To those born after the fall of the Berlin Wall, socialism is more “digital” than “real”. Meaning that, on the one hand, they perceive it on the model of Scandinavian social democracy, and on the other, as a universal service dispenser which favors – but doesn’t force – people to connect by enabling them to pursue personal goals while taking upon itself the implied costs.
