I have a 10 mark (mock) question - Why do socialists traditionally favour nationalisation? - and I understand it but I don't see how I can write a 10 mark answer just for that? All I've got is something along the lines of common ownership.
Any help would be much appreciated!

Would it be useful to link it back to Marxist theory, and the idea of the 'dictatorship of the proletariat' - which was supposed to remain for a short time before the 'withering away of the state'?

Common ownership is along the right lines, but there's a bit more to it than that.

You just have to think about the key aspects of socialism like common ownership, equality of opportunity, collectivism etc. It's all about making a more equal and fair life for all in society.

Nationalisation takes the means of production out of private hands so that everyone jointly owns it. This brings the power to the proletariat so that the bourgeoisie can no longer exploit them.
