To wax postmodern, theory is an important terrain of struggle. My hunch
is that the right wing would not be in the position it is today without
the efforts of Nozick, Hayek and Friedman in the 70's. Having a monopoly
on the mass media helps, but the politicos were not exactly taking the
advice of Chauncey Gardener.
Re: Marx and clarity. Remember that the works Marx published and
intended to publish during his lifetime are very clear. Chap 1 of V1 of
K is an exception especially sec. iii. The difficult theoretical work
like the Grundrisse were not intended to be published and I doubt
whether Marx would have published them in the condition they are
published in today.
