In history, "Marx" is usually synonymous with Karl Marx, the man who along with Fredrich Engels is considered the father of communism. These two men wrote the Communist Manifesto, which laid out the idea of communism, which can really be considered a form of extreme socialism.
Other men, such as Vladimir Lenin, would read the works of Marx and be led to start revolutions and spread communism throughout the world.
In theory, communism could work. However, applied in real life, the dreams of Karl Marx would never fully materialize.
"And while Lenin read a book on Marx, a quartet practiced in the park/ and we sang dirges in the dark, the day the music died."- Don McLean, "American Pie" (the song, not the movie)

German social theorist widely taught at universities around the U.S. A very popular thinker among U.S. college students of limited intellectual capacity or liberal political inclination.

Marx taught that the property owners oppressed the poor working class people. They did this primarily through religion which was described as the opiate of the masses and an effective means of controlling people. Marx, while being an atheist, considered himself something of a prophet, and Marxism the absolute truth.

In this manner Marx subtlety deceived the mass of mediocre intellectuals into worshiping him as their messiah. Marx is the messiah to Marxists and Marxism is their religion. Marxism, like many religions, is dogmatic and requires unquestioning obedience. Critical thinking is unacceptable. Marx wrote that any philosophy or perspective other than Marxism is capitalist ideology or false consciousness used to control people. Marx taught that the only truth is Marxism and only Marxism can liberate people.

In this regard Karl Marx is no different from any other religious extremist such as Osama bin Laden who wishes to exterminate all non Muslims. Marxist leaders throughout history have often exterminated citizens critical of Marxism.

Mao Tse Tung alone killed 50 million Chinese who were considered disobedient to the Marxist ideal. He especially targeted intellectuals who he asked to give advice on how the Marxist ideal could be improved. When they offered criticism and advice, they were rounded up and executed.

Marx the philosopher was a communist Nazi pig that is now sucking Hitler's cock in hell! And from what Linda Blaire in the exorcist says, Marx is doing a great job of it to!

Karl Heinrich Marx was born in Germany and came from a long line of Jewish Rabbis. Marx's family rejected Judaism and moved onto Christianity (which that's about the only fucking good thing he ever fuck'n did!). However the Marx family only did this out of pressure from the government, so in a sense depending on outcomes the Marx family may have converted to Satanists if it were on the cards. Why struggle when you can bend?

Karl Marx then came up with this crazy theory about the working class and the struggles of mankind in regards to labor markets. Cutting a long story short, Marx was just someone who got caught up in the moment of the times and was a total hypocrite!

Marx was apparently for the working classes and had all these Nazi theories of giving up your personal freedom, control and wealth to the government, but yet Marx married into wealth, and not only that he married into royalty!

Marx married Jenny von Westphalen a daughter of a German baron. This was kept very secret at the time as Marx was going into politics and didn't want to be perceived by his hard working class folk as someone who was a hypocrite!

Marx most famous works are 'Class Struggles', however now marrying into royalty with rich fuck buddy friends like Friedrich Engels and having sex with maids, Marx's only struggle in life was to keep up a perception of deceit!

In a sense Marx opened the door to Hitler! See cunt, traitor and terrorists.

And for further information on fuck buddies. See George Michael or AIDS-fuck.

Sebastian: Well some people tried to blow up his tomb over in London you know." Te he he
Karen: Any luck with that Marx shit?
Sebastian: No unfortunately. I guess it's hard to blow shit out of the ground!
Karen: Well it was easy for Marx to blow it out his mouth?
