1) Anarchism is a political ideology followed by anarchist
s. Although many people belive anarchism to be a type of communism
, anarchists actually regard communism as state perpetrated captialism

and moderate Liberal Capitalism, Anarchists
also ocassionaly refer to themselves as liberal socialists).
Modern socialist ideas are normally based on re-distribution of wealth by means of a progressive taxation system. For example providing a minimum wage for workers and health benfits in times of sickness.
Although socialism has traditionally been associated with public ownership, many Socialist governments (such as the British Labour Party under Tony Blair) now favour a system of "democratic capitalism" where the government and the market co-operate to provide basic services and living standards to the citizens of a country.

Socialism is also associated with unionisation
