Asked in Socialism
Where did the idea of socialism come from?
Early Socialist writers and thinkers had many opinions on how to solve the problems of industrial society. But most of them agreed that the answer to social problems was to change public opinion. If Socialists could make only the majority of people see how unfair capitalism was, then those people would demand change. This is why many Socialists created model communities. They hoped to provide a moral example to the rest of society. Not all Socialists agreed with this approach, however. In the 1840s, a key political thinker named Karl Marx argued for a new form of Socialism. Marx called his beliefs Scientific Socialism. He based his arguments on economics rather than social reform. Marx was not interested in convincing the people in power to act more fairly. Instead, Marx and Friedrich Engels, argued in their Communist Manifesto that change would come through revolution. They further claimed nothing could stop that revolution from happening. The Communist Manifesto, published in 1848, had a huge impact on political thought in Europe and around the world.

Asked in History of Russia, Socialism
Why does this country have socialists?
It depends entirey on which country "this country" is. However, most countries have socialists because socialism defends the rights of the workers and the underprivileged against larger corporations and more conservative ideologues. In this way, it gives a voice and a power to those who otherwise would have no mechanism to fight for their rights. Socialists have largely been responsible for the establishment of labor standards, the creation and designation of national treasures, improving healthcare and access to medicine, and shifting the tax burden from a regressive tax on individuals to a progressive tax that targets corporations. In the United States, however, it should be noted that conservatives tend to use the term "socialist" to tar opinions with which they disagree regardless of whether they actually are based on fundamental socialist policies to begin with. That is not to say that the US has no socialists, Bernie Sanders of Vermont is typically considered one, but Barack Obama, for example, is not a socialist, but a center-line Democrat.
