On global scale "all" parties are "socialists" in Scandinavia...
Another one liner with no connection whatsoever to the actual topic: your definition of socialism is taken from McCarthy's propaganda dictionary, so don't take it personnaly, but nobody cares in Europe.

This may be so or not, but is of minor relevance to the Social network in Switzerland and the development of Social Democracy in Switzerland. The influence coming from the SPD and the PS(F) and of course from the Leftists in Italy for a Century was far more important.

Amazing is that the "Bad Godesberger Programm" of the SPD was only to some parts taken over by the SPS, so that the Swiss Social Democrats, if compared with German parties, are halfway between the SPD and the "Linke" of Oscar Lafontaine, even if being slightly to the right of the French Socialists.

The SPS clearly is to the left of the PD (Partito Democratico) in Italy which came out of the merger of the Left wing of the Democrazia Cristiana and the former PCI (Partito Communista Italiano). A bit amazing to whomever saw the PCI in the Emilia Romagna and the Toscana in the 1960ies, I admit, but true

DSK indeed IS a member of the Socialist Party, but is NOT a "Socialist" by his opinions, as his opinions are rather Giscardist. It is interesting that he in spite of this, until his "problem" was frontrunner on the Socialist side for the candidacy of President. He in the final would have got millions of votes from people right of centre.
