When does the Left Wing ever talk about Marxism? Does Dennis Kucinich talk
about a stateless social order? Even self described socialists like Bernie
Sanders or activists like Michael Moore don't say "we must get rid of money
and class!". All I have ever heard from progressives is "We should pay
teachers more and useless businessmen less." and "We should stop paying
private contractors so much to imprison more and more people on meaningless
drug charges". I have hung out with many anarchists, feminists, hippies,
and rabid left wing ideologues socially throughout my life and have never -
ever - heard anyone mention communism or Marxism in any kind of political
context at all. Most of what I know about Marxism has come from
Libertarians and Republicans holding up its ghost in effigy.
