Welcome to ProleWiki!

We are ProleWiki, a communist (Marxist-Leninist) project founded in September 2020. Our aim is to build an anti-imperialist and proletarian collaborative encyclopedia, with information on current events, communist parties worldwide, countries, and more. We also host a library of texts important to the international proletarian movement, from Marx and Engels to Lenin and Stalin. Since our beginning in 2020, we currently have 3,016 articles and counting.

  • Total number of articles: 3,016
  • Number of uploaded files: 2,753
  • Number of comrades: 93
  • Number of edits: 42,478

Marxism is a scientific worldview and school of thought first developed by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. The theoretical framework developed by Marx and Engels was a critical synthesis of French utopian socialism, British political economy and German classical philosophy. Since the 19th century, Marxism has then developed into several different currents of thought, such as Marxism-Leninism, Maoism or Mao Zedong thought, Ho Chi Minh thought and many other schools of thought. The Marxist scientific worldview has developed through the study of social and historical development based on the historical materialist method.

Marx and Engels first developed scientific socialism through their struggle against the utopian socialists, and reached new grounds with the publication of Capital, vol. I. Marxism was elevated in the 20th century with the practice of the dictatorship of the proletariat, which was the Leninist contribution to Marxism.

It also provides an excerpt of the essay, ultimately all improving discovery.
