Given the reality of Fairey's fascist Hope poster and the stampede by the media to get the "charismatic" Obama elected it is a bit rich to lay the charge off on Republicans who are seeking to reduce the power of the government.
Multitude should be thanked for exploring the murkier depths of academic Marxism. Unfortunately that is also completely disconnected from reality as it seeks to magically transform human nature without the use of State power that Marx called for. Leaping straight to the "wither away" phase and expecting Utopian results makes even less sense for a Socialist than it does for a Libertarian Individualist. Perhaps they expect unicorns to effect the transformation.
