Marxism som religion

Ten Great Economists: From Marx to Keynes framför Joseph Schumpeter uppfattningen att marxismen kan ses som en religion, med Karl Marx som den store profeten. En sak de har gemensamt (s. 5):

The religious quality of Marxism also explains a characteristic attitude of the orthodox Marxist toward opponents. To him, as to any believer in a Faith, the opponent is not merely in error but in sin. Dissent is disapproved of not only intellectually but also morally. There cannot be any excuse for it once the Message has been revealed.

Just så. De som vägrar tro ska straffas. I helvetet eller i Sibirien.
