1. I am wondering if somebody can enlighten me on what entails a position
such as "libertarian socialist". Does the libertarian bit come in because
of the tendency to resist "authority" in the quest for absolute individual
freedom?

2. What is the difference between Marxism and Socialism? The recent
biography on Karl Marx by Francis Wheen says there are up to 57 variations
of Marxism. Isn't socialism one of them? How?

I would appreciate any references, but tempered with your individual insights.
