Eh, I dunno. Anarcho-Communism/Synicalism already encompasses all the Marxist parts worth having.

Generally speakingm "marxism" as an ideology doesn't make a lot of sense, since Marx was all over the place when proposing alternatives to Capitalism. Mostly it's used as a gravitas to give weight to Leninist methods who consider themselves the one true way.

Yea, the person who I thought was my friend was a Leninist. She recommended "What Is To Be Done" for someone in my situation (high-stress low-power limited money and energy for education) and I couldn't finish it after bla bla bla everybody's got problems.

Anyone who has ever been silenced by the phrase, "But that would be communism!" is going to have some sort of a kiddie krush on Marx. "That's normal" is about the amount of energy I have to devote to it atm.
