Marxism.... All I understand when I read about it is that it is based on socialism and the "founders" are Marx & Engel, who got inspired by Hegel? (if i have right). Anyone who can explain more to me?.. Like Lenninism, how it connects, when it fell ... and when/how Marxism expanded.

well its basically an economic idea, which where kind of the base of communism and social systems back in the early 20th century.
but there are some more persons inspired marx (and engels of course).
had this a bit at university, if you wanna discuss about it, feel free to send me your skype (per pm), and i will add you.
lenninism is advanced form of marxism that was used by stalin back in 1920.
just to make it short ;)

actually I believe socialism came after marxism and communism, being the non-revolutionary version. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I thought everyone already knew what did he have in mind. Still, Buller proves me otherwise. Marx actually said (or wrote for that matter) that there's gonna be a social revolution that will overthrow capitalist economical system and the bourgeoisie and replace it with socialism where the working class somewhat dictates the rules. War of the classes and with that a revolution was indeed a part of socialism itself then. In any case he was an idiot along with his mate (Engels). A person cannot get much dumber (ideas) then fighting with free market, which for some reason worked better then any other economical idea up to date.

Marxism is a set of political and economic ideas that encompasses both Socialism and Communism. Communism (no private property, no social class structure) is the end goal, Socialism (state-centred society and economy) is the means to get to it. Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism etc., are all practical applications of Socialism according to different political leaders.

Marxism was indeed inspired by Hegel's ideas. Both Marx and Engel were members of a Prussian group called the "The Young Hegelians".

This is an answer that will satisfy your Marxist professor (who just so happens to be a huge fan of Hegel).
