16. Democratic socialism is much the same as social democracy.

I'm with Alexandria!!

Here's the difference between a 'socialist' and a 'Democratic socialist'
John Haltiwanger Jun 28, 2018

"Democratic socialists ... generally believe the government should help provide for people's most basic needs and help all people have an equal chance at achieving success.

Ocasio-Cortez's platform, for example, calls for Medicare for all, tuition-free college, and treats housing as a right.

Democratic socialists ... believe strongly in democracy and democratic principles. They are by no means proponents of authoritarian government systems many Americans associate socialism with.

The DSA supports reforms that would decrease the influence of money in politics, empower ordinary people in workplaces and the economy, and restructure gender and cultural relationships to be more equitable, according to its website.
