"Our politic comes out from the barrel of our guns". Mao Zedong
Mao in his entire life published 4 books. All 4 books had been translated to Farsi. His main idea has been crystallized in a thick book by the name of "4 philosophical essay".He classifies the combats into 2 different categories.
These concepts were implemented by Fadaeyan in Syakal during shah days. Syahkal is a area of Gilan providence in northern Iran. It is located close to Caspian sea by Russian border. There is a fine line between Maoism and terrorism. Mao described combat between oppositions of unequal strength with overly armed enemies as tactic. He also describes gurrila warfare along with political propaganda in a long run achieves poltical objectivity which he calls "strategy". Attack and withdraw is intended to break large group of enemy. Mao emphasis that combination of guerrilla warfare with propaganda and political influences leads to revolution in a long run. Mao's view about revolution is distinctively differed from Marx or Lenin. In order the revolution develops, Marx emphasis on 2 components which are basics.
B. Mass awareness of the poverty.
Marx believed poverty alone doesn't lead to revolution. Awareness of the source of poverty is necessary to create social revolt. on the other hand, Lenin also believed the revolution happens when
A. The top, ruling class, can NOT rule
B. The bottom, mass, can NOT cop.
There is nothing about "guerrilla warfare" in Marx or Lenin manuscripts. 2 brothers Ahmadzadeh were founders of communist party Fadaeyan in Iran. They summarized Mao's guerrilla warfare into Farsi. They also attended in Syahkal guerrilla combats during shah days. They both were arrested and executed by Royal court in 1971. They engaged in Mao's model of warfare in Syahkal. Their father became governor of Khorasan right after revolution but his governmental position didn't last that long and he was being dismissed. Mao's destructive ideas could be seen on Amir Parviz pooyan write ups. He was also one of the founders of Fadaeyan communist organization. Pooyan committed suicide in his residence when the house was surrounded by shah secret police SAVAK. SAVAK found his dead body on the floor. Apparently, he took his own life before he get arrested. Pooyan, In his main book, "the necessity of armed warfare" divides socio political context of Iran into 2 hemispheres.
