"Or, rather more appropriately, is nearly every modern politician (and many a pundit) a socialist? The answer is no, if by 'socialist' is meant someone who advocates government ownership of the means of production. But suppose that 'socialist' instead refers to someone who advocates something akin to the actual type of property law that existed in 20th-century socialist regimes such as the U.S.S.R. What then?"
