As I read the definition below, socialism doesn't ban or advocate the banning of private property. Of course, you use the word as a red baiting technique and don't care what it means in reality: just another way to try to discredit anyone who dares oppose your Neanderthal views of education. I'd be surprised if you weren't a close relative or friend of the late Roy M. Cohn and/or Joseph McCarthy, (R-Wisc). Why worry about truth when you can traffic in truthiness?

socialism |?s? sh ??liz?m| |?so????l?z?m| |?s????l?z (?)m| noun a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. ? policy or practice based on this theory. ? (in Marxist theory) a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism. The term ?socialism? has been used to describe positions as far apart as anarchism, Soviet state communism, and social democracy; however, it necessarily implies an opposition to the untrammeled workings of the economic market.The socialist parties that have arisen in most European countries from the late 19th century have generally tended toward social democracy.
