Doc, a point that a lot of Anglo critics of Marx miss repeatedly was that he did not necessarily advocate that any of these things and others ought to be done.

Marx's approach was that of a latter-day prophet forecasting that "this is inevitably bound to come about". (...and really, you and I have no control over the whether or not it happens.)

Had Marx lived in our day he might even have been defined as a "futurologist".
