Did they claim that national success was dependent on “democracy,” “free enterprise,” “free elections,” and “freedom?” Absolutely not. The system establish conditions for the worker to sell his/her labour, thereby entering into a wage-capital relationship The worker was alienated in this relationship because s/he did not own the means of production and because s/he was exploited S/he was exploited because the owner of capital wanted to maximize profit or the share of the surplus created by giving the worker as little of it as possible The capitalist seeks to maximize the surplus value from the production process He advocated the overthrow of the system and replacing it with communism What makes his work so relevant is the fact that today is that Capitalism is unchallenged as the system by which economic production is organized, perhaps the world over. • Initially socialism called for the creation of a classless society - a form of utopia • But in its broader application, it involves a set of ideas and a program aimed at creating a socially just society in which power is not concentrated in the hands of a few but exercized in the best interest of the majority. • It also calls for the emancipation of oppressed peoples everywhere including workers, colonized peoples, Aboriginal peoples, women, racialized peoples, disable peoples, youth, etc. • Socialism has variations: – Utopian socialism – Scientific socialism – Social Democracy • Social democracy was the variant of socialism that became most influential in the West. • Many countries were attracted to the idea of a mixed economy - an economy where the state intervenes to level the playing field but allows the market to play its distributive function • In the aftermath of the great depression, Canadian socialists embraced social democracy and formed the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation - a coalition of rural farmers and urban workers which would later become the New Democratic Party • Social democratic government have rules most of the European countries for much of the last 100 years. • • • • A cross between scientific socialism and social anarchism, in theory, its advocates predicted the withering away of the state after the fall of capitalism and the matriculation of socialism It called for the establishment of an utopian classless society with high levels of cultural, political, social and economic liberty It would involve public ownership of the means of production to ensure social equality - Inspired by Marx’s pronounced ‘From each according to their abilities and to each according to their needs’ In practice, as was the case in the Soviet Union (now Russia) or China, Cuba, Albania, Rumania, East Germany, it represented centralized planning and the absence of the market as a mechanism for resource distribution Many of these regimes, in the name of absolute social equality became totalitarian and highly oppressive, stifling individual liberty • Identified with such thinkers as Emma Goldman (1869-1940), Pierre Joseph Proudhon (1809-1865) it represented a critique of socialism’s overcentralizing tendencies and inability to ensure individual freedom • Anarchism rejects hierarchical forms of governance and seeks to liberates ‘man’ from the phantom of economic and political power • Advocated as the philosophy of a new social order based on liberty unrestricted by ‘man-made’ laws.
