MLM Theory from Norway

Texts from the communist movement in Norway

This page will be regularly updated with both new and old texts.

Maoists maintain that MLM is the most advanced form of revolutionary theory in the world today, and the third stage in the development of a scientific communism. The scientific framework in MLM builds on 150 years of proletarian class struggle, people’s wars, and cultural revolutions – on all of the world’s continents.

See the page for classic texts.

It is not enough to study MLM. Maoists wish to use the theory to analyze the realities within which was work. Maoists must use it to understand conditions and phenomena that they wish to change or combat. Here we have collected texts from Norwegian Maoists who have carried out this very research. See the pages for texts regarding the election boycotts or texts sorted by subject.

The texts do not necessary reflect the official positions of either Tjen Folket Media or the source organizations.
