    Default what's throw in?

    "Socialism is thrown in at the end, probably as an afterthought, and is defined as "mutual service"! Not a word about the working class taking over the ownership of the factories, land and wealth of the country."

    Does it mean that socialism was rid of?

    NOT A TEACHER.

    Without further context, I would interpret it as meaning "added."

    I agree, and with the additional connotation of "at the last minute, on a whim".

    It remained being a socialist country? I would have liked to have further context as well. We were given just sentences for translation.

    Without further context, it could mean many things.
    Doesn't have to be about a country.
