Three Marxist-Leninist-Maoist reading guides

Below are the three MLM reading lists/guides I know about. I haven’t read but a small fraction of these, but I thought sharing them would help others.

1. The one on massline.org: http://massline.org/MLM_Study/MLMstudy.htm

2. One that was recently posted to the /r/Maoist subreddit. It was deleted, but I saved a copy and it is reproduced below.

3. One that was not so recently posted as a random comment in the MLM Communism 101 Facebook group once and I think was also deleted. This is also posted below.

A QUICK NOTE ON FINDING THESE DOCUMENTS

A lot of these things are available with a simple google search. Often you will find them on marxists.org, marx2mao.com, bannedthought.net, or massline.org. Many more are on http://gen.lib.rus.ec (which, if you’ve never used it and are having trouble w/ it, just lmk and I’ll provide some instructions.) If you can’t find something on any of those, lmk and I’ll see what I can do.
