Feedback in the system or Is there an echo in here?

Timothy Snyder posted a text on The New York Review of Books’ blog, titled Grand Old Marxist. It’s a good and elaborate text on how the current crop of Republican politicians are direct descendants of the Cartesian school of Rationalism. But it feels soo eerily familiar, if not downright spooky. He starts his well written piece with the well known Marxist image of being haunted by a specter, and ends with a plea for less ideology. Well, as it just happens, my own short pamphlet lamenting the hegemony of free-market dogma, written some nine months ago, also starts with the same specter and ends with the same plea. Coincidence? You decide.
