"In the eighty-year-long Hemoclysm sparked by Princip's bullets, three individuals—Stalin, Hitler, and Mao—were responsible for most of the violent deaths. [...] Most of the violence of the twentieth century has been caused by illiberal ideology, namely, Nazism and communism."--Political Questions: Political Philosophy from Plato to Pinker (2015) by Larry Arnhart

Mao Zedong (1893 – 1976) was a Chinese politician, communist philosopher, military strategist, poet, and revolutionary who was the founder of the People's Republic of China (PRC). Ideologically a Marxist–Leninist, his theories, military strategies, and political policies are collectively known as Maoism.
The ideology of Maoism has influenced many Communists, mainly in the Third World, including revolutionary movements such as Cambodia's Khmer Rouge, Peru's Shining Path, and the Nepalese revolutionary movement. Under the influence of Mao's agrarian socialism and Cultural Revolution, Cambodia's Pol Pot conceived of his disastrous Year Zero policies which purged the nation of its teachers, artists and intellectuals and emptied its cities, resulting in the Cambodian Genocide.
The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA also claims Marxism–Leninism-Maoism as its ideology, as do other Communist Parties around the world which are part of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement. China itself has moved sharply away from Maoism since Mao's death, and most people outside of China who describe themselves as Maoist regard the Deng Xiaoping reforms to be a betrayal of Maoism, in line with Mao's view of "Capitalist roaders" within the Communist Party.
