Phil, sorry about the one liners but:

"The problem with this is that it doesn't really leave anything 'socialist'
in bourgeois socialism.  It's just bourgeois bourgeois-ism."

Socialism sui genus is simply the opposite form of property to private property - that
is property that has been socialisied (at least the leading parts of it). The class
character of the rulers determines the specific attributes and the stage of struggle -
Bourgeois Socialism would therefore be the ultimate 'bourgeois bourgeois-ism'.
