1. Maybe that's true.
2. I don't think that's true of Marxists.  Fascists just want to repress peoples' rights as far as I know, although they also kill.

There has never been a Marxist government which respected human rights. They and the Fascists have a 'vision' and to them, it's so important that individuals can and will be sacrificed on the alter of societal perfection. Both despise 'imperfection' in society, and that imperfection largely consists of people. Neither has been the least reluctant to do away with those imperfections in rebuilding their societies. You might think the Marxists today are better than the ones which we've seen in previous governments but they're not. They're exactly the same. Oh, as long as they talk about things in an academic way and have no power you don't get to see it. Put them in power, though, and you get the same thing as under a Fascist, because in both cases, the ends justify the means. Daniel Ortega is a good example. He got elected with 38% of the vote, promising he was no longer a Marxist but was now a 'democratic socialist'. He almost immediately set about castrating democratic bodies in Nicaragua and eliminating the possibility of anyone unseating him. The next election was a joke, as he cheated freely and barred foreign observers, and Nicaragua is going the way of Venezuela now, another 'socialist' paradise.
