In Modern High Common, 'maka' is a word for a monster or villain, specifically describing a person. The specific connotation is a person who is willing to do terrible, brutal, inhuman things to others.
The origins of the term are obscure, coming from early 21st century American politics. The first President Trump's rallying cry for his movement was 'Make America Great Again', which was shortened to the acronym 'MAGA' and used as a hashtag on early social media platforms. It remained as an unofficial motto of the Trump regime's Republican party right up to the collapse of the American Republic.
The early Globalists, even non-American Globalists, were unified in their hatred of the Trump regime and used MAGA as a term of abuse, even when writing in Common. This became regularised to 'maga' and then eventually 'maka' and by the time the word was codified as a normal Common word by the AXZ in the early modern period, the original associations were lost and it was just a word meaning 'very bad person'.
It can have the sense of villainy as well, but that is a more peripheral meaning and another word may suit better, the centre of gravity of the word is brutality ot stupidity. The modifier form is 'makas', meaning having the qualities associated with a maka, and the verb form is a pali verb meaning to be monstrous.
