noun \ ˈsō-shə-ˌli-zəm \
Definition of socialism
A political system that takes democracy to its natural and extreme level, when public interests are considered immeasurably more important than the interests of individuals. History shows that any implementation of socialism leads to the corruption and uncontrollable power of the bureaucratic elite. The transition to socialism happens on the wave of memetic collectivization when Knowmen force everyone (Masters and Ludens) to submit to the will of the majority by law.
Socialism is the defective political system. It is produced by people who are willing to give up their rights in exchange for stability and security by giving more and more power to the government. The only ones who benefit from it are corrupt politicians who use their political power for personal gain. To seize and keep this power, the politicians use every opportunity to agitate Knowmen by spreading infeasible, but populist ideas of common welfare and equality. The father of the Russian socialist revolution called such people useful idiots.
Socialism is a cancer of human society. It is the most dangerous memetic disease, which gives the Knowmen rights to oppress the Masters and Ludens legally. It is a common misconception that socialism requires the state to nationalize the means of production and to eliminate private property. Not necessarily. Socialism is a political system that can use various economic options. As long as the government can control the economic relationships between people, it uses this power to redistribute resources. It is this feature of socialism that restrains progress and makes it so dangerous.
