    can someone explain this in simple terms please? Also how would a Marxist feel about capitalism?

    A Marxist is a follower of the works of the German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. They believe that outdated class structures should be overthrown with force in revolutions rather than be replaced through gradual modification. As capitalism has succeeded feudalism, Marxists think that it too will be removed by a dictatorship of the workers (the proletariat) in a system called socialism, however this is said to also be followed by a classless society which is able to govern itself without the existence of a governing class structure in place. This means that Marxists are fundamentally opposed to capitalism.
