As Pigeon says, all of the categories above would agree with those goals. If you see them as an end in themselves, then you are probably closest to social democrat. If you see them as good short-term goals which also serve a tactical purpose towards more ambitious goals, then you may fall into the others.What kind of socialist am I if I inexorably demand universal healthcare, housing, food, and education being provided by the state for everyone?

To get you thinking, what are your views towards the idea of private property?
