Socialism followed core principles such as: 1. Belief in human nature: every human being is born genuinely good and it is the ?selfish competitive economic system of capitalism? (Jones, Kavanagh, Moran and Norton, 2005) that deforms this attribute. 2. Social equality: every man possesses equal rights and opportunities in life. 3.
