixed economy with a Welf.png welfare state funded by progressive taxation. They believe in re-distributing wealth via taxes to make Cap.png capitalism more humane.

    They subscribe to the Lib.png Liberal interpretation of human rights. That being the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Social Democrats alter the Lib.png Liberal interpretation of 'human rights' to include equality, justice, and solidarity.

    To make it simpler, here are the 3 principles of Social Democracy.


    Social Democracy believes in a liberal democratic framework, Liberal Democracy.png Liberal democracy is a form of system operating under the civic principles of Clib.png classical liberalism. But however, Social Democratic economics are somewhat different from classical liberalism.

    In order to preserve Liberalism, negative rights and positive rights must be balanced. Positive rights such as right to health and right to an adequate standard of living are respected. Negative rights like freedom of speech and property rights are strengthened.


    This is mainly connects to Social Democracy's beliefs and views in Social Justice, Equality.png Social Equality, taxation, and welfare.

    Social Democracies tend to support a universalist welfare. Instead of only subsidizing private services or giving them to the needy, the provisions are available for everyone. The supported policies are universal childcare, care for the elderly, education, healthcare and workers' compensation.


    Mainly connects to Monkeyzz-Enlightenment.png Enlightenment Enlightnenment.png ideals of equality under the law and human rights.


    Social Democracy is generally portrayed as being quite care-taking of other people, even if they may not like it. They are occasionally mistaken for Dsa.png Democratic Socialism. He usually doesn't like this if he's in Cball-EU.png Europe, but if he's in Cball-US.png America, he'll proudly call himself a democratic socialist. He will get very mad at LeftCom.png Left Communism and Marxlen.png Marxism–Leninism whenever they call him a "Social Fascist".

    1. Ernst Thälmann and the Communist Party of Germany targeted Social Democrat politicians instead, because they thought Nazis coming to power would accelerate the collapse of capitalism, which at the time seemed preferable to the slow and reformist nature of moderate Marxists in the SDP
