  1. State socialism

    State socialism has various meanings, but is generally described as an economic system with a limited number of socialist characteristics, including public ownership of major industries, remedial measures to benefit the working class, and a gradual process of developing socialism through government policy. Alternatively, it is used to classify any variety of socialist philosophies and ideologies that calls for ownership of the means of production by the state apparatus, either as a transitional stage between capitalism and socialism, or as an end-goal in itself. State socialism is generally held in contrast with libertarian socialism and socialist anarchism, which reject the view that socialism can be achieved by using the existing state apparatus or by government policy. In India, Tipu Sultan's government is considered, having characteristics of "State Socialism". The philosophy of state socialism was first expounded by Ferdinand Lassalle. In contrast to Karl Marx and his adherents, Lassalle rejected the idea that the state was a class-based power structure with the function of preserving existing class relations and destined to "wither away" in a future classless society. Instead, Lassalle considered the state as an independent entity, an instrument of justice essential for the achievement of the socialism.
