: I am confused as to how nationalism relates to Marxism. I keep reading that marxism is very nationalist but at the same time it seems that any idea that advocates communist ideals must intrinsically be antinationalist

Where do you keep reading that Marxism is nationalist? It definitely isnt although some perversions of marxism use nationalism to try and gain support for the nation state and nationalisation, however this isnt really consistant with a genuine marxist analysis which insisted in the replacement of the state with a paris commune stlye system of government.

Marxism is only one strand within socialism too.
