    Socialism is opposed to capitalism.

    Socialism is a more equitable way of distributing wealth among the population. The fundamental ideas of this doctrine would be respect for workers' rights, justice and social equality.

    In a socialist political regime, the State owns factories, large agricultural areas, means of communication and telecommunications. We can then say that the State owns the means of production.  

    Hope that answers your question!
