(5.00 from 2 reviews)
An attempt to reclaim the word "socialism" from those that have re-defined it and rendered it taboo. Socialism does NOT mean a state-run economy or the end of private property, let alone Soviet-style tyranny. Socialism DOES mean economic democracy, worker-owned business, an economy for the 99%, and a humane alternative to capitalism. Capitalism is broken and it's time to discuss replacing it.
