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.

More generally, a solid grasp of means and ends is the first step toward thrashing out a cogent agenda in any domain.
