Equality and solidarity
Socialism is a political doctrine that emphasizes equality and solidarity for all people. Some of his basic ideas were already described in the 18th century, at the time of the Enlightenment. But it was not until the 19th century, when there was increasing poverty and misery among the workers with industrialization, that socialism developed into a mass movement. Various ideas were now combined into a political doctrine that soon split into two currents.
At the end of the 19th century the workers and the trade unions represented democratic socialism. Gradual changes should improve the economic and social conditions and thus people's living conditions. Nobody should exercise power over other people if they were not democratically elected. The Social Democratic Party of Germany, the SPD, emerged from this movement.
Revolutionary socialism, on the other hand, strove for a violent overthrow and a radical new beginning in the economy and society. He saw himself as a transition to communism. After the Russian October Revolution in 1917, "real existing socialism" emerged in the Soviet Union. The socialist system was also introduced in other countries. Almost everywhere, socialism led to a tyranny in which many people were oppressed. Around 1990 many socialist societies collapsed.
Socialist parties today
There are still socialist and social democratic parties in the democratic states of Western Europe. You want to realize ideas of socialism on the basis of democracy.
