Maoism is a type of political philosophy named after Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong. Maoists believe in advocating revolution and armed struggle to establish communism or socialist systems. Maoism is based on Mao's version of Marxism-Leninism, which stressed the importance of the peasantry and agricultural development in achieving a communist revolution. Maoists believe that people should work together cooperatively to fight against oppression and exploitation, and then share the wealth produced among themselves. The purpose of Maoism is to advance the interests of the workers and the oppressed, and create a society that is more just and equitable.
