Because my position is distinctly ‘market socialist’ that differs from Social Democracy. I think that we can think on Market Socialism as an advanced form of Social Democracy.   Why don’t you call yourself Communist instead Socialist?   Regards,A.

What you try to defend dogmatically hast nothing to do with the concept of socialism. See Robert Owen's "Social System".
