I have come across the phrase “social democracy” a number of times lately. I assumed that I understood it, but just to check my own assumptions I looked it up this morning.
From the source:
“Social democracy, [a] political ideology that originally advocated a peaceful evolutionary transition of society from capitalism to socialism using established political processes.”
I stand corrected. I thought “social democracy” was an empty ostentation. After all, democracy itself is a social behavior. Now I know that social democracy is a revolutionary strategy.
