Louis (P) has some good ideas for a prospectus for moderated Marxism,  and
goes on to conclude:

Amen,  Louis.    I would further urge those who enter the moderated list to
do so,  not as "believers" in a particular line,  sect,  party,  or
"leader",  but as part of a great movement embracing people of many
beliefs--both Marxist and non-Marxist--whose great goal is the emancipation
of humanity from the throes of exploitation and injustice in all its complex
and nefarious forms.
