An academic label for someone who adheres to the theories, or methods, of Karl Marx, who proved that society can be studied by science. The term is confused by a lot ignorant asshats who are unable to parse Marxism from small 'c' communism; the latter being a very specific type of society, whereas Marxism is more a way of understanding how the world is shaped by material conditions and the imperatives of class power, which are the real motor forces of history.
Marxists are defined by the methods they use to analyze society and develop systematic conceptualizations of its contradictory features, not by a strict political doctrine as is often believed.

adj. common term used to describe someone who does not believe what you believe. Note: most abusers of this never read anything by Karl Marx (save maybe his propoganda script) so they generally have no idea what he is all about.
I am tired of that Marxist never agreeing with me. I mean, i am Glenn Beck, and i never went to school, but all my ideas are grand and spectactular.

Get a Marxist mug for your buddy Julia.
A college-educated vaguely bohemian liberal (usually female and white) who, while shopping for $400 jeans and planning visits to exclusive Vegas nightclubs, espouses Marxist revolution, loves Che and/or anti-WTO protests, and claims empathy for the poor and oppressed as long as they don't move in next door. He or she will have traveled to a relatively safe city in the developing world with Starbucks, like Dubai, Buenos Aires, or Cape Town. Will have a piece of "ethnic" art in his or her condominium and/or suburban house in a gated community.
The border protest was attended by a group of Neiman Marxists who held signs and stayed back on the pavement.

A modern day socialist or communist (or general far left individual) who doesn't realize what a failure left-economics are, and persists in proclaiming themselves part of a marxist group, despite wearing a tee shirt from Walmart and drinking Starbucks latte.

It is uncommon to see a Starbucks Marxist who has a degree- and those that do normally hold the title "bachelor of arts in women's studies."

Common amongst Starbucks Marxists is undying love for Hugo Chavez, Che Guevara, Joseph Stalin, or Karl Marx.
The Starbucks Marxist proclaims his support for communist causes, while wearing a 30 dollar tee shirt made in India by 12 year olds.

The ideology stemming from writers; Marx, Engels, Lenin.

MLs believe that a successful socialist revolution needs a vanguard party and that there needs to be a transitionary period where the bourgeosie are oppressed out of existance. This usually occurs through the seizure of private property, nationalization of industry, and bourgeois culture. The proleteriat via the vanguard party will create a workers state which will implement all of what's said above. Eventually the state will whither away as it becomes less needed usually when the threat of counter revolutionary behavior is gone, and then we will have communism, a stateless, classless, moneyless society.
You know MLs aren't red fascists right? They were instrumental in defeating them.

I am a Marxist-Leninist some of my favorite works are State and Rev and Imperialism by Lenin, along with Principles of Communism, and German Ideology.
