Socialism isn’t bad, forced socialism is. We often practice a form of socialism when we donate our time, money or join groups or associations. But, these are voluntary. Voluntary socialism is fine.

“One difference between libertarianism and socialism is that a socialist society can’t tolerate groups of people practicing freedom, but a libertarian society can comfortably allow people to choose voluntary socialism. If a group of people – even a very large group – wanted to purchase land and own it in common, they would be free to do so. The libertarian legal order would require only that no one be coerced into joining or giving up his property.” – David Boaz
