    I am reading a book that mentioned the post war leader of fhe East German communist party was a socialist prior to becoming a Marxist. It's hard for me to imagine a socialist who wasn't influenced by Marx because he is so deeply intermeshed with modern socialist thinking (at least from my outsider perspectiveI am not a socialisy myself just interested in the history of it). "Utopian" socialism was pejorative, and those the Marxists considered utopian socialists were thought to be naive, fanciful and unrealistic. Socialism would be achieved by the unstoppable locomotive of history and class struggle, not by pious moralising. An example would be Robert Owen. views View 5 Upvoters.
