No, unthinking majority. There are different forms of capitalism and there are different forms of basic socialism.
I like Richard Wolff's explanation.
Okay, just saw the video. Here's how I would *expand* on Wolff's categories:
1. Wolff's 'government regulation' = government spending on social services / progressive tax structure
2. Wolff's 'Communism' = nationalization / Stalinism / bureaucratic-elite / professional state administrators [EDIT: not 'professional ruling-class state administrators]
3. Wolff's 'enterprise / workplace focus' = workplace democracy / workers co-ops / anarchism / syndicalism / communalism
I myself would add a *fourth* 'socialism', that of outright collective workers-of-the-world control of worldwide social production, without nation-states even being *necessary*, or retained, in the slightest. Each active liberated-worker, on a strictly *voluntary* / uncoerced basis, would decide how many hours to devote to production of goods and services for the common good, with *zero* correlation of that labor to what they *receive* from society. This means people could conceivably not-work *at all* and still take as much as they could personally physically consume 24/7/365.
In reality I think most people would jump in and organize with others, and would collectively determine what goods and services should be *prioritized* for production, for the common social good, and would work a reasonable amount to effect such plans. I'll remind the reader that, under capitalism, production is increasingly *industrialized* and even *automated*, so that less and less actual human labor is required, per unit of output, to consumers.
Components of Social Production
A post-capitalist collectivist society would have a *collective interest* in *fully automating* as much production as possible, meaning potentially *everything* so that everyone could fully *benefit* from any and all technologies in existence (developed by capitalism), while ultimately not necessarily *having* to contribute any labor power since everything would then be fully automated, and would no longer physically *require* any work effort from anyone.
All active liberated-laborers would effectively be collective *co-administrators* over their own, and any *related*, production efforts. which could always be *generalized* 'up' into any greater scale that's appropriate, on a *per-item* basis (water, any particular fruit, any particular vegetable, etc.). This would yield economies-of-scale, instead of being stuck with a sheerly *localist* / subsistence farming / self-sufficiency scale of *communally-constrained* internally-collectivist production.
