These Marxists include celebrities like John Lennon, Tupac Shakur and Tom Morello

Marxism is an ideology propagated by the great German revolutionary and philosopher Karl Marx. The intention of Marxism is to shun hierarchy and create a classless society where everybody is treated with equal respect and dignity. Marx was apparently furious by the way states were governed according to the whims and fancies of the ruling class, without considering the interests of the commoners. Thus, Karl Marx paved the way for a new revolution, a movement which revolted against monarchy and fought for the betterment of the society. Marx had even penned his thoughts in a book called ‘Das Kapital’, which spoke about capitalism and is considered one of the most influential literary works in history. This book has also significantly changed the style of governance in many countries across the world. The followers of Marx and his ideology are Marxists. Nations like China, Cuba, North Korea and Vietnam have been governed by Marx’s ideology for several years now. In fact, Cuba, which was governed by the legendary Fidel Castro for almost 5 decades, continues to be governed by a Marxist model. Many famous celebrities were Marxists too. Online sources have claimed that musicians like John Lennon, Tom Morello and Tupac Shakur have Marxist leanings. The ‘Beatles’ star John Lennon was one of the most influential and powerful public figures in England during the glorious 60’s and 70’s. In one of his interviews, Lennon had claimed that he’s a socialist. Here’s a list which consists of other famous celebrities who are Marxists too.
