...and to Maoism.
Maoism or Mao Zedong Thought is another kind of political thought that claims to be an anti-revolutionist form of Marxist communist theory.
It is important to know that this political thought has developed vividly from the ideology framed by the Chinese political leader Mao Zedong who lived between 1893 and 1976.
Maoism believed that a proletarian revolution was necessary to change the society for a better tomorrow. However, instead of a proletariat revolution of the urban workers, Maoism focused on motivating the farming population in China.
The essential difference between Maoism and other forms of Communism is that it claimed that peasants should be the essential revolutionary class in China.
That is because China was a hugely agricultural community at the time.
