Democratic Socialism refers to the theory of achieving socialism through electoral means, working within the confines of bourgeois liberal democracy.


Many Marxists argue that in a democratic socialist society, the bourgeoisie would still be the ruling class, and thus, have significant economic and political power, and will use that power to undermine the estabilishment of a socialist system, as they would not be willing to extingish their own class.
