What should I read if I want to be a Maoist intellectual?

The only authors I've been suggested are Althusser and Badiou. Who else?

 No.21010

Gonzalo

I’d also suggest Frantz Fanon.

 No.21011

>>21009
Mao and Mao somemore
Gonzalo if you want to be edgy

 No.21012

The Battle For China’s Past

 No.21014

>>21010
>>21011
Any Black Maoist texts?

 No.21015

>>21014
Assata’s autobiography.

 No.21016

>maoism
>intellectual
i guess if you want to read some french asshole's philosophical ramblings, or mao's ghostwriter awkwardly aping lenin, then go ahead

 No.21017

Unironically:

Heidegger
Eviola
Carl Schmitt

 No.21018

>>21017
How does reading reactionaries make me a better Maoist?

 No.21020

Settlers — J Sakai

 No.21023

>>21018
Maoism rejects linear time or some shit.

 No.21024

>>21018
Even reactionary theory can contain valuable tools. Carl Schmitt wrote some insightful things about the bourgeois state in particular.
>>21020
I don't recommend this text. Sakai often doesn't cite and made several factual errors.

 No.21130

So NO ONE is going to mention Bettelheim???

 No.21135

>>21024
What factual errors?

 No.21158

Someone post the BPP reading list.

 No.21207

>>21135
Whatever hurt his settler feefees

 No.21210

>>21009
I think most people in this thread are not being serious and are giving out recomendations not linked to Maoism at all. Here's a starter list:

>Collected Works of Mao and the works from the Great Debate and Cultural Revolution

>Collected Works of the PCP
>A World to Win magazine (just read enough to understand who the RIM were, you can find the publications on BannedThought.net)
>Publications of the CPP, Ang Bayan magazine, and Sison's Works
>Works of the CPI(M) and Ajith (he writes BANGERS).
>J. Moufawad-Paul

 No.21211

Mao was consistently against the application of "red terror" in villages where the Red Army stayed. Many of his works from the 1930s are about preventing such "excesses," e.g. unjustified attacks on rich peasants, "commandism," etc.

i read part of this and it was good

 No.21306

>>21211
Would Mao have approved of October 7th?

 No.21403

>>21207
Usually the main criticism is Sakai uses a lot of quote mining.

 No.21404

Sison wrote a textbook on Maoism, similar to the one anon posted here >>21212

 No.21542

Any books that are unironically pro-Khmer Rouge or pro-Shining Path?

I know Jan Myrdal (Swedish NazBol) has praised Pol Pot before.

 No.21603

>>21024
Also Herbert Marcuse wrote a book on Heideggerian Marxism

 No.21729

>>21603
That too.

 No.21829

>>21009
all of Mao
Zhijiang Xinyu

>>21010
Already knew this was going to be first post.
We need more obscure maoists!
>>21542
I have seen books triying to rationalize their actions (and inactions) but being Pro, not even from them tbh.

 No.21833

>>21210
Seconding this, just replace Gonzalo with Cockshott.
Also crazy this hasn't been linked yet (MLM library canon of ebooks, has hosted virtual conferences interviewing prominent Maoists internationally, check their youtube): https://foreignlanguages.press/

 No.21872
