Redistribution of income isn't the only definition of course. Statism and Centralization of power is certainly another definition.
You always suggest that worker ownership is the true definition, yet no socialist country has ever operated without centralization of power. Lenin and Marx as much admitted that to enforce the system, there had to be an elite rulership, so basically it is bs when you pretend otherwise.
In the anarchist, Marxist and socialist sense, free association (also called free association of producers or, as Marx often called it, community of freely associated individuals) is a kind of relation between individuals where there is no state, social class or authority, in a society that has abolished the private property of means of production. Once private property is abolished, individuals are no longer deprived of access to means of production so they can freely associate themselves (without social constraint) to produce and reproduce their own conditions of existence and fulfill their needs and desires....
