Do you consider that the working class is exploited? If so, then briefly explain how this takes place

What do you understand by the word ‘socialism’?

Why do socialists say that there will be no trade or money in a socialist society? On what basis will wealth be distributed?

Has socialism been established in any part of the world?

Why do socialists say that socialism cannot exist in one country alone?

Why do socialists maintain that democratic methods such as parliamentary elections, must be used to capture political power for the achievement of socialism?

Why do socialists not take sides or willingly take part in wars?

What is your attitude to other political parties? Do any of them stand for  socialism?

Why does the Socialist Party not campaign for reforms?
