Could someone briefly explain to me how (according to Maoists) Maoism/MLM is a "rupture" from Marxism-Leninism, and not just Marxism-Leninism with some extra stuff?

pdf related should answer all your questions.

My personal additions: Maoism is ambigous about dialectial materialism, calls for a "revolution after the revolution", is way more decentralized, strives for an informal democracy, embodies romantic adventurism in the form of insurrectionism and generally a bit more ultra than regular Marxism-Leninism. Most Marxist-Leninist-Maoists don't accept Cuba and the DPRK as actually-existing socialism.

Could you point me to a specific page (or pages) that explains how MLM is a rupture from, and not just a continuation of, ML? I know about that book and I intend to read it sometime (thanks for the pdf), but I have some other books I wanna get through first.

Well consider the title: rupture and continuity

>MLM is a rupture from, and not just a continuation of, ML

if you knew dialectics, you'd know that rupture and continuity are part of the same process

OP here. I've actually read the entire book now and I feel like I have a better understanding of MLM. There are parts of MLM (the way the book portrays MLM, at least) I really like, although I'm still not sure I agree with all of it.

There was a thread where I argued with Ismail on that. Can't remember where it is. Maybe Ismail knows and can bring it back here.

TLTR; Maoism/MLM is a rupture from ML.

Just my reading from Mao's last work in 1976, his major concern was the socialism state still functions in capitalism exchange logic and has a market, bourgeois rights still exists, thus capitalists will sooner or later come back, and pointed out the class struggle is not over even in a Socialist state, major contradictions in society such as urban-rural differences, blue collar-white collar labor differences, etc., these differences are not solved. Thus he called for "continue revolution under the dictatorship of proletarian", and pointed out the class struggle is not over even in a Socialist state, major contradictions in society such as urban-rural differences, blue collar-white collar labor differences, etc., these differences are not solved.

This whole idea is originted from Marx's critique of the Gotha Program, so it is clearly an extension reading of Marxism.
