    Champagne Socialism (ChamSoc) is a leftist ideology, based around the belief that the hallmarks of middle-class affluence, and happily living in a Capitalist society are no barrier to representing Marxist spirit.

    Champagne Socialism seeks to change the interpretation of staple Marxist terms. Where Marx said "to each according to need", ChamSoc believes each person should be able to determine their own needs, and traditionally un-socialist ideas, such as owning their own home could be a basic need for some.

    ChamSoc also believes that the social classes to have shifted since Marx's era, with the middle-classes now as oppressed as the working classes and the empoverished. Champagne Socialism instead focuses on heavy taxation of billionaires (often appropriating the term 'bourgeoisie' to describe CEOs of global corporations), raising funds through initiatives such as abolishing the monarchy, or defunding the police, all with the end goal of providing middle-class luxuries for everyone.

    ChamSoc doesn't oppose wage labour, like most Marx-inspired ideologies, though does believe working conditions in western society to be unacceptable. To remedy this, ChamSoc seeks to utilise advancements in technology to make working life extremely easy, creating more opportunities to work from home, and for much shorter hours per week.

    Champagne Socialism places tremendous emphasis on cultivating more intellectuals, and the importance of as many people studying to degree level as at all possible. Whilst this inevitably leads to a surplus of graduates who can't find jobs that utilise their knowledge, ChamSoc believes the more abstract personal benefits of attending university in itself to entirely outweight this.
