"In any age, the so-called progressives treat politics as their religion. Their holy mission is to use the coercive power of the State to remake man and society in their own image, according to an abstract ideal of perfection. Whatever means they use are therefore justified because, by definition, they are a virtuous people pursing a deific end. They are willing to use any means necessary to gain momentary advantage in achieving their end."
The Marxist gospel of atheism leaves people without hope in this life or the next, hence politics because their reason for existence. This explains how progressives justify single party control and trampling on human rights, and the process of how totalitarian regimes come into existence. Single party advocates view dissenters and opposition as evil, standing in the way of "progress", people who must silenced, censored, or destroyed.
