The difference between Socialism and Communism

Based on emails I receive on shows we do on the economy, there are some who are not clear on the concept of the difference between Socialism and Communism, and in some cases, the difference between Socialism and Capitalism.

With surveys showing that a growing number of people today believe that Capitalism is failing and that Socialism is a good alternative, including the majority of Gen Z, we need to all engage in this conversation...with the facts:

Investopedia goes into detail on the subject, but in a nutshell, Socialism, the cousin of Communism, refers to an economic system, which seeks to control the market for "the redistribution of wealth." While communism refers to both an economic and a political system, which seeks to manage both the economy and the society by controlling the distribution of property and more in order to "achieve both classlessness and statelessness". Socialism seeks to manage the economy through "deliberate and collective social control." Communism on the other hand, seeks to manage both the economy and the society by controlling the working person, (their slogan: "Workers of the world unite!"), who is paid "according to their abilities and needs." In other words, as determined by the government. Private property is not valued. Both socialism and communism are anti-capitalism.

In my interviews with Jay Richards on his book, "Money, Greed & God" we learned that Capitalism Is an economic system based on the free exchange of goods and services without fraud, theft and breech of contract; it is a free market economy.

In their Communist Manifesto Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels outlined the goals of Marxism, which is a vision of "a future society free from class antagonism, which will purportedly be brought about by the establishment of communism and the demise of oppressive capitalism." Thus the end goal of Marxism is a future one-world communist, capitalistic-free Utopian state.

This is not the first time a country rethinks it's economic policies when dealing with a huge financial crisis. It is also not the first time that Marxist/Socialist advocates are extolling their view and criticizing capitalism, using their main argument -- "FAIRNESS." But is Marxism fair? No it is not.

Feedback from our Guests & Listeners

"Sharon, you are one of America's heroines. If we had a thousand like you across the country, we would be in a much better position. We cherish your friendship." -The late Rabbi Ayreh Spero, Caucus for America (Remembering his life and friendship).

"Sharon, I remember when I first heard a broadcast of your radio show, I was walking around Lake Merced trying to lower my blood pressure enough to satisfy my cardiologist, and while spinning the dial on my radio, I came across, Sharon Hughes and Changing Worldviews. Was I totally captivated by the hostess and the subject matter? Yes! I continued walking and listening, but the reception on my radio kept dropping in and out, so it soon became clear to me I was going to have to make a choice, continue walking and lose this great show, or stop this walk and sit where the reception is great and finish the show............and I have been finishing the shows ever since." -Greg from San Francisco
