Default Socialism

It's often talked about as an alternative to Capitalism, I mean it sounds nice, it's 'social' and obviously not good for 'capitalist pigs' but what does it mean in 21st century Britain? What means of production would the state redistribute, does it just lead to a dictatorship of the proletariat?

Does Labour have to offer something radical along these lines or will Corbyn simply keep repeating platitudes about fairness?
