    Municipal reformers are those who want to improve life in cities. These improvements may include housing, transportation and removal of corrupted city officials. They may be either socialists of progressives.

    Progressives and socialists are not the same. Progressives want a better life for the people, whether it comes from cleaning up the government or government involvement. Socialists want the government to control most services.

    Capitalism endorses free enterprise and private business. Socialism endorses government ownership of vital resources and services.
