I think it is a difficult issue which Draper attempts to address:

"The larger subject behind it is “The State and Democracy” in Marx’s writings. But study of this subject is shadowed by the belief that Marx advocated a “dictatorship.” This is reinforced by the two types of exegetes who today carry on the cold war over the corpus of Marxism: the bourgeois ideologues who think they must prove Marx an authoritarian in order to defeat Moscow; and the Soviet schoolmen whose assignment it is to wrap Stalinism in quotations from Marx, Both these camps are anxious to prove the same thing. In fact, Marxian exegeses, once the property of a few socialist scholars, bids fair to become a minor world industry,

The larger issue, then, is the image of Marx for the modern world."

"Communism = totalitarianism" is how Glen Beck would have it. User:Fred Bauder Talk 19:56, 16 October 2011 (MSK)
