Definition of Socialism: Intermediary phase between Initial Marxist idealism and the state of Communism.

Definition of Socialism: 1) The older ideology with "collective" ownership of power and means of production; 2) Marx's "Dictatorship Of The Proletariat" evolving toward Communist Utopia.

Vic Biorseth, http://www.CatholicAmericanThinker.com

And old ideology involving "collectives" and collective control of power, and collective ownership of the "means of production” favoring a strong sense of egalitarianism over individual rights, i.e., freedom. "Means of production" is defined as all land, farm equipment, mines, factories, mills, business offices, housing, energy, etc., necessary to produce all the food, housing, energy, clothing and goods and services required on a day to day basis by the citizenry of a whole society. Socialism also means collective (state) ownership of all capital, which is to say, the government (state) is the sole banker for the society. The goal is to achieve total equality - meaning equality not of rights or before the law, but rather, equality of wealth, status and condition - among the citizenry, which can only be achieved at the expense of individual liberty.

(Note well that when a man achieves total equality with all other men, he has given up all individual human rights, with the sole exception of one single citizen right: the right to be exactly the same as everyone else. This is, of course, an unachievable worldly right, except when everyone is dead.)

With the advent of Marxism, the term Socialism was largely taken over to describe the "evolutionary" (but really, revolutionary) phase of society known as the "dictatorship of the Proletariat (worker class)" leading to eventual Communist Utopia. Marx referred to Socialism as an unpleasant but necessary phase in the "evolution" of society.

No nation that ever entered this so called “evolutionary phase" of Socialism ever advanced beyond it.

The theoretical classless society of Communist utopia is, in truth, merely a red herring false cover for those seeking to gain ultimate ruling power, either through violent revolution or by trickery. Ultimate Communism is quite impossible.

Socialism is, in truth, the ultimate aim of all Communist movements. All nations that ever called themselves Communist were (or are) in reality, Socialist.

Socialism equals Dictatorship by another name.

Lincoln described our unique American form of representative government as “government of the people, by the people, for the people”. Socialism opposes representative government on the theory that the masses are not wise enough to govern themselves and are therefore in need of an intellectual elite to rule them and make important life decisions for them. Elections in Socialist lands are always either corrupted or sham elections. Most usually, when elections are held at all, there is only one candidate representing one and only one political Party. Bureaucrats and government officials gain and hold office at the sole discretion of the dictator.

As a society moves from representative government, or any form of government, toward Socialism there is a steady and relentless migration of political and economic power from the citizenry up to the central government. When total Socialism is achieved, the central government holds all political and economic power, and the people hold none.

The “Communist dream” promises to eliminate world hunger and poverty; it is a false dream, feeding a false ideology. Existing history proves that all Socialism has ever done is to kill many tens of millions of people, perhaps even hundreds of millions, and bring poverty, cruelty and brutality to whole nations and vast territories.

Question: How many starving or impoverished people has Socialism ever fed or enriched in any way?

Answer: Absolutely none.

No matter how “benign” any given Socialist dictator may appear to be, it must always be remembered that he is not the last dictator, only the current one. There will be another. And another. History will not stop.

Obama is clearly a collectivist and a redistributionist, who has stated that he views our Constitutional Bill of Rights as a “set of negative constraints on government” spelling out what the US government cannot do to the people, while failing to say what he and other Socialists think the US government should do for the people. He will move us toward or into Socialism just as far as he is able, which means cutting back on individual rights and promoting social sameness.

Definitions of all the "isms" with a lot of consensus of thinking behind them, which makes them popular opinions or ideas seeking political favor.

Definition of Marxism: Total control of means of production, including workers. The definition of Marxism describes the social, economic and governmental philosophy of Karl Marx, co-author of the Communist Manifesto.

Definition of Freudianism: The psychoanalytical thought and practice of Freud, Jung and Kinsey. This definition of Freudianism addresses Sigmund Freud's turn of psychological focus from cognition and intellect to the unconscious & subconscious mind.

The definition of Darwinism in a nutshell. In the definition of Darwinism we find the foundational priciples upon which the quest for the atheist holy grail: the purely material origin of life itself.

Definition of Islam: Ideology of Military Conquest Masquerading as a Religion. The Definition of Islam describes the “Convert, Submit or Die” War Strategy of Mohammed.

The term Marxist defined: Marxism today has overtaken many earlier terms. Re the term Marxist defined in contemporary usage. The term Liberal doesn’t mean what it used to mean either.

Definition of Conservatism: "That government is best that governs the least." A definition of conservatism must recognize that, politically speaking, the terms Liberal and Conservative have traded places.

Definition of Libertarian : A Pro-Constitutional Practical Atheist. The definition of Libertarian describes a religiously-cleansed conservatism defending core American political values while denying moral absolutes. 

Definition of Capitalism: Economic Organization based on Private Property. Any true definition of Capitalism must state that it is purely an Economic system, not a Government system, and it works most efficiently and profitably under Representative Government.

Our argument supporting the Rule of Subsidiarity, practicality and common sense. The moral and organizational Rule of Subsidiarity is crucial to the rights of man and essential for freedom.

Definition of Communism: Marx's theoretical classless utopian society. The Marxian definition of Communism involves the theoretical, perfect, classless society with common ownership of all economic "means of production."

Definition of Fascism: System of Marxism resisting the Worker's Revolution. A true definition of Fascism must recognize its deep roots in Marxism. 

Definition of Anarchy: Opposition to State Authority in favor of - well - Gangs. They said it couldn’t be done; but even the most cursory Definition of Anarchy shows it to be even more stupid than Communism.

Definition of Socialism: Intermediary phase between Marxism and Communism. Definition of Socialism: 1) The older ideology with "collective" ownership of power and means of production; 2) Marx's "Dictatorship Of The Proletariat" evolving toward Communist Utopia.

Definition of Democracy: Ideology stressing direct or electoral majority rule. The definition of Democracy as a form of government involves policy and law determined by the actual, real majority of the people governed.

Definition of Republic: A state in which sovereignty rests with the people. This definition of Republic stresses autonomy and rule-of-law, and places the root of sovereignty in the people or their electorate.

Liberal Democracy defines elected representative government under rule-of-law. Liberal Democracy is differentiated from Social Democracy by not restricting the right to private property, which is to say, the means of production.

A pure Democracy that left the natural economy alone would be ideal. Pure Democracy in the Jeffersonian model, with unfettered free market Capitalism, would out-perform any other system.

Description of pure Socialism - the ideal that all Socialism is driving toward. A true, pure Socialism would be something considerably less than the Utopians dream of, since perfection is not of this world, or of this life, and will never be encountered in either.

Social Democracy defines an attempt to force-fit Marxist ideas into a Democracy. Social Democracy, neither fish nor foul, seeks, by devious means, by the gradual rather than revolutionary path, the ultimate victory of Communism, or, Communist Utopia.
