That's only true if you use the definition "Socialism = Everything thats Un-American".
Socialism in its origin is primarily an economic system, and desires only one very specific freedom: the freedom of the working class of supression by the owners of the means of production. That's not the freedoms you rave about.
Free Trade is hardly a socialist goal, no matter how far-fetched the definition of socialism
Freedom to move freely - now that's funny. So is restricting that (like in the Sovient Union and former east bloc) "socialist"? Or making that mandatorily available to everyone?
Also, "single set of laws" is wrong at least technically, EU largely makes requirements for laws.
I guess the term you are looking for is centralism - and even that applies only with a large liste of exceptions and footnotes.
Finally, I'm still utterly confised how pedophilia fits into that.
