    Socialism is not equivalent to Marxism.  Or to be more precise, Marxism was a subset of Socialism in the 19th century.  There were other versions of socialism put forth in the 19th Century.

    Democratic Socialism is more akin to the current practices of most Western Democracies than it is to the practices of the U.S.S.R. or China or North Korea.

    Even Capitalism is. America has Social Security and Medicare, what do you think that is. Bernie wants a better Democratic system where we can have European style Democracy. We are heading in that direction and there is no stopping us now.

    yes, all forms of socialism are related to marxism.  As Lenin plainly observed, it requires government force to institute and protect marxism.

    Taking your money even low-income and giving it to the government in the hopes you die before retirement that way they can keep it all.

    Socialism is Marxism. At least in these times it is. Sanders wants government to make rich people equal to the rest of us. But he's rich too. So, socialism is the brass ring for politicians. There are always rich politicians in socialist countries.
