Define “Socialism”

By on

The Christian Science Monitor says the words socialism and capitalism were most commonly searched for this year, almost double from last year…

“They’re words that sort of encapsulate the zeitgeist. They’re words that are in the national conversation,” said [Merriam-Webster editor] PeterSokolowski from company headquarters in Springfield, Mass. “The thing about an election year is it generates a huge amount of very specific interest.”

Other words highlighted by politics include democracy, globalization, marriage, bigot – and yes – Joe Biden’s “malarkey.”

Comments & discussion

We welcome your opinions, but let’s keep it civil. Like many businesses, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. In our case, that means those who communicate by name-calling, racism, using words designed to hurt others or generally acting like an uninformed bully. Also, comments that include links to email addresses or commercial websites typically aren't posted. This isn't a place to advertise your business.
