"The proletarians are told that the intelligentsia is not implicated in exploitation and lives by selling its own intellectual work power. This is a popularization of that abstract economic doctrine which declares inviolable the possessions of educated society."

Machajskism, Makhaevism, or Anti-Intelligentsia Anarchism (AIA), (pronounced Ma-High-Skee, Ma-Hay-Skee or /maˈ for the big brain people that SHOULDN'T BE HERE) argues that the class interests of intellectuals, including Marxist social democrats, are opposed to that of manual workers, since the unproductive labour of intellectuals depended upon preserving a hereditary monopoly on education at workers' expense. Rather than put their hopes in political revolution, revolution would consist of a violent revolt of the unemployed worker-peasant.

Machajskism thus attempted a theoretical synthesis of Anarchist political critique and Marxist political economy and historical materialism, by applying the Marxist critique of class-dominated ideology to Marxism itself. Machajskism theorised a " state capitalist" moment of social development, approximating the seizure of power by intellectuals of the state apparatus, and the oppression of the working class by intellectuals acting to further capitalism in its dying days.
