I'm currently revising for a level politics and was wondering what three points i could make about this?

Also, how could I answer is Marxism dead?


Thanks for any help- much appreciated!

Marxism I don't know about. Seems like a poorly-defined buzzword to me.

On the other hand, the NHS is a socialist institution that saves and improves tens of thousands of lives a year.

Isn’t the NHS a liberal institution? William Beveridge was a liberal, the beveridge report was hijacked by the Labour Party. NHS is an extension of equality of opportunity, a modern liberal idea. Socialism is about dismantling capitalism and producing equality of outcome

I would say socialism is dead. We live in a neoliberal society. Corbyn has brought the Labour Party left of the spectrum again, but unless he gets in power the Labour Party will return to centre right politics and socialism will be absent from mainstream politics.

Socialists incoming......

Socialism is far from dead. In fact, it is undergoing a revival. It's just more promoted as "democratic" socialism.
