The matter of authority

Marx and Engels looked at authority from the bottom up, from the perspective of the lower classes who viewed the legitimate authority of the ruling class as an instrument of oppression. 
They did not see the matter of authority from the perspective of those who wielded it, of those who were responsible for it, and of those who understood how to make it work for the good of society.
