A. James Gregor, author of the book to which above link is directed,
argues in _Fascist Perusasion in Radical Politics_ (its publication in
the early 1970s is, in itself, important considering some of the
politics of the time) that many movements considering themselves
Marxist are better understood as fascist. He maintains that Marx would
find little in the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, etc. that he would
consider Marxist (don't recall if Gregor refers to comment atttibuted
to Marx that some periodically trout out that he wasn't a Marxist).
Gregor claims that symbolism of Marx's class-based revolution was
"borrowed" to justify authoritarian statism that fascists directly
advocate.   Michael Hoover
