Idk much about the specifics of Maoism but with the whole "mass line" thing are maoists more like Tankies or anarchists?

mass line is what maoists successfully bait anarchists with and why people from the two tendencies flipflop all the time

The Communist Party of Nepal - Maoist, along with 32 other political parties, is organizing a boycott of the November 19th illegitimate elections called by the ruling powers of the country. The state has responded by arresting dozens of members of the CPN-M, while receiving large shipments of military aid from the US and India in order to repress the people’s revolutionary movement.

Stand against US imperialism and Indian expansionism. Stand with the people of Nepal.


In Focus: The Last Maoist Village in China

In Nanjie Village, locals still wake to loudspeakers blaring “The East Is Red,” the classic anthem of People’s Republic of China during the Cultural Revolution in the 1960s. Nanjie, with more than 3,100 residents, is touted as one of the last models of communist China, where the principles of the late Chairman Mao still strictly guide the people’s daily lives. In the 1980s, when the rest of China was introducing market reforms, Nanjie went the other direction, collectivizing its farms and industries. Aside from free housing, healthcare, food rations and education, locals working in the village’s factories receive an average salary of 2,500 yuan (about $400 USD). Reuters photographer Jason Lee recently traveled to Nanjie, coming back with the photographs below.
