The World Socialist Movement (WSM) is an international organisation of socialist parties created in 1904 with the founding of the Socialist Party of Great Britain. The member parties share a common classical Marxist worldview and an adherence to socialism defined as a distinct economic system from capitalism. Therefore, the World Socialist parties are held in sharp contrast to Social democratic political parties and Leninist/Marxist-Leninist movements. In contrast to Social democratic parties, the World Socialist parties do not pursue reforms to capitalism, nor do they seek political office in electoral politics and focus on "progressive" causes, and in contrast to Leninist and Marxist-Leninist Communist parties, they do not engage in revolutionary activities and do not subscribe to the theory of Vanguardism and Democratic centralism, believing such practices and tactics to be antithetical to the realization of socialism.
