Who is the creator of socialism as an idea?

People refer to Karl Marx, but he only popularized the idea. On Revolution French had many ideas that were socialist to describe the nature … this is long before the influence of Marx. Notable Jean-Jacques Rousseau spoke of socialist theory … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_revolution http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Jacques_Rousseau So I wonder who created the first philosophical basis of equality the left thinking, for example, wealth, etc?

Greeks and Romans did it first.
