No i'm not 5 ik all the 'proper noun' stuff etc however what i mean is, say for instance you have the SPD (social democratic party of Germany/Deutschland) would the non shortened version have capital letters in? but what about if you had just 'socialism' on its own? would that have a capital letter?sorry if this seems picky but the examiners pick up on it and i don't want to lose marks

The general rule is that if it the name of something specific then you give it capital letters. So in your example it's a specific social democratic party called the Social Democratic Party.
