 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Socialism
But, in order to understand fully what Socialism is and what it implies, it is necessary first to glance at the history of the movement, then to examine its philosophical and religious tendencies, and finally to consider how far these may be, and actually have proved to be, incompatible with Christian thought and life.
His movement towards perfection is by way of ascent; it is not easy; it requires continual exercise of the will, continual discipline, continual training -- it is a warfare and a pilgrimage, and in it are two elements, the spiritual and the material, which are one in the unity of his daily life.
Socialism, of itself and by itself, can do nothing to diminish or discipline the immediate and materialistic lust of men, because Socialism is itself the most exaggerated and universalized expression of this lust yet known to history.

 Alexander Buzgalin: Socialism: The Lesson of Crisis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Free associated social creativity is, thereby, the key category for understanding a new kind of history, its progress is the content of the socialist movement, the basis for overcoming the mutant forms of the latter.
The condition of the growth of the left-wing movement is, firstly, the "training" of its "social muscles" (that is of experience and the development of its ability to do something) and the growth of its mass base; secondly, the development of "social brains" (for understanding the laws of its operation and survival).
Secondly, socialism - the era, during the course of which the socialization of property relations, the formal liberation of labour (the overcoming of social and economic alienation of workers from the means of production), transition from exploitation to distribution upon labour and to democratically organized social self-protection will pass also non-linearly, through revolutions and evaluations.

 Russian Socialism ????? – World Socialist Movement
This article is intended not to rehash those arguments, but to show that the Bolsheviks never expected to set up socialism in 1917, that from the outset their supposed "workers' state" intentionally directed its oppression against the workers, and was actually state capitalism.
Socialism can only be established when the material conditions of society, including productive capability and working class understanding, exist in society.
Socialism will be established by the working class, democratically, because that is the only possible way to establish a cooperative democratic society.

 Movement for Socialism (Venezuela) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

MAS was founded in 1971 by a faction of the Communist Party of Venezuela that opposed the Communist Party's use of armed tactics.
In the 1970s to the 1990s, members of MAS hoped that the party would become the third largest political force, challenging the dominant Social Christian and Democratic Action parties.

 National Socialism - MSN Encarta
The movement culminated in the establishment of the Third Reich, the totalitarian German state led by the dictator Adolf Hitler from 1933 to 1945.
To the German financier Hjalmar Schacht fell the task of formulating and carrying out much economic and banking policy, and the German architect and party leader Albert Speer was a major figure in overseeing the economy just before the end of World War II (1939-1945).
The immediate origins of National Socialism are to be found in the consequences of the German defeat in World War I (1914-1918).

 The Labor Movement and Socialism by Anton Pannekoek   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The object of the labor movement is to increase the strength of the proletariat to the point at which it can conquer the organized force of the bourgeoisie and thus establish its own supremacy.
The relation between political party and union is often represented as though the political movement were to bring about the destruction of capitalism, and the union to effect the improvement of the laborer’s condition within the capitalist system; as though the political party were naturally revolutionary and the union naturally reformatory.
The actual fight turns about definite legislative proposals; about social reforms, laws for the protection of laborers, contraction or expansion of the rights of labor, laws in the interest of particular capitalist groups, or measures of taxation in regard to which there is a collision of class interests.

 Socialism and the State
Economics was for him the real basis of all social life; and since with deep insight he recognised the sensitivity of economics to every external compulsion, he logically associated the abolition of economic monopolies with the banishment of all that is governmental from the life of society.
Either such attempts were at the very beginning thwarted by the youthful vigour of social reconstruction or the tender sprouts and hopeful beginnings of the new forms were so confined and hindered in their natural growth by the old that they gradually declined and their inner lifeforce slowly died out.
Socialism inspired by liberal ideas, however, leads in a straight line to anarchism, meaning by that, a social condition where man is no longer subject to the guardianship of a higher power and where all relations between him and his kind are self-regulated by mutual agreement.

 Draper: The Two Souls of Socialism
Modern socialism was born in the course of the half century or so that lies between the Great French Revolution and the revolutions of 1848.
Socialism must involve planning, but "total planning" does not equal socialism just as any fool can be a professor but not every professor need be a fool.
But the recurrence of revolutionary upheavals and social disturbances, defined precisely by the intrusion onto the historical stage of previous inactive masses and characteristic of periods when basic social change is on the agenda, is just as "normal" in history as the intervening periods of conservatism.

Against this global class system the only social movement holding the banner of liberation of mankind and fighting for the eradication of all human sufferings is worker-socialism.
The clear perspective and the ideological and political coherence which this movement enjoys, together with the large rank of worker and communist activists and cadres who have come forward at this stage, have more than ever created the possibility of forming a Marxist working-class party with a powerful social base.
Following the efforts of communists, and activists and leaders of the workers' movement in Iraq to build the worker-communist party of Iraq, a large number of activists of the worker-socialist movement in Iraq have assigned us to form this party and to lead it until its first congress.

 PINR - Bolivia's Evo Morales Launches His Movement Toward Socialism into the Political Trenches
Referred to as populism by most commentators, the ideology is more precisely communitarian socialism, in which local cooperativist forms of organization are nurtured by the state, which exercises regulatory control and joint ownership over strategic, extractive industries and public utilities, yet allows a private sector to function, often with considerable freedom.
As the first leader of a grassroots indigenous movement to assume power in an Andean state and committed to a comprehensive program of social change geared to the longstanding aspirations of his base, Evo Morales is compelled to show results on pain of seeing his support drain away and Bolivia descend into civil conflict.
The first initiatives have been taken in the struggle to change Bolivia's balance of power and the terms of its social contract; now the trench warfare of intense bargaining on all fronts begins, with results that are presently uncertain.

 Bolivian elections - What position should the Marxists take?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The main tragedy of the revolutionary movement earlier this year was, once again, that when the crucial movement was reached, the leaders of the workers’ and peasants’ movement did not know what to do.
The lack of a clear way forward, the tiredness of the movement after three weeks of red-hot revolutionary mobilisation, and the authority of certain MAS leaders, finally carried the day and the general strike died down.
This was clearly seen during the May-June movement, when the rank and file of the MAS, the peasants who had marched to La Paz, rejected his demand for 50% royalties and under the influence of the powerful strike movement adopted firmly the demand for nationalisation.

 Workers World June 6, 2002: WWP summer classes on socialism
The movement for socialism goes back to the early days of industrial capitalism in Europe, when fierce class struggles began to break out because of the glaring contradiction between the tremendous productive potential unleashed by capitalism and the growing misery of the working class.
The socialist movement grew into a powerful force in Europe in the 19th century, and was able to win some improvements for the workers.
Imperialist wars, the degradation of the environment, racism and national oppression, sexism, the oppression of lesbian, gay, bi and transgender people--all these problems added on to the exploitation of the workers are generating social movements looking for answers that can't be found in capitalism.

Harry and Paul—but especially Harry—were occasionally criticized by some on the left for a seeming contradiction between their advocacy of socialism and their support for what were thought to be reformist measures like single-payer universal health insurance, something that MR has supported for at least a quarter century.
