    All those Communist thugs you mentioned.  None lived the life of austerity, sacrifice, and commonality they preached to their citizens.  They lived in luxury and were hardly role models for the cause.  All of those regimes were hardly socialist in the mold of Marx's writings.  They were authoritarian.  Yes, the ideology gave them the path to rise to power but let's not blame Marxism.  Let's blame greedy and violent people that co-opt sound philosophy.  There is not a lick of difference between Stalin and Moussolini, Hitler and Pol Pot.
