development and self expression. It promises efficient production and equitable distribution of resources,

Marxism is often considered as the foundation of communism. Marxism is the materialist view of the
develoment of the society which believes in Dialect materialism and provides that History of mankind is
history of class struggle, hizacked by capitalist for their own benifit. Marx predicted that, Capitalist system

industrialized and capitalist countries, , Lenin argued


that an underdeveloped and imperialistic nation such as

the Russia Empire, would be the first to turn
communist. He modified the Marxist theory of a
dictatorship of the urban workers to a dictatorship of the exclusive communist party. Like
Lenin, Mao disagreed with Marx on the issue that a communist revolution could only be achieved in

developed industrialized countries. Maos variation of communism focused mainly on the gathering of
rural farmers as opposed to urban industrial workers as Mao himself was originally a peasant pig
farmer. Mao describes his version of communism as Marxism adapted for Chinese circumstances.
2. Marx believes that as the tension rise proletarian would lead to control the economic resources on the

Revolutionary stage (2) the post-Revolutionary stage. The first phase of the Revolution is characterised
by the forcible capture of political power by the proletariat, and its subsequent employment to squeeze
out from society the last remnants of capitalism. At this stage, the State assumes the character of a
class-state; the proletariat adopts a policy, of gradual extension of public ownership by confiscating and
appropriating private ownership.

Marx emphasised on the class struggle within the same country because of hypothetical growth of
their sense of common faternity due to the exploitation but Lenin states that theory of Imperialism is
the strategic need for workers in the industrialized countries to bloc or ally with the oppressed nations

evident by his slogan, Workers and Oppressed Peoples of the World, Unite!.

4. The other distinguishing characteristic of Marxism-Leninism is how it approaches the question of

organization. Lenin believed that the traditional model of the Social Democratic parties of the time,
which was a loose, multitendency organization was inadequate for overthrowing the Tsarist regime in
Russia. He proposed a cadre of professional revolutionaries that disciplined itself under the model
of democratic centralism.On the other hand Mao developed a strategy for revolution called Prolonged
Peoples War in what he termed the semi-feudal countries of the Third World. Prolonged Peoples War
relied heavily on the peasantry.
5. Although Maoism is critical of urban industrial capitalist powers, it views urban industrialization as a
required prerequisite to expand economic development and socialist reorganization to the countryside,
with the goal being the achievement of rural industrialization that would abolish the distinction between
town and countryside.Ulimatly we can conclude that Leninism and Maoism both utilizes the theories of
Marxism, however fit such in the reality of their society.Although the fundamental concept of creating
