    Socialism is an ideology used to represent the broad range of ideologies that fall under the umbrella term of "Socialism". In the classical sense, socialism describes worker-owned means of production, heavily supporting worker coups, democratic self-management, and workplace democracy. But much of the conservative western world says that socialism is an authoritarian leftist ideology, in which a bureaucratic state controls the means of production, in a bureaucratic way. But the modern definition of the word socialism, popularised by European Socdem.png Social Democrats, and the Dsa.png Democratic Socialists of America, is "any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods." Socialism in the modern age advocates workers' democratic self-management, high taxation on the wealthy, nationalisation over key parts of industry, and preventing climate change. Socialism is always economically left, and culturally neutral however has found itself becoming synonymous with progressivism mostly in the west at the most recent times. But you do get ideologies like Consocf.png Conservative Socialism and more extreme ones like Strasser.png Strasserism and Nazbol.png National Bolshevism, that combine Socialist economics, with conservative cultural preservation, due to their shared Pop.png Populist standpoint.

    History (WIP)

    Socialism as a political movement is rooted in the French Revolution and Jack.png Jacobinism, although notable proto-socialist figures and movements existed before this. The first socialist thinkers were social critics and philosophers of the 19th century from Western Europe. These socialist thinkers followed what would later be dubbed, by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, Utsoc.png Utopian Socialism, due to their lack of materialist analysis and bourgeois nature. Among these thinkers were Charles Fourier, Henri de Saint-Simon, and Robert Owen. Despite all these thinkers being considered Utopian Socialists, their philosophies differed greatly in many ways, with Owen's ideology resembling Socialism in the modern sense more so than the other two.

    Robert Owen would go on to develop several socialist communes and villages, being the first to attempt to actualize a socialist society, though these projects were often on a small scale and subject to much criticism.

    In France, during the first half of the 19th century, socialist philosophers and politicians continued to popularize socialism. It is in France during this time that many socialists started to reject the gradualism and utilization of utopian communes of the older Utopian Socialists. The term "socialism" was first used in a French Utopian Socialist newspaper. There also emerged a Christsoc.png Christian Socialist movement in France led by Philippe Buchez. Moreover, during this time, French socialist literature, which would prove to be highly consequential, was being published, most notably What Is Property? by Mutalist.png Pierre-Joseph Proudhon.

    In the 19th century, Awaj.png Anarchism as a movement arose, and was incorporated into the socialist movement. This is seen with thinkers such as the aforementioned Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, whose socialistic anarchism was market-oriented, as well as with more communistic anarchists, like the Russian Mikhail Bakunin, who sought a Acol.png collectivist anarchist society which would utilize labor vouchers, as well as the prominent Ancom.png anarchist communist Peter Kropotkin, who sought a completely communistic society, devoid of any form of currency whatsoever. Anarchism when combined with socialist principles would later come to be known as Socan2.png Social Anarchism.

    Ormarxf.png Marxism, which arose from Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, became the most influential socialist philosophy in history. Marx and Engels ideas on philosophy, political economy, sociology and history were influenced primarily by Hegel.png George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Clib.png classical economists such as Adam Smith and David Ricardo, the earlier utopian socialists, and socialist ideals which arose in revolutionary France. Marx and Engels devised a materialist philosophy of history known as historical materialism, and called their form of socialism "scientific socialism" in contrast with utopian socialism. Marxism differed from Utopian Socialism in that it viewed history as a series of class struggles, and saw moving towards socialism within capitalism as futile, instead advocating for revolution.

    • Stalin.png Stalinism - I have many internal conflicts about you. On one hand, you defeated fascism and showed the world how powerful socialist countries can be. On the other hand, you are the reason why so many people in the west are scared of socialism and don't know what it really is!
