The Definition of Socialism


Socialism: It’s intellectual stuff. And morally courageous.

That’s why professional students, modern day Pharisees and those who measure the extent of their compassion (and the compassion of others) by how generous they are willing to be with other people’s money are among it’s main proponents.

Given the lofty intellectual and moral stature of socialists, explaining what socialism means to the great unwashed should be a cinch. Ahhh…. Not quite it seems.

This simple question addressed to supporters of United States socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders this week at the Iowa Convention proved lot harder to answer than one might presume.

What was the question again?
