This is quite true.

The difference is that it is the final synthesis of Marxism. Dubois was probably so focused on antipathy towards 'Capitalism' he failed to see the movement in America towards collectivism that began in earnest with FDR. This was also shortly after the McCarthy witch hunts and the start of the Cold War against the USSR. These all tended to be distractions to prevent people seeing what was going on under their noses.

For as long as I can remember I have believed that Marx and Engels used the dialectic of Capitalism and Socialism to bring forth Managerialism...the rule of the technocrat. This places those with the monopoly of money creation at the centre of power surrounded by an army of experts and managers who run their empire for them. It is a kind of oligarchy surrounded by a priesthood. I believe this is what is presently being engineered in its final form and the struggles underway are to determine who will be at the centre of power.

This objective was completely obscured from those involved in the two wings of the thesis-antithesis like Dubois but there was one former Trotskyist who saw it coming and wrote a book about it. His name was James Burnham and his book was The Managerial Revolution published in 1941.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
