what in usaand in Western Europe united socialists of different types for many years was the search for an alternative model, both to Soviet-type socialism and to capitalism. In the idea of "socialist democracy" was present the drive for a series of "strong reforms" (as the Italian communists put it) or "structural reforms" (as Ralph Miliband called them). The left mobile phone number list social democrats were attracted by this perspective, as they disputed, within their own parties, for more significant advances than those generated under their governments. Those leftist social democrats, who continued to claim the founding period although they did not limit themselves to it, mobile phone number list encouraged the development of "something more" than the Welfare State. Strictly speaking, they continued to believe in class contradiction, After the fall of the Soviet Union, for mobile phone number list the democratic socialists who were still fighting for "structural reformism" and who were part of the social democratic parties, the task became even more difficult.

For their part, left socialists who were outside the social democratic parties and belonged to other currents and traditions such as the New Left were also targeted and criticized.
