Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The collapse of socialism as a credible intellectual alternative to capitalism, especially in western countries (and I would count myself in this category - if I had lived 30 or 40 years ago, I would have probably been a socialist. Today, I think socialism can't work.)

Some political ideas like Social democracy has its roots in socialist ideologies and is working just fine in most of the Scandinavian countries today.  What most people think is that socialism is a static ideology, but that is by no means true.  Socialism, that is democratic socialism, is changing as society progress.   Social democracy is no exception and as a set of political ideas it is extremely adaptable to changes in society, too adaptable according to some.
