Intermediate Course

This intermediate course is meant to help comrades build off of their basic knowledge of  Marxism. It is important to read each document critically. As Chairman Mao reminds us: “There are two different attitudes towards learning from others. One is the dogmatic attitude of transplanting everything, whether or not it is suited to our conditions. This is no good. The other attitude is to use our heads and learn those things which suit our conditions…That is the attitude we should adopt”
