Does Darwinism lend support more naturally to a capitalist moral-economic perspective or to a Marxist one?

On this episode of ID the Future, David Klinghoffer explores the deep Darwinian roots of Communism. Klinghoffer argues that while Marx had already begun sketching the outlines of his ideas before Darwin published the Origin of Species, he is fairly called a Darwinist; and the men who translated Marxism into practical political terms in the form of Soviet terror were evolutionary thinkers, just as they themselves claimed to be.
