What is Maoism?

Maoism is a political ideology and interpretation of Marxism-Leninism that developed in China under the leadership of Mao Zedong, who was the leader of the Communist Party of China from the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949 until his death in 1976. Maoism emphasizes class struggle, the mobilization of the popular masses and permanent revolution as means to achieve a communist society.

The armed struggle: Mao maintained that revolution could only be achieved through armed struggle led by the communist party and supported by the popular masses. This manifested itself in the Chinese and the Rectification Campaign, among other events.

The theory of the town as a basis: Mao argued that political power should reside with the masses of the people, especially the peasants, who made up the majority of the Chinese population at the time.

The continuation of the revolution under socialism: Mao believed in the need for continued class struggle even after socialism was established, to prevent the restoration of capitalism and move towards communism.

The criticism of revisionism and “state capitalism”: Mao opposed what he perceived as deviations from socialism, including bureaucratization and the restoration of capitalist relations, even within the communist party itself.

Maoism was an influential force in China during the rule of Mao Zedong, and also had an impact on revolutionary movements and communist parties in other countries, especially in Latin America and Asia. However, after the death of Mao and the reforms led by Deng Xiaoping in China, Maoism lost much of its influence as the dominant ideology in the country, although it remains an important current in world political thought.
