Socialism isn't Communism, for all you Conservatives out there. Most Communist countries take all the money for themselves, while Liberal Socialist countries don not.

Lol no. Please, read stuff before telling something. Russia is mostly capitalist. China is rather mixed. North Korea is state capitalist. Communism is referred as moneyless stateless society where from everyone is taken according to his abilities and to everyone is given according to their needs. Supposed to be achieved worldwide.

It will be a naive question but... What is precisely anarchism ?
I must say that I don't know a lot about this. Except what I read in a Philip K Dick novel, where US citizens finally rejected all forms of governments because they where tired to live under the threat of a nuclear war they couldn't decide anything about (only the government can choose to launch nuclear missiles), and finally lived under their own rules (and I deduced this could be a version of anarchism but I may be wrong).

It has the name, but it's not. The idea of socialism defended by Lenine is veryyyy far from the auto-claimed "socialist" governement and policies we actually have.

Or to most reformists who call themselves socialist, for that matter (or is that basically "European style socialism"?). A very useful image in everyday life.

Well - usually don't understand the difference between socialism and left-wing, as well as don't see difference between socialism and stalinism and leninism.

Take this example for instance: most people say the more power have one person the less freedom there is, and the more power have people, the more freedom there is.
That is not true - people can enslave themselves, while the absolute monarch might not interfere with peoples freedom...

the problem is there is only one well known success of socialism by name in history: the Nationalist, Socialist, German, Workers, Party! people use this as their example from my experience, i mean sadly that is the one thing people keep saying "socialism is what the nazis used, look at them!" and I have to sigh, that is the only way people would know, so I can't really provide proof without sounding like a fanatic, which disproves everything I could say.

yeah but no one ever thinks of that one off the bat, (not that they shouldn't) but think about it, it's like how people say "Ben Franklin discovered Electricity!" or "Henry Ford made the automobile!" Neither are true, but they are the first and foremost ones that come to mind, and sadly not in our time (if the past is an indicator) will this factor change. and i sound like a ranting Lunatic right now, trying to provide a point as to why I should't have to sound like one! I mean it's just like a vicious cycle. which is a shame as socialism can work off paper (unlike communism) and provide as promised with corrections made time to time to prevent the beginning laws from fading in meaning, much better than Communism or capitalism ( in respects to their own successes and shortcomings) and not to mention the only socialist parties in The United states are either A: associated with the fascists of Germany's past, or B: not at all powerful or willing to step into the lime light a bit, just kind of sitting it out on the sideline.

you have no idea how many people misuse the term socialism without even pointing out the good and bad of it and just says they hate it, and also i found a picture that says something about " european style socialism" even though most of European is mostly capitalist, especially france.

Socialism has a very broad meaning, encapsulating everything from far-left (communism) to center-left (social-democracy, what you call "fake" European style socialism), just as conservatism encompasses everything from fascism to moderate center-right politics. Deal with it. The word "communism" exists and has a more precise definition that fits your unilateral vision of socialism so use this word instead. It exists for a reason. Let "socialism" exist in all its richness and -yes- contradictions.

I'm from the UK and we have socialised healthcare. I understand that there is a lot of propaganda against this in the American media. Is that right? I don't understand why anyone would want anything else. 

The NHS has its problems, but these are not due to its being socialised. They are other factors (often stemming from capitalist sources). We have private healthcare if people wish to use it, but most people don't. 

If people from the UK talk online to people from the US and mention their support for a socialist healthcare system, they often get called "communist". It's quite surreal. America has socialised schooling, police service, fire service, libraries etc. Do they not recognise this? I get asked "Why should my taxes go to pay for someone else's healthcare?" … my answer is "Because the privileged looking after those in the most need is fundamental to a civilised society". Imagine if children born into poor families didn't call the fire service to rescue their baby sister from their burning house because they couldn't afford the fees or couldn't afford to call the police when they were being attacked. It's ridiculous.

i actually saw that in the news a few years ago www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwJrPa… here it is , i can see the bad side of capitalism but there is more good than bad but i think both sides do equally stupid things. now i might not agree with the socialist idea but i think the partys that back it have a good reason to like the capitalists or socialism because of the actions of a few that  they like but both sides can be  ass holes like in that link i sent you.  you just have to decide on the devil you know to follow one of those groups
