Communism and democratic socialism won’t heal today’s political divisions. But social democracy—which helped ward off extremism following World War II—could.

Thank you for sharing this. It turns out it answers some questions I have had recently about the differences and histories of the socialist ideologies.

may i ask what questions you had that were answered by this article?


Yeah, it’s kind of complicated. Or at least more complicated than one would assume

Social Democracy

    Everything regarding social democracy as a political movement.

    As described on wikipedia:

    “Social democracy is a political, social and economic philosophy within socialism. As a policy regime, it is described by academics as advocating economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a liberal-democratic polity and a capitalist-oriented mixed economy.”

    Social democracy is often confused with democratic socialism which is it’s own thing.

    To make this a usefull and a positive environment we ask you:

    • to post related social democracy and politics

    • to be respectful, honest and argue in good faith

    While being a open minded group we don’t allow these following transgressions:

    • partaking in harassment, bigotry, hate-speech, Racism or other types of toxic behaviour.
