Yes I see- ephemeral and illusory promises instead of reality.
I think it is Wolfe's dualism that creates so many interpretational tangles for some, and that the things you mention are a part of that difficulty.

The enmity between Communism and Christianity stems from Marx's belief that religion was used to keep the proletariat in line, to lure them away from their just rights with the promise of (as the song says) "pie in the sky by and by." Or, as long as I'm on songs, songs like Bob Marley's "Get Up Stand Up" put it very well.
Mind you, I'm a Catholic liberal, so I have a bias in these things.
