Modern Socialism is a Forced Socialization

My article “The Education of the Modern Socialist” deserves a follow up. That first part showed that a change has occurred in the definition of "socialism"; a necessary one in view of the failures of this ideology during the last century. Socialism today is based on the ideology of "Statism" that is, the conviction that the State must play a fundamental role in society. This is Ludwig von Mises’ wider definition of Socialism as State intervention; a modern social State that is involved in most if not all the activities of society, whether commercial or not.
