This paper is about the most seductive political theory of all times: The Socialism. During its almost 250 years journey throughout the timeline of world history, it embraced different forms, names or agents, so that it became a very confused way of thinking sociopolitics. Just as we research the working arrangements of Socialism (the socialist political ideas, the ways of implementation of them or, even, the criminal compulsions of it), so we must analyze the consequential effects of socialism in post communist Romania.
