Besides Robert Tucker's take on Marx in The Marx-Engels Reader, this is probably the best explanation of what Marx was really trying to accomplish as a socialist. I am NOT a communist, but you have to respect that he was brilliant and that the guy just genuinely wanted the world to be a better place.

Charles L. Katy dearest, we are all communists in fact--its just that the vast majority of us have been socialised with a "false consciousness," translated as acculturated with various degrees of alienation. The truth residing within your heart, Katy, is and always has been in full accord with marxism (n.b., lower-case m). And when, once you've aligned your intellect with that same heart, you too will have passed from your present existence in "pre-history" to realise your full humanity.
