    marxism: A philosophy in which, class struggle has been the main agency of historical change.

    facisim: A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator.

    socialism: Systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.

    These are the simple concepts that come to my mind, when I hear these words. I shall be able to know deeper meanings of these terms, in the coming days.

    A political satire famous in this regard
    Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor.
    Communism: You have two cows. You give them to the Government, and the Government then gives you some milk.
    Fascism: You have two cows. You give them to the Government, and the Government then sells you some milk.
    Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
    Nazism: You have two cows. The Government takes both and shoots you.
    New Dealism: You have two cows. The Government takes both, shoots one, buys milk from the other cow, then pours the milk down the drain

    PS: To know about them better go through individual Wikipedia pages. That will explain you in detail and with great examples.
    Hesitating to act because the whole vision might not be achieved, or because others do not yet share it, is an attitude that only hinders progress.
