well.. the problem here is, I believe, that many people, me amongst them, would claim to be socialist while also supporting private property right.
So, if we are not socialist, what are we?

To detail the kind of thought those people share (only in vague and general term, it's not a philosophical argument here, just trying to get better naming):
belief in private property, belief in the rule of law, (fuzzy) belief that the state should protect the weak from the strong, belief that taxation is acceptable (nay necessary), belief that taxation is not just for police force and military but also for public service, belief that the list of public service should be stretched as much as affordable including (but not necessarily limited to), roads - public health - education - welfare

so what are those named?
