Socialism = Statism

From Re: Is the Vatican a State?:

There can be no socialism without a state, and as long as there is a state there is socialism. The state, then, is the very institution that puts socialism into action; and as socialism rests on aggressive violence directed against innocent victims, aggressive violence is the nature of any state.
–Hans-Hermann Hoppe, A Theory of Socialism and Capitalism, pp. 148-49; emphasis added
