Rhizzone user “stegosaurus” has transcribed and bound English language versions of the Maoist classic “Selected Essays on the Study of Philosophy by Workers, Peasants and Soldiers” for free. From the editor’s note:
The broad masses of workers, peasants and soldiers have written excellent essays telling how they study and apply Chairman Mao’s philosophic thinking in their revolutionary struggle. The nine selected here are only a small part. They are factual and reason things out, are pungent in style and set forth a clear-cut point of view. Vividly reflecting on the rich gains of China’s workers, peasants and soldiers from living study and application of Chairman Mao’s philosophic thinking, they are eloquent proof that workers, peasants and soldiers should and can master philosophy, and thus declare total bankruptcy for the fallacy that “philosophy is mysterious.”
