Top definition
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.
