A man who was far, far ahead of his time.
Marx theorized that false consciousness kept the proletariat from realizing their capacity to act in their class interest, foreseeing the massive popularity of The Real Housewives of {blah} County series, and high school libertarians ~going Galt~

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)

1: the last name of Karl Marx, a soviet politician who invented marxism and popularized communism
2: A villain from the video game series "Kirby" where he has an important role in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. In one of the sub-games "Milky Way Wishes" he tricks Kirby into helping him gain power of the clockwork kitty god and he would use that power to pull pranks on people if Kirby didn't kick his ass

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.
