    A Marxist is an individual, group, or entity that adheres to and supports the beliefs, principles, and ideologies of Marxism. This political and economic theory, developed by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, posits that societal problems are largely due to the unequal distribution of wealth and resources, and advocates for a society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the proletariat, or working class, ultimately leading to a classless society. Marxism is often associated with socialist or communist political ideologies.
